Low-carb onion rings

Low-carb onion rings

Crispy, crunchy on the outside and perfectly tender on the inside, these low-carb onion rings use the unusual combination of coconut flour, Parmesan cheese and garlic powder for a subtle yet surprisingly complementary marriage of tastes. Just remember to cook them in oil on a low-to-moderate heat so they don't burn.

Ingredients

  • 1 1 large yellow onion sliced into ¼” rounds (vidalia, white or red)large yellow onions sliced into ¼” rounds (vidalia, white or red)
  • ½ cup 125 ml (60 g) coconut flour
  • ½ cup 125 ml parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp salt to taste
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 2 eggeggs
  • 1 cup 225 ml coconut oil, refined if you don't love the coconut flavor
  • salt to taste

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Heat the coconut oil in a large pan, over medium low heat.
  2. While the oil heats, combine the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. In another bowl, whisk the eggs together, until the whites and yolks are blended.
  3. Using a fork, completely coat each onion ring with the beaten egg, and then lift and drop the coated onion ring into the flour mixture. Spoon the flour mix over the entire ring, and gently move the rings to a plate.
  4. Add some rings to the pan, leaving space in between each ring. Fry for about 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown, and then remove to a plate lined with paper towels to cool. Continue this process until done, and then salt to taste.
Ps. This is a new and improved recipe. The old onion ring recipe is replaced with this one. We hope you'll love this one even more!

Tips

Using a fork, versus tongs or a spatula is an easy and gentle way to flip the onion ring without disrupting the coating.

You can fry in tallow, or other fat with a high heat point if you don't like coconut oil.

For a more doughy coating to the onion rings, you can make a batter by mixing the egg and the flour together in a single bowl. The batter may be quite thick and stiff, so thin it with either cream or water to a pancake-like batter consistency. Then dip the onion rings in this, placing gently into the low-moderate heated oil.
