    Need nutless batter recipe

    Primal Fuel
    I am going to fry some okra, zucchini, and green tomatoes for dinner tomorrow. So, I want to make a primal batter, but my grandpa's girlfriend is very allergic to all nuts. What are my options? I want to make beer batter (not 100% primal, I know, but neither is beer can chicken )....but I could settle for covering in oil and coating in spices. If that's my only option, then what are some good (preferably spicy) rubs for frying veggies?

    Thanks for the (presumed) help!

    I usually use a mix of tapioca starch and coconut flour.

    1 egg, 1/2 cup beer, 1/2 cup tapioca starch, 2tbsp-1/4 cup coconut flour, seasonings. Obviously adjust wet/dry to your own requirements

    I posted some onion rings I made this way in the food porn thread. I consider this in my 20%, good luck!

    Would rice flour work? I don't know if I've seen anyone here mention it but rice is supposed to be pretty much a neutral, right?

    Could you grind up pork scratchings and mix that with tapioca starch or arrowroot?

    If you don't mind making concessions on your end for the meal you could use cornmeal

    Coconut isn't a nut, it's in the palm family. But ya, all tapioca starch or porkrinds/cornmeal would work.

    I know coconut isn't a nut, but she has a lot of allergies haha. I may check out rice flour or tapioca starch. I'm not really familiar with either. If she isn't allergic to ground flax meal, I may do that. Thanks everyone!

    White rice flour, eggs, water, salt and pepper. It doesn't get much easier. You may want to toss in a batch of baking powder, too. Coconut flour makes a gross batter for frying. Ask me how I know. White rice flour is available at most major grocery stores for $3/lb or less.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Tapioca starch is very light, similar to a tempura batter. That's why I usually mix it with other things. You could use straight tapioca starch but increase your seasonings a bit The only thing with flax is that sometimes the taste alters when fried at high temps, if you mixed it with others you might be ok

    Good luck!
