Baked Onion Rings

If you’re looking for a great little side dish for a veggie burger or veggie dog, this might be it!

What you’ll need for one large onion…

  • 7tbsp of ground up chickpeas (chickpea flour)
  • 1/4c of water
  • 1tbsp of olive oil
  • a pinch of turmeric & pepper

Grind up two small batches of dry chickpeas in a spice or coffee grinder.

(One of my very favorite kitchen tools is the Cuisinart Spice & Nut Grinder!)

I would take a guess that spelt flour or another grainy flour would work, but we haven’t tried it yet.

With a whisk, mix the ground up chick peas with the rest of the ingredients.

Slice the onion of your choice, red, white or yellow, into thick slices and ‘coat’ each ring with your chickpea mixture.  We found this worked best with a fork and you almost need to ‘scoop’ it onto the onion.  It’s easy, don’t worry.  🙂

Place them onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in a 400 degree oven… fifiteen minutes softens the onion, a few minutes longer crisps up the crust.

These are not really comparable to greasy, deep fried onion rings…………. but they are really good and a whole lot better for you!

Once they come out of the oven, sprinkle a little sea salt over the top and serve with a little homemade ketchup.
