Ingredient Checklist
Honey-Mustard Sauce:


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. 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.

  • Drizzle the vegetables with melted butter. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until vegetables are golden brown, gently stirring twice.

  • 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.
