Creating an Extra Crispy Batter Mix That’s Vegan & Versatile

vegan Tempura batter mix

The secret to creating a extra crispy batter mix that’s both versatile and vegan friendly is easy, if you start with an Authentic Tempura batter mix. With so many commercial brands of Tempura Mixes available, how do you know if the brand your using is authentic? That’s easy too, if you know what to look for!

Choosing a Authentic Tempura Mix

A truly Authentic Tempura Batter mix will have a short list of ingredients: free of preservatives, MSG, thickeners, spices, flavoring and eggs. The sole purpose of the batter is to add a light, delicate crispy outer layer, enhancing the foods flavor and texture. And because an authentic tempura batter is egg free, it’s a perfect choice for vegan and vegetarian dishes.

The Multi-Purpose Batter Mix

The lack of spices and flavorings is what makes an authentic tempura batter mix so versatile. Simply add water to create a superior light crispy tempura, or add beer for a light crispy beer batter or mix with any liquid to create a wide range of batters. Be as creative as you like and try wine, champagne, fruit juice, sweet drinks like Pina Colada mix or even hot sauce to create your own unique batter flavor from savory to sweet.

An authentic Tempura batter mix can also be used as a pre-batter with Panko, replacing flour and egg wash, allowing you to offer more vegan and vegetarian options on your menu.
