quinoaonionrings

What you will need:
3/4 cup of flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups quinoa
1 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 large onion

Steps to yummy goodness:
1. Preheat oven to 425F, then line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Slice onion into rings, approximately 3/4-inch thick.
3. In a bowl, whisk together batter ingredients: flour, cornstarch, milk, salt and water.
4. In another bowl, whisk together coating ingredients: quinoa, panko and spices.
5. Using your hands, dip an onion ring into batter, making sure to coat all sides.
6. Transfer ring to coating mixture and sprinkle all over
7. Place onion rings on baking sheet and repeat for the remaining rings.
8. Bake for 18 minutes, flipping once after 10 minutes. Feel free to broil them for a minute or two at the end to crisp.

.:Side Note:.
I find that normal sweet onion works best for these onion rings but you can easily use a large yellow onion.

I use normal all purpose white flour, but whole grain flour works well in this recipe as well.

This recipe can easily be dairy free just substitute soy milk in place of normal milk this recipe called for.
