hummus with chips

Sriracha Hummus

serves 10

  • 1 15oz can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup sriracha (I suggest Trader Joe’s-no corn syrup)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1/4 cup parsley

onion rings

Baked Onion Rings

serves 8 (about 2-3 onion rings per serving)

  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced into large rounds
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose gluten free flour
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot flour
  • 3/4 cup vegetable both
  • 2 1/2 cups gluten-free cornflakes (I like Nature’s Path Mesa Sunrise)
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a 9×11 baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a food processor, pulse cornflakes until a fine meal forms. (To do this by hand, place in a plastic sandwich bag and crush.) Add in nutritional yeast, salt, garlic powder, and chilli powder, pulse to combine (or mix in a large bowl). Place mixture into a medium-sized shallow bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour and arrowroot flour.
  4. In another medium-sized bowl, add flour mixture to vegetable both, whisking until no lumps remain.
  5. Dip onion rings into broth mixture first, then into cornflake mixture. (A fork makes this process much easier.) Place onto prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake onion rings for 15 minutes, turning once at the halfway point to avoid browning.
  7. Serve with sriracha!
