Crispy Tempura Green Beans with Spicy Sauce – Gluten and Dairy Free

Green Bean Photo Step By Step Well DoneCrispy green beans reminiscent of PF Chang’s gluten filled ‘crispy green beans’ Served with a sweet and spicy dipping sauce even better than theirs! I deep fried (with my mom) for the first time ever! My final conclusion: it was not hard, it stunk up the house, and it tasted really good. Too good, I ate too many and got a stomachache! You definitely can’t taste that it is GF and DF Recipe adapted from ‘My Recipes’ and ‘Key Ingredient’.


Serves: 5-6
Prep Time: < 1 hour


For the

1 cup



2 tablespoons Any hot sauce (I used Cholula)
1 each Small onion, finely diced
4-5 cloves Garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Sweet chili sauce (Or any sweet sauce)
For the

1 pound

Green beans

Green beans, washed and trimmed

4.4 ounces Any gluten free flour blend (I used Namaste)
5 ounces White rice flour
2 teaspoons Paprika
1 teaspoon Baking soda
½ teaspoon Black pepper
2 cups Club soda, chilled
½ teaspoon Kosher salt
4 cups Canola or any other frying oil


Step 1:    In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, hot sauce, onion, garlic, and sweet chili sauce.
Step 2:    Place in the refrigerator to chill until the green beans are done.
Step 3:    In a large mixing bowl, stir together the GF flour blend, rice flour, paprika, baking soda, and pepper.
Step 4:    Add the club soda a stir until fully combined. The batter will be thick. If you want thinner coatings on your green beans, you can add about an extra cup of club soda.
Step 5:    Stir in the prepared green beans until they are fully coated.
Step 6:    In a Dutch oven or a large saucepan; pour in the oil.
Step 7:    Using a candy or deep fry thermometer, heat the oil on high until it reaches 385 degrees.
Step 8:    Toss a few green beans in the hot oil and deep fry for about one minute or until golden brown and crispy. Using a metal slotted spoon, lift the green beans out of the oil and lay them on a paper towel.
Step 9:    Continue deep frying until all of the green beans are gone.
Step 10: Serve with chilled dipping sauce and enjoy!
