These gluten free onion rings are another great recipe from Gluten Free Chef Rob, Robert Landolphi’s Gluten Free Everyday cookbook. I cannot explain well enough how crunchy and flavorful they turn out and what a nice thick batter this makes. They’re a must try for any onion ring lover, gluten free or not!
I only used one onion, but he suggests two. It made about 2 – 3 servings, as a side. I think one is perfect for the amount of batter. However, I may have used more batter than he intended.
I love deep-fried batter! At first, when I made them, the spices in the flour mixture were overwhelming, so I only added half the suggested amounts. But after tasting them they were not spicy at all. However, the dipping sauce was super hot and spicy. So, I added the rest of the missing spices, as my husband doesn’t care for sour cream dips, and now it’s just perfect! I should have known. Rob’s so spot-on with his recipes.
I wish I would have known back when I created my own gluten free onion rings recipe that egg yolk makes things brown. I would have definitely added only egg yolks instead an entire egg as egg white softens batters. Rob is a real chef and knows his gluten free cooking, for sure! To listen to my interview with Chef Rob see “Carla’s Cookings” on Blog TalkRadio.
Any fan of beer-battered onion rings will love this recipe. I always use a hearty gluten-free beer from Bard’s Tale Beer called Dragon’s Gold.
UPDATE: I now use a sorghum beer, Redbridge.
*Carla’s Note: Gluten-free beer may contain allergens such as corn or soy. Read labels carefully and check out the Gluten Free Beer list.
