#14 Onion Rings Stuffed with Kimchi Lentil Spread
About the dish:
A delicious crunchy meal using breadcrumbs from old stale bread - a perfect way to reduce food waste.
To make 15 onion rings. Done in 30 minutes.
- 1 white onion
- Kimchi Lentil Spread (refer to the previous recipe)
- 3 or 4 eggs
- 2 tbsp chickpea oil (from the chickpea can)
- BBQ sauce
- 2 cups bread crumbs (made out of old stale bread)
- 2 cups flour
- Slice the onion mindfully into the rings 2 cm wide.
- Stuff the onion rings with the Kimchi Lentil Spread one by one. Make sure to fill the rings up firmly.
- Carefully place the rings on a tray and freeze for 30 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the bread crumbs, eggs and flour in separate bowls. Whisk the eggs gently.
- Once the rings are frozen, start to batter one by one. Dip them in each bowl, following the order: flour - egg - crumbs. If you want to double batter for extra crunchiness do flour - egg - crumbs - egg - crumbs instead.
- Heat up the oil in a deep saucepan on a medium high heat. Sprinkle some leftover bread crumbs to test, if the oil is hot enough.
- Once ready, sparsely put the rings in and deep fry for 3 minutes. Repeat until all of the rings are fried.
- Place them onto the paper towel or baking sheet to absorb the excess oil.
- Serve with dips of your choice.
