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!
