Baked Onion Rings - Thug Kitchen

You need more onion rings in your life but nobody likes being assaulted by hot oil popping outta the skillet. Simple and healthier solution, bake those bitches.

1 large red onion, cut into ½-inch-thick slices
⅔ cup oat flour
¼ cup chickpea flour
1 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
⅓ cup cornmeal
¾ cup 100% whole-grain salt-free bread crumbs
⅓ cup nutritional yeast (nooch)
2 tablespoons your favorite salt-free spice blend
1 teaspoon smoked paprika

Warm up your oven to 425ºF. Line a large baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper and set it aside. Grab a couple shallow bowls, we're making a wet mix and a dry mix. In the first bowl, combine the oat flour, chickpea flour, almond milk, and vinegar, stirring to blend well to make a kind of batter. In the other shallow bowl, combine the cornmeal, bread crumbs, nutritional yeast, and spices until they’re all mixed up. Line up the cut onion rings, batter, and breading mixture, and the prepared baking sheet all in a row so that your don’t make a damn mess all over your counters. Dip a raw onion ring into the batter, coating it all over. Transfer the onion ring to the breading, tossing to coat it all over.

Place the coated onion ring on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with the remaining ingredients, arranging the rings in a single layer. Use a second baking sheet if things are getting too crowded. You should have enough batter and breading for about twenty onion rings. Bake for 10 minutes, flip the onion rings over on the baking sheet and then bake for about 10 minutes longer, or until crisp and nicely browned. Serve hot with ketchup, bbq, special sauce, whatever you're into.

BOSH! Burger

In case you haven’t been outside lately, summer is here with a goddamn vengeance. Which means it’s burger season. But don’t fire up that rusty ass grill, you’re probably outta propane anyways.


Buffalo Caesar Wrap

Y’all ever fuck around and wrap some food with twine? Can’t explain why but somehow it just makes food taste better. Someone fund the science behind this please.
