Brown Rice Veggie Burgers with Onion Rings
Labor Day usually means cooking outside, but someone flipped a switch to "Fall" this weekend -- so we decided to make our kids (new) favorite burgers and topped them onion rings... because apparently, that's a thing* these days.
Here's the recipe for the onion rings...
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup rice flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tbs. cornstarch
1 cup of water (plus additional water to adjust batter)
1 tsp. smoked paprika
2 tsp. salt
Canola oil for frying
Sift the flour, baking powder and cornstarch into a medium bowl. Stir in 1 cup of water and add the salt and smoked paprika. Allow to rest for a few minutes. Additional water will probably be needed to adjust thickness -- you're looking for a pancake batter consistency.
In a wok or large pot, heat the oil to 375F, dredge the onions in the batter and carefully drop in the oil.
Cook until until golden brown (about 3-5 minutes).
