When you go out for dinner, what is your favourite side to order? For me, it’s onion rings. They are an elite side order – am I right or am I right people?
Onion rings are that one food that I like to treat myself with every now and then. You can always guarantee that the onion rings at restaurants are going to taste absolutely delicious.
But, one thing I’ve always wanted to do is give making them at home a go. For some strange reason I’ve always put onion rings down as being difficult to make. Well, that was until I came across this recipe on Pinterest, it instantly changed my mindset and I of course, had to give them a go.
One thing I absolutely love about this recipe is that it’s keto friendly and lower in calories than the average onion ring you’d buy in a restaurant. Plus, this recipe makes a decent amount, which is always an added bonus!
This is quick, it is easy and the outcome is absolutely delicious. Who needs to go to a restaurant to enjoy onion rings when you can make them from the comfort of your own home? I’ve made these multiple times now and they never disappoint.
So if you’d like to make these onion rings yourself, the recipe is below:
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 20-25 Minutes
Overall: 45 Minutes
Ingredients You Need:
- 1 Large Onion
- 60g Of Almond Flour
- 44g Of Parmesan Cheese
- 1/2tbsp Of Baking Powder
- 1tsp Of Paprika
- 2 Eggs, Beaten
- Low Calorie Cooking Spray
- Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients, line two baking trays with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 180C / 160C Fan / Gas Mark 4.
- Secondly, cut your onion into rings.
- In a large bowl combine the 60g of almond flour, 44g of parmesan cheese, 1/2tbsp of baking powder and the 1tsp of paprika.
- Next, in a medium sized bowl, beat the two eggs together.
- Now, dip the onion ring into the beaten eggs making sure the onion is completely coated in egg on both sides.
- Then dip the onion into the almond flour mixture, pressing it down to make sure its coated on both sides.
- (TIP: if you don’t think the onion rings are coated properly, repeat the last two steps above).
- Once the onion rings are coated, place the onion rings onto a baking tray, making sure there’s space between each onion ring.
- Spray the onion rings with low calorie cooking spray.
- Place the onion rings into the oven for 10 minutes. Once the 10 minutes is up, take out the oven, flip the onion rings over and spray again with cooking spray. Place the onion rings back into the oven for another 10-12 minutes.
- Finally, when the onions are golden brown and looking crispy, take out the oven and serve.
That’s your Onion Rings prepared, baked and ready to demolish.
Do you know what? I’d go as far as saying that I’d happily take these over restaurant onion rings any day. I know, BIG claim but these really are delicious. You should all know by now I wouldn’t share something if I didn’t think it was worthwhile!
