This recipe comes from the amazing vegan blog Oh She Glows. These onion rings turned out pretty yummy, which says something because I am not an onion lover. In fact, I never use onions in my cooking, but who can resist an onion ring?
To begin preheat your oven to 425°c and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Take 1 sweet white onion and slice it into 1/4 inch rings. Half an onion makes enough for four people as a snack. A full onion would make a party-sized snack platter.
In a wide bowl combine 2/3 of a cup of flour, 2/3 of a cup plus 1 tbsp. vegetable broth, and 2 tbsp. cornstarch.
In a second, larger bowl combine 1/2 a cup of cornmeal, 1 cup of panko breadcrumbs, 3/4 tsp. sea salt, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp. Italian herb mix and 1 tsp. dill.
Dip your onions rings (one at a time) into the wet batter and then into your breadcrumb mixture and place them onto your baking sheet. To do the breading I like to use two sets of chopsticks. I place one in the dry and one in the wet and then basically never get my hands dirty.
Continue breading until all your onion rings are coated (you will have leftover mixture). Bake for 20 minutes flipping the onions over at the half way point.
Who ate it?
Husband- Yes! He is not one to resist an onion ring.
Son #1+#2- No. This was a real failure as they would not even try them. Apparently, some people can resist onion rings!
