Today’s Recipe: Seasoned Mixed Vegetables

Ready, set, dip! If you love the crispness that comes from quickly frying your vegetables, then you'll love the addition of cereal for its unique flavor -- and additional fiber.

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

2 cups vegetable oil, for frying

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup Kellogg’s® All-Bran® Original cereal

2 teaspoons curry powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 1/2 cups seltzer water

4 cups mixed vegetables, such as zucchini, yellow squash, broccoli, cauliflower and whole mushrooms, cut in small pieces

Soy sauce, optional

Directions

  1. In a high-sided skillet, heat oil over moderately high heat.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the flour, cereal, curry, salt, cumin and garlic powder. Mix well to combine. Then add the seltzer and stir with a fork until thoroughly mixed.
  3. When the oil is hot, dip the vegetables in the batter (allowing excess to drain) and add to the hot oil. Cook until the vegetables are golden brown on all sides, about two minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Serve immediately with soy sauce, if desired
