Smokin’ Onion Rings

Super yummy, super crunchy and not a frying pan in sight… these smokin’ onion rings are incredibly simple to make and make for a real treat.

To make 4 portions as a snack or side

2 red or white onions

Wet Mix:
4 tbsp of plant based milk, like oatly
1 tbsp flour of your choice

Dry Mix:

200g or 2 big handfuls of bread cumbs (you can make your own by blitzing up stail bread or crackers in a food processor.
1 tsp smoked paprika
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 lemon cut into wedges

Method:
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 c/ 350 f/ gas mark 4 and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper.
2. Top and tail the onions before peeling them and slicing them widthways into 1/2 cm rings. Pop out the inner rings and set them all aside.
3. Whisk together the plant based milk and flour, set aside.
4. In another bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, paprika, a good pinch of freshly ground black pepper and sea salt.
5. One by one, dip each onion ring into the flour and milk mix then in the bread crumb mix. Place them on the lined baking tray in an even layer (you may need a second tray or cook them in batches).
6. Place the onion rings in the oven to bake for 35-40 minutes or until they are golden and crisp.
7. Transfer to a bowl or board and serve with the wedges of lemon and an extra sprinkle of sea salt.

Make these onion rings your own by adding your favourite herbs or spices to the flour mix like lemon zest & thyme or Garam Masala for an Indian inspired version.
