Last night I was sifting through the fridge, trying to find something different to eat. I pigged out on this stew, but by dinner time, I was-a-hungry!
All of a sudden, it hit me.
I WANTED ONION RINGS.
But, they’re fried, take so long to make, blah blah blah… UH WRONG!!
They were so easy and from start to finish I think took about 30 minutes.
Here we go!
* 1 onion – sliced thick
* panko flakes
* your favourite seasonings – paprika, pepper, salt, garlic powder, basil, curry powder – what ever tickles your fancy!
* almond milk
* flour – any kind you like, I used kamut
* BBQ sauce
* grainy mustard – YUM, Addicted to this stuff!!!
Okay, here’s how easy it is:
** pre-heat oven to 450F
** slice onion, break slices apart so you have individual rings
** mix almond milk and flour together to form a thick pancake-like consistency, add any and as much spice as you like
** put about 1 cup panko into a separate shallow bowl
** take onion slices, dip in milk/flour batter, then put in panko flakes, tap off excess and place on lined baking sheet
** place in oven for 15 mins, then lower the heat to 350F for another 15 mins. If you want your onion rings to be a bit softer, leave in for 20-25 mins longer, checking often, flipping them to make sure they do not burn.
This recipe does not call for any oil, which is fantastic as you have yummy crunchy rings that are just as satisfying as the other fat laden ones you’d get at a fast food joint!
Serve with your own homemade ketchup, your fave bbq sauce and even grainy mustard… it just makes sense!
Enjoy foodie friends!
