Since the World Cup games have been on, I’ve been using the Airfryer to make crispy golden onion rings to snack on! You can find the recipe for them below. I am partnering with Philips Canada to show you how I use the TurboStar Digital Airfryer. I’m sure a lot of you know what an airfryer is, but for those who don’t, it is an appliance that uses superheated air to “fry” foods with little or no oil! Because the food is exposed to constant circulating heat, everything cooks evenly without needing to stir it. Currently I love making onion rings with a spicy mayo dipping sauce. The onion rings get so crispy but don’t make you feel as heavy as eating deep fried ones from a restaurant.
I know you guys will love the convenience of using an airfryer, and the bonus is that your “fried” foods will be a lot healthier because you don’t need to use much (or any!) oil to get them crispy and golden brown. I use mine all the time and especially love that unlike an oven, it requires no preheating. It’s great for when we have people over to watch the World Cup games because the basket is large enough to make enough food for everyone. I’m always surprised that even when I pile it full with onion rings or fries, each one gets perfectly crispy and cooked, because of how well the air circulates. It also has akeep warm settingin case you aren’t ready to eat right away.
I also love that it has presets for the most popular dishes. I use the “frozen fries” setting a lot, because I find it is the perfect temperature and length of time for what I make most often.Philips has over 200 recipes in theirapp and free recipe book to give you inspiration and show you all the amazing things you can make in the airfryer.
If you are interested in checking out the Philips TurboStar Digital AirFryer, you can find it at these links:
1 medium onion, cut so it forms rings
1 cup (or more if needed) non-dairy milk such as almond milk
3 tbsp vinegar
1/3 cup corn meal
1/3 cup flour (gluten free flour works too)
1/3 cup bread crumbs
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
salt and pepper
Combine the milk and vinegar in a shallow pan. Add onion rings and soak for 3-4 hours or overnight. You can skip the soaking step if you’re in a rush, but you still need the milk/vinegar mixture to dip the onion rings in before breading them. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Dip the onion rings into the breading mixture until they are coated. Lay in the airfryer basket and spritz with oil. Cook at 375 for 10-15 minutes or until golden on outside and tender inside.
