Baked Onion Rings Recipe

Onion rings | danceofstoves.com
I have never liked onion rings, and the truth is that I do not understand why, with how rich they are! 

In addition, these rings are baked, instead of fried, so they are lighter, healthier and we can eat them without fear. 

They are also vegan, gluten-free, and so crunchy and tasty that you won't be able to resist.

To accompany them, we have chosen ketchup, but you can also eat them with barbecue sauce, vegan (or vegan mayonnaise) or with any sauce that you like. 

We have many recipes on the blog in case you run out of ideas or if you want to try something new.

They are an ideal aperitif for any celebration; although it is unnecessary to celebrate anything to eat them, they are so delicious that they are always in the mood. 

Since they are not fried and do not contain eggs or dairy, they are suitable for everyone. 

They are healthier than traditional onion rings, so we can indulge ourselves more often without fear of gaining weight.

This is my first time cooking onion rings, and I didn't know they were so easy to prepare. 

You have to peel the onion, cut it into slices, prepare the batter by mixing all the ingredients and batter the rings

You can eat them fried or baked, although the second option has fewer calories and is healthier.

We have used water and chickpea flour for the batter, although you can also use some vegetable milk or vegetable broth, and you can use another type of flour without problems. 

You can use the spices you like the most of the ones you have on hand; there are infinite combinations. 

They are all delicious; try different options until you find your favourite, also, so you do not get tired of its flavour because you are eating a different recipe each time.

The baking time can vary depending on each oven; in mine, for example, if you leave the rings for 20 minutes, they are cooked but softer, and if you go them for 25, they are very crispy.

They may take more or less time to cook in your oven, and you also have to consider the texture you are looking for, that is, if you want them very crunchy or softer.

This recipe is hot (at least for my taste), so if you don't like spicy flavours, you can eliminate the cayenne powder or add less. 

Another option is to use hot paprika instead of sweet paprika; this way, it gives it a spicy touch, but it will have a less intense flavour than if you use cayenne.

One of the ingredients that we have used to coat our onion rings is our vegan Parmesan cheese

It is effortless to prepare, and you only need four ingredients to make it. 

Anyway, if you don't like it or can't find the ingredients, you can use brewer's yeast or nutritional yeast (brewer's yeast has gluten, so be careful if you're celiac) or add more garlic powder or add nothing. 

Sure they are also delicious because these onion rings always turn out well and are always delicious.
