In a plastic freezer bag put in a handful of flour and salt and pepper.

Greek Tzatziki DipPut the vegetable slices, a few at a time in the bag. Allowing air to get in the bag, twist the top of the bag and holding it tight, shake the bag so that the vegetables are covered with the flour. Repeat until all the vegetables are coated.

Using a good oil, shallow fry until golden brown.

When ready, drain well, place on absorbent paper to absorb any excess oil then place on a plate. Sprinkle plenty of grated cheese over them. Serve.
