Kid friendly summer veggies

Grilled or roasted summer vegetables are one of my favorite side dishes but most of the kids will not eat them . This is a easy method that I have used to make it more appealing for them to try .


1/2 medium size sweet onion
2 colored sweet peppers
1/5 of large zucchini
6 Tbsp cooking oil

For the batter

Mix 1/3 cup pancake flour and 1/4 tsp salt with 1/3 cup of cold water until there is no more lumps in the mixture.


Cut the vegetables as seen on the picture below. For the zucchini : cut them thin circles and use a shot glass to take the middle part out.

Put the vegetables inside the pancake batter and mix well until they get lightly coated as seen on the picture below.

Frying direction

Put 6 Tbsp of oil in a large non stick pan. Put the pan over a large burner on medium high heat . Once the oil is hot put the vegetables in. Fry them until crispy on both sides as seen on the pictures below.

When done , put them on the cooling rack over paper towel in order to take off the excess oil .
