So E has a crush on onion rings. More like a devotion rather than a crush. But that just doesn’t sound very manly. So, I just picked up a fresh batch of organic coconut flour, and almond flour… and I’ve been dying to bust into them, I just haven’t had any time! But, having just finished the last paper of my undergrad degree 🙂 today was the PERFECT day!
In keeping with the restaurant meal makeover theme, I thought why not try and make some onion rings for dinner. Conventional onion rings fried in god knows what, and battered in who knows what aren’t so healthy.. but really when you do it yourself, it’s possible to make any thing healthier!
So, since we loved the cracked peppercorn burger so much, I thought why not make a ringer burger? Yep, that’s what’s on the menu tonight!
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1 medium onion
- 1 egg
- sea salt, to taste
- 2-3 T coconut oil; or oil of your choice
- Preheat non-stick skillet over medium heat.
- Wash and peel the onion. Slice it into desired number of rings.
- Crack egg and scramble in a flat dish.
- In another flat dish combine coconut and almond flour and salt.
- Add coconut oil to the skillet and let melt.
- Dip onion rings into egg, then into flour mixture. Repeat this as many times as you would like to mimic the “beer battered effect”. I did it twice to each onion ring.
- Place rings onto pan. Once browned flip over and fry on the other side. This will take approximately 5-10 minutes. As onion rings are done, place them on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
- Repeat step 7, until all of the onion rings are done.
- ENJOY! These taste divine with vinegar, or on top of a burger!
