I have pretty mixed feelings about onion rings. Whilst I will agree that they are tasty.. traditional onion rings, in all their battered, fried glory.. just seem pretty.. gross.
Heavily processed, lacking in nutritional value, and high in fat..
If you make them yourself they will obviously be better.. but what if you could make them healthy?
High in protein, fibre, magnesium, iron, calcium, with vitamin B-6, and vitamin C, these certainly pack more of a nutritional punch than your average onion ring!
These are incredibly easy to make, and they make quite a few! I popped a big batch in my dehydrator to tick away overnight – and I also had enough mix to make a batch to cook in the oven! I’m extremely happy to say that both ways work amazingly well.
These are light, crunchy, and extremely tasty. Thanks to the nuts in their coating, they are also rather filling! So be warned against wolfing them all down in one go!
The raw version tasted just as crunchy and tasty as the cooked ones. The only difference that I noticed, is the raw ones have a slightly stronger onion “hit” than the cooked version. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
I served these up with a raw tomato sauce (which takes seconds to prepare) and these made for a fantastic side to dinner.
Try them, and let me know what you think!
