Ingredients

1
cup Gold Medal™ self-rising flour
1/4
teaspoon garlic powder
1/4
teaspoon onion powder
1/4
teaspoon pepper
2
tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1
cup regular or nonalcoholic beer
4
cups fresh broccoli florets
Vegetable oil for deep frying
1/2
cup ranch dressing

Directions

  • 1 In large bowl, mix flour, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, cheese and beer with whisk until smooth. Add broccoli; toss until well coated with batter.
  • 2 In deep fryer or heavy saucepan, heat 2 to 3 inches oil to 375°F. Fry broccoli in batches 2 to 3 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  • 3 Serve warm broccoli bites with ranch dressing for dipping.

Expert Tips

Self-rising flour works best in this recipe, but if you can’t find it, you can substitute 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Be sure to not crowd the fryer or pan, only frying several florets at a time.

Try beer-battering and deep-frying other vegetables, such as green beans, cauliflower florets or zucchini or yellow squash slices.
