Onion Rings

Like many children, Zeal is NOT an onion eater.

HOWEVER, we just made these little beauties and now he has professed to like them.

The secret: buttermilk. I rarely cook with it, mostly because of my dairy sensitivity, but I heard it made a good onion ring and since we were loaded with onions last week, we went for it.

* A vegan alternative to buttermilk is soured soy or rice milk. For each cup of buttermilk, use 1 cup soymilk plus 1 tablespoon of vinegar.

Soak the onions in buttermilk for about a half an hour.

Dredge in flour and fry in just a bit of olive oil.

Good organic, sweet onions make these irresistible!
