Batter Fried Veggies Of Joy

What you need: 

3/4 cup unbleached white flour
1/4 cup blue corn meal
1 tablespoon all purpose seasoning (I use Spike)
1/2 teaspoon turbinado sugar
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1/4-1/2 cup cajun seasoning, optional
1 cup nondairy milk (I use soy)
1 tablespoon olive oil
oil, as needed to deep fry
vegetables, sliced, for frying

What you do: 

1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. This mixes easily by hand and will probably make a big purple mess if you use a mixer.
2. Add milk and olive oil; mix until a thick batter forms. This batter may be too thick based on the amount of seasoning you add, so additional milk may be needed. Try not to thin the batter out too much or it may not stick as well.
3. Heat oil to 375 degrees F. I use a deep fryer on my back porch to prevent the oil from greasing up the kitchen and house.
4. Pour vegetables into the batter. Stir batter over veggies until they all have a nice coating. Deep fry in small batches for about 4 minutes per batch.

Awww. I'm going to go use this on all that okra I have sitting around right now!
It looks so good!


As far as ranch dip goes, I usually make mine with veganase, silken tofu as a base and season it with garlic and onion salt/powder, chives, flat leaf parsley, lemon peel/juice, black pepper, and I like to throw in wasabi or horseradish, but that's not in normal ranch sauce....


what brands make a vegan ranch mix??? all of the ones i find have dairy powder ???
OR does anyone know off the top of their head what is in ranch dressing for seasonings so i can fake it
