Better than Sonics Onion Rings!

What you need: 

1/4 cup flour (I like whole wheat)
salt, to taste
pinch baking powder
1/8 pound silken firm tofu
1/4 cup nondairy milk (I use soy)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 medium onion, sliced to rings
oil, for frying

What you do: 

1. Mix flour, salt, and baking powder together in a small bowl.
2. Throw the tofu, milk and lemon juice in a blender and blend until all the tofu is blended. Combine wet to dry and stir; you may need to add a bit more milk.
3. Heat oil in a frying pan. Dip each ring into the batter and fry them all till they are golden brown.
4. Drain on paper towels, throw on some salt and serve with a friend or alone (you'll probably wanna gobble them all up yourself, but I shared with my mom!)
These may become an addiction!

I loved these!  I haven't had onion rings in forever and I have never tried to make them before... 

I loved this batter and I am already thinking of a million other thing to use it for....yum!

Also, I doubled the batter and made it really thick.  I think that its important to have the oil nice and hot before you toss them in and stir gently to prevent sticking.

These are going to take some practice,  but we enjoyed them very much.

I made these again today, and they were even better! This is a fabulous recipe. I added lots of cayenne pepper to the batter..and it added a nice spice. I suggest that everyone try this! : )

Wow, these were yummy.  We don't have Sonic here so I have no comparison.  I did not tell my husband that they had tofu in them until after b/c he has a fear of tofu but he loved them-so did my 10 year old.  Since I have never made onion rings before it took me a bit to get the timing right.  Just put enough batter to lightly coat onions and give them lots of room in the pan.  I put about a 1/4 inch of oil but they probably would have cooked better in less.  This recipe only made about 3/4 of a medium sized onion for me.  May need to double it next time.  I will absolutely make these again.  Oh, I can find Firm Tofu and Silken Tofu but is silken firm tofu something different altogether? I used silken and it worked.

Also, I added lots of pepper, a little garlic powder, my tofu was not silken (but firm), and I added lime juice instead of lemon. They were fabulous!

These are so good! I was surprised at how good..definitely at least AS GOOD as Sonic's..plus a little bit healthier..and w/o all that gross fryer oil. It is a little bit off putting to fry them..but it's ok once in a while, right?! Love these..I'll keep this batter in mind! Thanks. :)>>>

I find if I coat the onions in a batter of some sorts - some soy milk/soda water (whatever works for you), flour, salt and spices and then dip them in panko crumbs, then the onion rings stay super crispy even when they've cooled off.  They end up being delicious and they don't stick together in the pan!  I'll post my recipe on here because you can use it for onion rings, or zucchini or any delicious veggies!
