Gluten-Free French Onion Rings


2  Large Onions, peeled and sliced in rings

Enough Milk for soaking onions (dairy or dairy-free)

1 1/2 tsp. Salt

1/8 tsp. White Pepper

Gluten-Free Flour Blend (I used 1/2 cup Expandex Modified Tapioca Starch, 1/2 cup Sweet Rice Flour, 1/2 cup Soy or Garbanzo Bean Flour)

Oil for Frying


  • Measure out your flours, salt and pepper in a bowl, use a whisk to incorporate all the dry ingredients.
  • Meanwhile, put the sliced onion rings in a bowl and cover in milk, let soak while you prepare everything else.
  • I put about an inch or so of oil in a dutch oven and allowed it to get hot.  You will know if the oil is ready by flicking a few drops of water into the oil and if it sizzles, it's ready.
  • I put a few of the pre-soaked onion rings (allow excess milk to drain off) into the bowl with the flour mixture.  Stir to coat
  • Place onions in the hot oil, a few at a time and allow to cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Remove, drain and add extra salt if you want.
  • Repeat until all of the onions have been cooked.
