Fried vegetables–um, yea, they’re healthy.
I went on a lunch date with a really cool chic years ago. We went to Mimi’s Cafe and fell in love with a specific item on the menu that we ordered-deep fried panko crusted artichoke hearts. Those artichoke hearts were served with a delicious tangy mayo dipping sauce.
1 can artichoke heart quarters, drained
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour mixed with 1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 egg beaten with 1 Tb water
1 cup natural whole wheat bread crumbs mixed with 1 tsp Italian seasoning
Canola oil for frying
1/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup mayonnaise made with olive oil
1 tsp tarragon
