These fried onion rings are so crunchy and delicious. Try it with Nonnie’s SCD Ketchup (p.353) or Tartar Sauce (p.359)!


2 egg whites, beaten stiff
½ cup (120 mL) water
1 egg
1 tablespoon (15 mL ) sunflower oil
¾ cup (84 g) almond flour
1 teaspoon salt
1-1½ yellow or white onions, peeled
oil for frying


1. Combine the egg whites, water, and whole egg together with whisk in a mixing bowl
2. Add all other ingredients except the onions and oil
3. Mix well and set this batter aside
4. In the meanwhile, slice onions into rounds to a thickness you prefer and separate them into individual rings
5. Fill a shallow pan with oil until its deep enough for frying the rings
6. Set the burner on medium-high and allow the oil to heat up–sprinkle a few water droplets into the pan – the oil should sizzle when ready
7. Dredge the onion rings in the prepared batter, then drop them into the oiled pan and allow them to fry for a few minutes until batter is crisp and onion cooked through
8. It should be golden-brown in color – do not over-cook batter as it will burn


35-40 rings
