  • 1 c. superfine rice flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 egg yolks (or 1 Tbs. flax meal mixed into 3 Tbs. warm water)
  • 3/4 c. gluten free beer (I used Omission Pale Ale)
  • 1 large sweet onion
  • oil for frying


I found this recipe on an index card at the Gluten Free Expo in Chicago. The original recipe calls for chili powder, cumin, and cayenne, but I like good old classic onion rings best! Modify seasonings to your personal preference.


1. Slice onions into rings.
2. In a bowl, mix rice flour, salt, egg yolks or flax meal mixture, and gluten free beer. Whisk & set aside. The batter should be thick, but still liquid.
3. Heat fryer oil to 360.
4. Once oil is hot, dip onions in batter, allowing excess to drip off. Add to fryer in small batches and fly until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes.
5. Remove from fryer and place on cookie sheet lined with paper towels.
6. Eat with the dipping sauce of your choice!
