    Tempura green beans

    Nagasaki meets New Orleans in these light, crispy, and delicious green beans. I know that starting this book with a recipe for tempura—a Japanese dish of deep-fried battered vegetables—is a bold choice, but I figured we’d jump right into the deep end. Frying can be tricky for a lot of people, and I offer general tips for doing it well on this page. Making tasty tempura is next-level frying that requires specific skills to get it right. To be clear, this technique requires practice—took me about a dozen or so times to feel like I nailed it. Follow these tips and you will be frying up crispy and delicious tempura at home in no time:

    • Mix the batter right before frying your veggies, so the coating is light and crispy.
    • Do not overmix the batter, or your tempura will be doughy. It’s fine if there are some lumps.
    • Add cold, highly carbonated seltzer or sparkling water to the batter to give it airiness. I use our sparkling water machine to make some fresh right before mixing tempura batter.

    I understand that a lot of people striving to maintain a healthy diet avoid fried foods altogether. I get it. I don’t eat them often. But I try to steer clear of extremes and instead walk the middle way of moderation, giving myself room to indulge every once in a while. You should, too. This recipe will comfortably feed four people if you are snacking on the green beans like you would popcorn. I imagine they could feed double that amount if served as nibbles at a summer party. Don’t be shy about dusting these with Creole seasoning and spraying them with skillet-charred lemon juice right before serving to really get the party buck jumping.

    4 to 6 cups sunflower oil, for frying

    3 tablespoons arrowroot powder

    ½ teaspoon Creole Seasoning , plus more for dusting

    ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    1 pound green beans, trimmed

    Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Place the lemon halves in the skillet, cut-side down, and cook until they are charred on the bottom, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the lemon halves to a plate. Remove the skillet from the heat and wipe out any charred lemon bits.

    Pour about 1 inch of sunflower oil into the skillet. Heat the oil over medium-high heat to 375°F. Fill a large bowl one-third full with ice and water and set it nearby.

    While the oil is heating, whisk together the flour, arrowroot, baking powder, Creole seasoning, salt, and pepper in a bowl.

    Add the club soda and 2 ice cubes to the flour mixture and gently stir with a spoon until the batter just comes together, being careful not to overmix (a few lumps are fine). Place the bowl of batter in the bowl of ice water to keep the batter cold.

    Working in batches of 6 to 8, dip the green beans into the batter and let the excess drip off. Add them to the hot oil and fry, moving them around with a wire spider to ensure even cooking, until the batter just starts to turn light golden and crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Using the spider, transfer the beans to a paper towel—lined plate to drain. Place the plate in the oven to keep the green beans warm. Repeat to fry the remaining green beans.

    To serve, arrange the green beans on a large platter, dust with Creole seasoning, and serve with the charred lemon halves.

    Recipe Summary

    • 2 quarts oil for deep frying
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • ¼ cup sesame seeds
    • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer
    • ¾ pound fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
    • salt to taste
    • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 3 teaspoons lime juice
    • 1 teaspoon white sugar

    Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

    In a medium bowl, mix the flour, sesame seeds and beer until smooth. Roll the beans in the flour mixture to coat.

    Deep fry the coated beans in small batches until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes per batch. Drain on paper towels. Salt to taste.

    In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, lime juice and sugar to use as a dipping sauce.

    Recipe Summary

    • Vegetable oil, for frying
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning, plus more for sprinkling
    • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons chilled club soda
    • 1/2 pound green beans
    • Lemon wedges, for serving

    In a large, deep skillet, heat 1/2 inch of oil until shimmering. In a large bowl, whisk the flour with the cornstarch, baking powder, salt and the 1 teaspoon of Old Bay. Gently whisk in the club soda until the batter just comes together do not overmix.

    Working in batches, dip the green beans in the batter, let the excess drip off and add them to the hot oil. Fry until light golden and crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel&ndashlined baking sheet to drain. Sprinkle with Old Bay and serve with lemon wedges.

    Tempura green beans

    • Flour
    • Cold water
    • Egg
    • Fresh green beans trimmed on the ends and cut in half
    • Garlic powder
    • Seasoned salt

    You&rsquoll need vegetable oil too. If you are deep frying them you&rsquoll need more than just adding that into a pot or cast iron pan. Either way works great just so long as they&rsquore submerged.

    The base is just 3 main items. From there add as many seasonings as you would like to the batter in order to jazz it up. From there add more seasonings before serving.

    From there it is quite simple. Using fresh vegetables is best and you&rsquoll want to trim them just as you would if you made baked green beans in the oven. I use the same method when making air fryer green beans as well.

    Make sure they&rsquore dry on the outside so the batter sticks well and doesn&rsquot slide off. Making sure your oil is nice and hot before submerging will ensure they come out crispy like you want them.

    Next you can try our tempura mushrooms too that are now a hit and made with this same tempura batter.

    Recipe Summary

    • 4 cups canola oil
    • 4.4 ounces gluten-free all-purpose flour (about 1 cup such as Bob's Red Mill)
    • 5 ounces white rice flour (about 1 cup such as Bob's Red Mill)
    • 2 teaspoons paprika
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • ½ teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 ¼ cups club soda, chilled
    • 8 ounces green beans, trimmed
    • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
    • Mild Cayenne Sour Cream

    Clip a candy thermometer onto the side of a 4-quart Dutch oven add oil to pan. Heat oil to 385°.

    While oil heats, weigh or lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups level with a knife. Combine flours, paprika, baking soda, and black pepper in a medium bowl. Gradually add club soda, stirring with a whisk until smooth.

    Dip beans, 1 at a time, in batter, coating completely. Add to hot oil in a single layer. (Do not crowd pan.) Fry, in batches, 1 minute or until golden, turning once. (Maintain temperature of oil at 375°.) Drain beans on a paper towel&ndashlined jelly-roll pan. Place pan in oven, and keep warm at 200° until ready to serve. Sprinkle beans evenly with salt just before serving. Serve with Mild Cayenne Sour Cream.

    Spiced Green Beans and Baby Broccoli Tempura

    Deep-frying is not something I do often, but after I’ve eaten well-executed tempura at a restaurant and can’t shake the memory of delicious batter-fried vegetables, I get out my wok. I turn on the hood fan, open the window and start heating up oil.

    I like to play around with different batters and coatings. This spicy, delicate batter is somewhere between a puffy beignet-type coating and a simpler egg, flour and bread-crumb dusting. It’s mostly cornstarch, with a small amount of cornmeal and whole wheat flour — just enough to hold the batter together. I add dukkah, cilantro and cumin for flavor and texture. Ice-cold sparkling water helps keep the batter light it fries up crispy rather than bready because there’s very little gluten to toughen it.

    You can use this batter with all sorts of vegetables, but I particularly love green beans and baby broccoli. The batter wraps itself nicely around the smooth beans and nestles in among the spindly flowers at the end of a baby broccoli stem, resulting in lacy, extra-crispy tempura.

    A wok is ideal for deep-frying. It can accommodate a lot of vegetables at one time without crowding, and it holds heat well. The oil should hover between 350 and 375 degrees so that the vegetables cook quickly and crisp up without absorbing too much oil. Be sure to let the oil come back up to temperature between batches, and use a thermometer. You will be amazed to find a green bean tender and hot inside its crispy coating in two minutes or less.

    The truth about Japanese tempura

    When 16th-Century Portuguese came to Japan, they brought a special dish with them. Today, in Japan, it’s called tempura and has been a staple of the country’s cuisine ever since.

    In 1543, a Chinese ship with three Portuguese sailors on board was headed to Macau, but was swept off course and ended up on the Japanese island of Tanegashima. Antonio da Mota, Francisco Zeimoto and Antonio Peixoto &ndash the first Europeans to ever step on Japanese soil &ndash were deemed &lsquosouthern barbarians&rsquo by the locals because of the direction from which they came and their &lsquounusual&rsquo, non-Japanese features. The Japanese were in the middle of a civil war and eventually began trading with the Portuguese, in general, for guns. And thus began a Portuguese trading post in Japan, starting with firearms and then other items such as soap, tobacco, wool and even recipes.

    The Portuguese remained in Japan until 1639, when they were banished because the ruling shogun Iemitsu believed Christianity was a threat to Japanese society. As their ships sailed away for the final time, the Portuguese left an indelible mark on the island: a battered and fried green bean recipe called peixinhos da horta. Today, in Japan, it&rsquos called tempura and has been a staple of the country&rsquos cuisine ever since.

    No-one knows the exact origins of peixinhos da horta. &ldquoWe know it existed in 1543,&rdquo said Michelin-starred chef Jose Avillez when I met up with him at Cantinho de Avillez, one of his acclaimed Lisbon restaurants. &ldquoBut before that, it&rsquos anyone&rsquos guess.&rdquo

    Green beans, it turns out, changed food history.

    However, peixinhos da horta was only one of many dishes the Portuguese inspired around the world. In fact, Portuguese cuisine, still heavily overshadowed by the cuisines of Italy, Spain and France, may be the most influential cuisine on the planet.

    Portuguese cuisine may be the most influential cuisine on the planet

    When the Portuguese turned up in Goa, India, where they stayed until 1961, they cooked a garlicky, wine-spiked pork dish called carne de vinha d&rsquoalhos, which was adopted by locals to become vindaloo, one of the most popular Indian dishes today. In Malaysia, several staples, including the spicy stew debal, hail from Portuguese traders of centuries past. Egg tarts in Macao and southern China are direct descendants to the egg tarts found in Lisbon bakeries. And Brazil&rsquos national dish, feijoada, a stew with beans and pork, has its origins in the northern Portuguese region of Minho today, you can find variations of it everywhere the Portuguese have sailed, including Goa, Mozambique, Angola, Macau and Cape Verde.

    Peixinhos da horta were often eaten during Lent or Ember days (the word &lsquotempura&rsquo comes from the Latin word tempora, a term referring to these times of fasting), when the church dictated that Catholics go meatless. &ldquoSo the way around that,&rdquo Avillez said, &ldquo[was] to batter and fry a vegetable, like the green bean. And just to add to it, we called it peixinhos do horta, little fish of the garden. If you can&rsquot eat meat for that period of time, this was a good replacement.&rdquo

    The word &lsquotempura&rsquo comes from the Latin word tempora

    And it had other functions too. &ldquoWhen the poor couldn&rsquot afford fish, they would eat these fried green beans as a substitute,&rdquo Avillez said. And sailors would fry the beans to preserve them during long journeys, much in the way humans have been curing and salting meat for preservation purposes for centuries.

    Perhaps not constricted by tradition, the Japanese lightened the batter and changed up the fillings. Today, everything from shrimp to sweet potatoes to shitake mushrooms is turned into tempura.

    &ldquoThe Japanese inherited the dish from us and they made it better,&rdquo Avillez said.

    Avillez said Japanese people sometimes turn up at his restaurants and see the fried bean dish and say, &ldquoHey, Portuguese cuisine is influenced by Japanese cuisine.&rdquo He added, &ldquoAnd that&rsquos when I say, &lsquoNo, in this case it&rsquos the other way around&rsquo.&rdquo A Japanese-born sous chef at Avillez&rsquos two-Michelin-starred Lisbon restaurant, Belcanto, even chose to train in Portugal instead of France because he recognised the influence on his home cuisine, particularly in peixinhos da horta.

    Avillez said his one complaint about the dish, in general, has always been that the beans are often fried in the morning and so they go cold and limp by the time they get to the table later that day. He remedies this by not only cooking them on demand, but by adding a starch called nutrios that keeps them crispy. After the bean is blanched, it gets rolled in the batter of wheat flour, egg, milk, and nutrios and then flash fried.

    Other chefs I talked to in Portugal had their own recipes for the fried green beans, but they didn&rsquot deviate much. &ldquoIt&rsquos a very simple dish,&rdquo said chef Olivier da Costa, when I met up with him at his Lisbon restaurant Olivier Avenida, located in the Avani Avenida Liberdade hotel. &ldquoI use a batter of flour, milk, eggs, salt, pepper and beer,&rdquo he said. &ldquoBeer?&rdquo I asked. &ldquoYes! It ferments the batter and the beer foam gives it a better taste.&rdquo He didn&rsquot have the dish on his menu at the time so I had to take his word for it.

    One reason why Portuguese love peixinhos da horta so much, da Costa said, was nostalgia. &ldquoWe all eat it as children and thus have fond memories of it. These days it&rsquos been making a comeback, not just because people are eating more vegetarian food, but because a younger generation are taking more interest in our local cuisine and because they want to be taken back to that simpler time.&rdquo

    Avillez is taking this newfound interest in super traditional Portuguese cuisine to a new level. Along with his Japanese-born sous chef, he plans to temporarily offer a tasting menu called &lsquo1543&rsquo, the year the Portuguese first showed up in Japan, offering peixinhos da horta and other Portuguese dishes that have inspired Japanese cuisine. Alongside the Portuguese dishes, he plans to serve the Japanese versions that evolved from the Portuguese presence in Japan four-and-a-half centuries ago.

    Each bite was like taking a first bite

    Back at Cantinho de Avillez, an order of peixinhos da horta appeared in front of me. They were rigid like pencils with a lumpy texture and a yellow-ish hue. Each bite was like taking a first bite: crisp, light and super flavourful, the crunchy texture of the batter complimenting the sturdy feel of the bean. The dish has been one of the only consistent items on the menu at Cantinho de Avillez, which opened in 2012.

    &ldquoI can&rsquot take it off,&rdquo Avillez said. &ldquoMy regulars would be enraged.&rdquo
