Veggie Bites




1/3 cup melted margarine or butter, divided
1 egg
2 tsp. water
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups fresh vegetables (broccoli or cauliflower florets, 1/4-inch carrot slices, 1/2-inch zucchini slices, 1/2-inch green or red pepper slices
Grated Parmesan cheese, optional


Heat oven to 450 F. Place 1 tablespoon margarine in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish in oven to melt. Beat egg and water with a fork in a shallow dish. Mix flour and salt in another shallow dish. Dip about 1/4 cup vegetables into egg mixture. Remove 1 piece at a time with a slotted spoon, fork or hands; roll in flour mixture to coat. Place in prepared pan. Repeat with remaining vegetables. Carefully pour remaining margarine over each vegetable piece and into pan. Bake, uncovered, turning once, until vegetables are crisp-tender and coating is golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain. Sprinkle lightly with Parmesan cheese if you like.
