paleo onion rings


A long time ago, in a galaxy far away I wrote a cookbook called Paleo Eats.  Paleo Eats: 111 Comforting Gluten-Free, Grain-Free and Dairy-Free Recipes for the Foodie in You

I consider Paleo Eats my second child and with my third one on the way (Baby Bubba), I wanted to do something special and share one of my favorite recipes from the book on my blog.

I love cooking.  I love pushing the button and thinking outside the box and it was a MUST for me to create a paleo onion ring recipe, not just just any recipe mind you, but a recipe that was so similar to Beer Battered Onion Rings that no one would know the difference.

I’m a lady who believes that Genius works through me and it’s a blessing that the idea to use Kombucha came through loud and clear the day I decided to make these paleo onion rings.

  1. Peel and slice the onion into ¼-inch-thick rounds. Separate the onion rings. Place them in a bowl and toss and coat them with the ¼ cup of tapioca flour until evenly coated. Set aside.
  2. In a second large bowl, combine the tapioca flour, almond flour, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper and mix well with spoon.
  3. Pour in the kombucha and blend until you have a thick batter.
  4. Let this sit for 10 minutes.
  5. In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, heat the oil to 350 degrees.
  6. Take one of the onion rings and dip it in the batter until well coated and then gently drop it into the hot oil. Repeat with 3 or 4 additional rings, without overcrowding the pan. Let the rings fry until golden brown on one side, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and repeat.
  7. Using tongs, remove the onion rings and set on a paper towel to drain. Repeat with the rest of the onion rings and batter until all are fried.

    Hi, I love all your recipes. I would like to know what do you mean by Batter please? What kind of batter? Thanks 🙂

      The consistency of the batter is almost like a pancake batter.
