Tempura Batter

This is one of those recipes that goes more by feel than exact ingredients. Increase or decrease garlic and salt by taste preference. I think rosemary or paprika would also work well here. We did garden green beans as a finger food appetizer and I felt like I was eating straight up junk food they were so addictive. I recommend double battering. Meaning, batter, fry, rebatter, refry, if you want a really good batter coverage. You can omit the egg and it will still work. It will just be a thinner coat of batter. You can also sub in beer or kombucha for the seltzer if you want to jazz things up a bit. 

Here's what you'll need:

~1 cup Otto’s Cassava flour
~1 tsp garlic powder
~1 tsp real salt
1 egg
enough seltzer to make batter consistency.
coconut oil for frying
