How to Reheat Leftover Tempura Vegetables


Vegetable tempura is best when it's crisp, hot and right out of the fryer. After a night in the refrigerator, however, vegetable tempura looks nothing like it did the day before. You may even be tempted to throw that limp, soggy mess away. But you can return leftover tempura vegetables to their former glory with proper storage and high-temperature, dry heat from the oven. You should only reheat tempura vegetables once, as repetitive heatings and coolings create an environment that cultivates bacteria.
