Frequently Asked Questions

Why are my tempura green beans not crispy?

Once the wheat flour gets wet, it starts to form gluten. Too much gluten prevents the batter from being crispy and gets lumpy instead. Another reason is the oil is not being enough. Make sure to check if the oil is adequate enough to have the crispiest tempura-fried green beans result!

What can I add to green beans for flavor?

Our copycat recipe is flavored with hints of almond milk and garlic powder and pepper. But there are other herbs and seasonings that go well with the flavors of green beans. You can add thyme, salt, and onion powder for more elaborate flavors!
