Beer Batter Onion Rings (gluten-free & Rice Free)

Recommended Posts

Guest AlabamaGirl

My husband and I were frying chicken wings and making Jerk sauce last night, and we got a little crazy in the kitchen ;) and decided to try and make gluten-free onion rings. I went about it without high hopes in their success, but a lovely surprise awaited me with the first bite. Hope you love them as much as we did!!! They were unbelievably good and you'd never know they were gluten-free.

Beer Batter Onion Rings

1 cup Bob's Red Mill gluten-free Pancake Mix

1/4 cup coconut flour

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp ground black pepper

2 tsp sea salt, plus additional salt for dusting

1 1/4 - 2 cups gluten-free Beer (we used Redbridge, though I've heard you can even use Club Soda or Perrier)

Vidalia onions, sliced & separated into rings

Oil of choice for frying

Mix together dry ingredients, then add 1 1/4 + cups of beer to form a nice batter. Let rest for 30 minutes to one hour, adding additional beer as needed to maintain desired consistency. (Batter should be thick enough to hold easily to onion.) Heat oil to 375 degrees F. Dip onion rings into batter and drop into fry basket. Fry until golden brown. Dust with sea salt and serve.

Someone from my celiac disease Support Group gave me a bottle of Redbridge beer, but I'm not a beer drinker. I plan to try your recipe, because I LOVE onion rings! Thanks for the recipe.

A rice flour might work, but I can't eat rice so I didn't try it. The coconut flour really helps the batter thicken, so arrowroot might work. Someone else who is a better cook than me might have some advice.

For Christmas Eve we have hors d'oeuvres night. I made gluten-free battered onion rings several weeks beforehand. I coated them with the batter and placed them on a cookie sheet covered with plastic wrap. I froze them on the cookie sheet. This way they freeze as individual pieces. Once frozen, I put them in a container. I deep fried them up on Christmas Eve and they were great!
