  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. In a shallow bowl, beat eggs with a fork. In a medium bowl, combine panko bread crumbs and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the vegetables in flour, shaking to remove any excess flour. Dip the vegetables, a few at a time, into the eggs; dip into the panko crumb mixture to coat. Place the vegetables in a single layer in the prepared baking pan.
  3. Drizzle the vegetables with melted butter. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until vegetables are golden brown, gently stirring twice.
  4. Meanwhile prepare Honey-Mustard Sauce: In a small bowl, stir together Dijon-style mustard and honey. Serve immediately vegetable tempura.
  • To make ahead: Prepare as directed through step 2. Cover and chill for up to 3 hours. Honey-Mustard Sauce may be prepared ahead. Cover and chill for up to 3 days. Stir before serving.
