"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Mixed Fried Vegetables
Mixed Fried Vegetables
(Fritto Misto di Verdure)

For the Vegetables:
Aubergines, onions, asparagus, cauliflower, courgette flowers, mushrooms
Extra virgin olive oil

For the Batter:
1/2 cup (150 grams) plain flour
One tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Carefully clean and wash all the vegetables; dry and cut into pieces of roughly equal size.
Note: Cut the onions and aubergines into rings, the courgettes vertically into sticks, the artichokes into segments, split the cauliflower into single florets. You only need to remove the stalks of the asparagus and the courgette flowers.
Clean the mushroom caps with a damp cloth, trim away the root end and scrape the stalk lightly with a knife. The mushrooms should only be coated with flour before frying.

Prepare the Batter:
Using a wooden spoon beat together the flour, olive oil, salt and just enough water to make a fairly thick paste which should be smooth and creamy, leaving ribbon-like trails when it falls from the spoon. If you like a frothier batter, replace the water with the same amount of beer, or use half water and half beer.

Put the batter in the fridge for an hour before using it to coat the vegetables. The greater the difference between the temperature of the hot olive oil and that of the cold batter, the crisper the fry will be.

Dip the vegetables into the batter and fry in plenty of olive oil over a medium heat, until light golden. Do not allow them to become too dark in color as this will give the fry a slightly bitter taste.

Drain and place the fried vegetables on kitchen paper to dry and serve hot, sprinkled with salt and freshly ground pepper.
