I made aaaall of these for myself. I have a lot of food restrictions and I’ve been craving fast food lately, so this was my solution.
They’re extra brown becausebecause the batter has lots of flax seeds in it. I wonder if flax still has the health benefits iif it’s been fried.
This recipe doesn’t exist on the internet anymore but I kept it in my recipe book. I think it’s a play off of Emeril’s onion rings.
3 cups plant milk
3 tablespoons white vinegar
3/4 cup hot sauce
2 tablespoons “Emeril’s Essence” (that souns so gross. Lol. If you want, they have the mixture info on the net)
3 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 large onions
High heat oil like safflower or canola
3/4 cup tapioca flour
3/4 cup flaxseed meal
1/2 cup arrowroot starch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
Combine plant milk with vinegar, and let sit for 10 minutes to make “buttermilk.”
Combine “buttermilk” with hot sauce, “Emeril’s Essence” and 2 tsp of cayenne. Add onion rings in to coat, then chill in the fridge for an hour.
Preheat the oil in a pan or deep frier to 375 (I did it in my pan on high.)
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, then transfer batter-coated onions into flour mixture. Coat with flour mixture, then fry until light brown.
