These Baked Onion Rings are so light, crunchy and delicious. They are low in fat, gluten-free and vegan made with the perfect blend of spices!
I love to make these Baked Onion Rings, they remind me of fast food without all that grease. Believe me, these were gone as soon as I served them! They are easy to prepare and the spice blend is just perfect. You will just have to make a batch to understand what I’m talking about. You won’t be disappointed at all.
I first mixed unsweetened almond milk with tapioca starch, this mixture will make sure that the dry mixture will stick to the onion rings. I used a blend of cornmeal and brown rice flour mixed with a spice blend for a crisp coating, You can substitute with gluten-free panko crumbs. Obviously, you won’t get exactly the same crisp finish as deep fried.
Thick slices of onions are separated into rings, dipped in the almond milk mixture, then into the gluten-free breading mix and then transferred to a prepared baking sheet. I then sprayed the onion rings with an oil spray and then bake to perfection. I suggest that you eat them immediately but seriously there won’t be any leftovers. Save the remaining breading mix in your refrigerator for making a second batch. They taste delicious served with ketchup!
