Gluten-Free Onion Strings
- 1 large onion, peeled and thinly sliced about 1/4 inch
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup white rice flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two large baking trays with parchment paper. Carefully use sharp knife or mandolin to slice onion into 1/4 inch slices.
- In a medium bowl, combine almond milk and apple cider vinegar. In another medium bowl, add white rice flour, salt, smoked paprika, and garlic powder, whisking to combine.
- In batches, drop onion slices into almond milk mixture to coat. Transfer onions to the rice flour mixture and dredge to coat. Give onions a slight shake to remove extra coating, then place the into an even layer onto baking sheet. To save space, you can place smaller strings inside of bigger strings.
- Place baking sheets in oven and bake for 18-20 minutes. Thinner strings will bake up more quickly, so keep a close eye on them in the last few minutes.
- Allow gluten-free onion strings to cool for 1-2 minutes before transferring them to a serving plate. Serve with ketchup or other favorite dipping sauce.
