TGIFF, my fellow Healthkickers!
The idea of a "fried vegetable" seems kind of counterproductive, doesn't it? I mean, the reason we eat vegetables (aside from them tasting good) is so that we can get our vitamins and minerals and nutrients -- right? And when we fry our vegetables, we're ruining all that!
But man, they taste good.
My favorite fried vegetable is fried string beans. I first had them at TGI Fridays, and was hooked! They were so good, and I was shocked at how much I liked them!
I also know people who love fried zucchini, fried green tomatoes and fried squash blossoms.
What's your favorite fried vegetable? Do you make them at home, or do you get them when you're out to eat? Is frying a vegetable really eliminating all of the nutrients?
