Ingredients

  • 1/4

    pound sweet peas in pod

  • 1/4

    pound green beans ends snapped off

  • 1

    head broccoli cut thin spears

  • 1

    bunch scallions root ends and greens removed

  • 1

    zucchini cut 1/2"-thick rounds

  • 1

    summer squash cut 1/2"-thick rounds

  • 1

    sweet yellow bell pepper cored, and cut into 1/2"-thick strips

  • 3

    lemons cut into wedges

  • 2

    cups cornstarch

  • 2

    quarts extra-virgin olive oil for frying

  • Salt to taste

Directions

Heat the oil in a deep pan with a basket until just smoking. In a wide, shallow bowl, mix half the vegetables and 1/3 of the lemon wedges. Sprinkle with 1 cup cornstarch and toss quickly with hands to coat. Toss into a large strainer with a handle and bat against hands to remove excess cornstarch. Drop the coated vegetables and lemons into the oil and cook until golden brown and crispy (about 2 minutes). Remove to a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Immediately repeat with the 1/3 of the remaining lemons and all remaining vegetables. Season the hot fried foods with salt and serve immediately with fresh lemon wedges. This recipe yields 6 servings.
