Who said you can't deep fry cucumbers?
It is time for our Daniel's Fast and I need to figure what to put on my family's dining table. I went through my La Canasta bag and I had 3 cucumbers from last week. I have a lot of cornmeal and have been trying to use it up. I heard that people use cornmeal in their deep-fry batter, so I thought this might work. I found some recipes for cornmeal batter, but all of them included eggs and we can't eat eggs during the fast, so I tried it without eggs. It came out surprisingly good, considering I used cucumbers and no eggs. So here it is my recipe for cornmeal-fried cucumbers! Who would have thought!

Vegan deep-fried cucumber. Yum!

3 good size cucumbers
2 cups of cornmeal
Oil for deep-fry
Some salt and pepper

Peel the cucumbers and cut them into 2/8" thick. Heat the oil on the stove for deep fry. The amount of oil should just cover the cucumber slices once they go in.

Put cornmeal, salt, and pepper into a large bowl. Mix well. Add the sliced cucumber into the mix. Use your hands; toss the cucumber slices around to make sure they are covered with the cornmeal mix.

Fry the coated cucumbers in hot oil. Don't fry too many slices in the pan at the same time; just to cover the bottom size of the pan is good. Fry until they turn golden yellow on each side.

My family loved them and even my husband who doesn't like cucumbers couldn't stop eating them.

This recipe is perfect for a vegan who loves deep-fried food. Just like me!

Okay so...I was fascinated to note you are also doing a Daniel Fast. We are doing a 21 Day Daniel Fast at church. If we want to we can devote the extra time we have to work on developing a closer relationship with Yahweh. The recipe looks interesting - I'll try it here in Sydney NSW Australia as well. GBU.
