Vegan Onion Rings

  Onions, are amazing. They are a stable in many ingredients and have been used by native Americans and ancient Chinese for centuries as a medicine. Onions are known to decrease bronchial congestion and spasms. Onions are a rich source of fructo-oilgosaccharides, which stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria needed to fight of infections.On a cardiovascular scale, the high flavoured content of onions protect against cardiovascular disease by decreasing internal inflammation and lowering blood pressure. Onions are amazing, and my personal favorite way to eat em is as onion rings.

1 large white or yellow onion
2 tablespoons soy creamer
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 cup corn meal
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon agave syrup
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup soda water
1 cup plank bread crumbs

Preheat the oven to 450 F, and gently spray a cooking sheet with oil. 

Slice the onion into half inch slices, and carefully separate into rings. In a large tuber ware container place the onion slices and add the soy creamer. Shake like crazy to cover the onions with the cream. Then gently remove the onions from the container and place aside. 

In the same container add the cornmeal, nutritional yeast, onion powder and mix together. 

In a separate bowl add together the vinegar, agave syrup, 1 tbsp oil, and half of the soda water. Add the dry mix to the wets mix and stir. The batter should be thin, and somewhat the consistency of pancake batter. Add more soda water as you see needed.

In another small bowl add the bread crumbs and 1 tbsp oil. Stir well. 

Carefully dip each onion ring into the batter, and then into the crumbs before placing on the baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden and crispy.
