Onions are ABUNDANT in the garden this year.
Which is nice, because last year, that was not the case. I am a big fan of onion rings. I probably like them more than french fries (yep...I'm one of those people...) Making onion rings is surprisingly easy, and integrating cricket powder into your favorite batter is even easier!
Cricket Powder Onion Rings
One Large Onion (garden-fresh, if possible)
1 cup garbanzo bean flour (you can sub whatever kind of flour you would like)
1/4 cup 100% Cricket Powder
1 tsp salt
pinch of ground pepper
1 cup Milk (whatever kind you like)
Oil, if frying
1. Slice onion to desired ring thickness and separate rings
2. Mix flour, cricket powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
3. Toss rings in the flour mixture, tap off excess and set aside.
4. Mix egg and milk in a bowl.
5. Dip rings in egg/milk mixture and toss in flour mixture. Set aside on a plate.
6. If frying, heat oil to 365 degrees. If baking, heat oven to 425 and lay onion rings on greased baking sheet.
7. Fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown or bake for 10 min, flip, and bake for 5 more min.
8. Serve immediately
I only smoked the house out once in the making of this recipe...Oops!
