FRITTO MISTO WITH LEMON ROSEMARY DIP

FRITTO MISTO WITH LEMON ROSEMARY DIP

This is such a beautiful dish, and very flavourful. Veggies fried in rosemary oil with a lemon rosemary mayo is a great dish to enjoy in the summer. You can use all sorts of vegetables, but I really like the zucchinis and cauliflower. The chickpeas get crispy but are still soft in the middle. And they all are lightly flavoured and scented with rosemary.
