Hey pixels!! Today I wanted to eat something new, different from what I cook every day. I’ve been thinking on trying to make tempura for a while, and today was the day!! I had all the ingredients at home, so no need to go to the supermarket…

tempura 3

It has been easier than I thought it would be. Maybe the recipe I have is a simplification of the real Japanese recipe, but for me, it has been delicious. Easy to make. Healthy. Vegan. Gluten free. Perfect.

I’ve used the vegetables I had at home, but you can use any other ones. Make a lot, it will disappear. No one wanted to try mine, but in the end, everybody was eating it.


  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 zucchini
  • 4 tablespoons cornflour (or regular flour if you can eat gluten)
  • cold water (it has to be really cold, I freezed mine for 5′ before using it)
  • salt, vegetable oil for frying

Note: feel free to use the veggies you prefer.


Chop your vegetables. Add a bit of salt to them.

Mix cornflour with a bit of cold water. It should be a bit thick. Use this batter to coat your veggies. Fry them in hot vegetable oil.

You can eat your tempura with a bit of soy sauce and a bowl of rice.

Do you make japanese food at home, my happy pixels? Do you like it? Please, let me know in the comments below.


  • 1 pimiento rojo
  • 1 calabacín
  • 4 cucharadas de harina de maíz (o de trigo si podéis comer gluten)
  • agua fría (meter un bol con agua en el congelador durante 5′)
  • sal, aceite vegetal para freír 

Nota: podéis usar las verduras que más os apetezcan.


Cortar las verduras en trozos no muy grandes. Añadir sal.

Mezclar la harina de maíz con el agua fría. Debería ser un poco espeso. Usar esta mezcla para rebozar las verduras. Freírlas en aceite vegetal bien caliente. Escurrir con un papel de cocina.

Podéis comer vuestra tempura con salsa de soja y un bol de arroz.

¿Preparáis comida japonesa en casa, mis felices pixels? ¿Os gusta? Podéis dejar un comentario.
