Squash Blossom Tempura

Holy vegan deliciousness. Squash blossom tempura. If you have a squash plant or a farmer's market that offers these tasty flowers, pick them up. I use the term "tempura" sort of loosely here.

Batter Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ground mustard seeds
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup ice-cold water

Whisk all these ingredients together right before you're ready to fry

Heat up a pot of canola oil (or whatever oil you desire)

Dip the de-stemmed squash blossoms in the batter and drop into the pot of oil

Let them fry until they are slightly golden brown

Dipping Sauce Ingredients:
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
 1/4 cup water
1 Tbsp. honey

Totally not healthy, but totally amazing.
