Recipe: Fried Zucchini and Vegie Saute


What you'll need: 

2 Carrots, shredded
6 Brussel sprouts, thinly sliced
3 Large broccoli stems, trimmed and shredded
1 Cup thinly sliced cabbage
1 Medium zucchini, cut into 8 spears
1 Package Deep Fry batter
1 Cup of oil
2 TBSP Butter
1/4 Cup Chicken or Vegetable broth
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1/4 tsp. Cumin
1/4 tsp. Chili powder


What to do: 

Prepare your deep fry batter according to package directions or you can prepare your own. Heat oil in a small deep pan and deep fry your battered zucchini spears for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown. Remove zucchini and set aside on a paper towel. 

In a saute pan heat butter and add all of the shredded vegetables (Except for the cabbage) to the pan. Saute on mediun heat for 6 minutes and then add chicken broth and spices. Continue to saute until the liquid is gone. Serve with deep fried zucchini spears and cole slaw. You can find the recipe for the cole slaw here

Note on the broccoli stems. I know most people just throw the stems away but if you trim that hard outside bit off, you're left with a very juicy, tasty piece of broccoli stem and it's really good for stir fry or vegetable saute or if you're like me, just eating raw.

  16. My goal is always to have more veggies than anything else on my plate. Then we do 1 4 oz serving of lean meat or a serving of plant-based protein like tofu and a serving of starch. This is definitely a move in the right direction.
    I can only eat a limited amount of fats or I get sick so I only have deep fried once or twice a year.
    Good recipe!

    1. I've been saving the meat and most of the carbs for the dinner meals and trying to eat other proteins like eggs and more vegies for breakfast and lunch.
