Spicy Baked Onion Rings

One food I’ve been absolutely craving is onion rings. But it’s one of those snacks that I can never figure out if it’s vegan or not. Eggs in it? Milk? Who knows, in most restaurants, so my instinct is to just steer clear. Unless of course, I make them myself.

A recipe from Oh She Glows popped up on Pinterest and Arikka and I both instantly repinned at the same time. It was love at first sight.

I changed it a little, since I like my onion rings with a kick to it, and I have to admit-I ate the whole batch for dinner tonight.

1 large yellow onion, sliced into 1/2 inch rounds

1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs

2/3 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup vegetable broth

1/2 cup cornmeal

1/3 cup coconut milk

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp dried marjoram

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp white pepper

1/4 tsp dry mustard

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp coconut oil

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  • Stir together the vegetable broth, flour, coconut milk and cornstarch
  • In another bowl, mix together ingredients EXCEPT onions and coconut oil
  • Grease a baking sheet with coconut oil
  • Dip onion slices one at a time, into flour and broth mix and then dredge through dry mix
  • Layer each onion onto sheet and bake for 16 minutes, turning halfway through
