This is an update to my original recipe for onion rings. Easier + baked = fun + healthy!
I like to soak the onions for an hour in just plain water in order to minimize the sharp bite of the onions. It isn’t totally necessary but the onions tenderize and end up being extra delicious.
1 big yellow or white onion
1/4 cup chickpea flour
1/4 cup water
More chickpea flour, about 1/4 cup
1 cup dried breadcrumbs, seasoned with a few shsakes of any or all of the following: garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, dried parsley, nooch, salt
Preheat the oven to 450.
Cut off both ends of the onion and slice into 1/2 inch slices. Separate into rings.
Drop the onions into a bowl and cover with water. Let sit for an hour. Drain and dry off as best as you can.
Set up a breading station:
1. 1/4 cup chickpea flour
2. 2 chickpea flour eggs (2 tablespoons chickpea flour + 6 tablespoons water)
Dip the onion ring into the flour. Shake off any excess flour. Dip the ring into the chickpea flour egg. Shake off any excess and then coat with the breadcrumbs. Place on baking tray and bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until crispy.
Enjoy with homemade ketchup and veggie burgers!
