Ingredients

  • 1 large yellow onion thinly sliced into rings then quartered
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil

Instructions

Next to the onion slices, set up your assembly line:

  • Into a medium-size mixing bowl add the unsweetened almond milk.
  • In a second medium-size mixing bowl, stir together the all-purpose flour, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, and ground black pepper.

Soak the onions:

  • Soak onion slices in the almond milk for 5 minutes.

Coat the onions:

  • Add a handful of onions to the flour mixture and toss gently to coat. Remove to a plate and repeat with the remaining onions, working in batches until all onion slices are coated.

Heat the oil:

  • Into a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat, add the vegetable oil.

Fry the onions:

  • When the oil is hot, work again in batches adding a handful of onions each time. Allow onions to cook mostly undisturbed, stirring only as needed until golden brown.
  • Move cooked onions onto a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Season lightly with salt, to taste.
  • Serve warm or room temperature.
