Vegan Baked Onion Rings -Gluten Free and Allergy Friendly
Happy National Onion Rings Day!!!
Onion rings are a guilty pleasure of mine. When I used to dine out, if they had the option of replacing a side with onion rings I would (or even as an appetizer)! Having them with ketchup or ranch dressing was a simply divine crunchy explosion on your taste buds amazingness.
Of course, they were nowhere near healthy but that’s to be expected when dining out. Now that I am currently working on being “healthier”, I found a good base recipe on making baked onion rings but seems like I lost the link. I’ll add it once I can find it again.
The ingredients I used were mainly allergy friendly but you can easily replace the ingredients with your favorite brands.
- Sweet onion sliced approx 1/4″ thick
- 1 cup Flour of choice + 2 TBS
- Nondairy milk of choice
- 1 TBS of apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup Breadcrumbs (I use Full Circle Organic Gluten Free)
- A dash of salt & pepper
- Oil or nonstick spray
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
- Using a bowl, add 1 cup of nondairy milk of choice, 1 TBS of apple cider vinegar, 2 TBS of flour, and salt and pepper. Whisk to mix together then let sit for 10 minutes to thicken.
- While your waiting for your milk to thicken, place about 1 cup of flour on a plate or bowl and your breadcrumbs on another plate or bowl. For the breadcrumbs, feel free to add spices like salt and pepper or parsley and mix together.
- Take your sweet onion and slice it about 1/4″ thick. Separate the rings and use the larger rings.
- Coat each ring in flour before dipping into your nondairy “buttermilk” and then coating it with breadcrumbs.
- Set each ring as they are finished on a nonstick baking sheet (or foil-covered too and sprayed with nonstick oil).
- Once done, place in the oven for about 20 minutes flipping over halfway. You can spray each side with oil to make it extra crispy while cooking.
- Once the rings are cooked, enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce!
