Coconut Onion Rings – Veganized

Well I promised you would see the result of my attempt to veganize The Hungry Elephant‘s Coconut Onion Ring recipe.

They turned out pretty darn good!

Now, I wil probably guess they weren’t as crispy as hers.  I got the coating to be crispy but the overall ring was a little wiggly.

Here’s how we did it if you want to give it a go!

Recipe:

  • A large spanish onion – cut into rings
  • 1 cup of unsweetened, plain Almond Milk
  • 1 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup of brown rice flour
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil

Method:

  1. Cut your onion into rings and separate.
  2. Mix your almond milk and olive oil and whisk to combine.
  3. Mix your coconut and rice flour and whisk together.
  4. Take the rings, one at a time and submerge into the almond milk mixture, then into the coconut mixture.  Now, I did a few just one pass through this sequence, but I found the ones that turned out the best had another go around, so do this twice and I think you’ll find they coat a little better.
  5. Heat up some oil in a fry pan.
  6. Once you have coated a few, and the oil is hot, put the rings in single layer in your pan just long enough to brown a bit on each side.
  7. Then put them onto a cookie sheet where you slide them into the oven on Broil.
  8. I broiled them and they really browned up nicely with a crispy coating on them.

We had fun eating them too!

Thanks again to The Hungry Elephant for the inspiration!
