mushrooms for sure ... would you still consider pickles a veggie since they started out as one? Fried dills are great!

I roast green beans, cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus. Only veggie I fry is green tomatoes and whole okra--with cornmeal breading.

Give me a good tempura or beer batter and I will try frying just about anything, we all love deep fried green beans, pencil thin asparagus, zucchini rounds,onion rings, cauliflower,cardone,mushrooms, artichoke hearts, I put tempura on halved Italian long green chiles and oven fry them after topping with pepper jack cheese..

Nice topic

No ... who are they? When I went to college, there was a local bar that would put them out on their "All things fried" freebie night. Yum Yum ... nice and salty / vineagary with a cold beer.
