Onion Ring Ranchocado Recipe

By Veegs



1 large avocado, pitted, peeled, and cut into chunks

¼ cup (56 g) vegan mayonnaise

1 tablespoon (15 ml) apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon (10 g) chopped shallot

1 tablespoon (4 g) minced fresh parsley

2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme

2 teaspoons minced fresh dill

Salt and pepper, to taste


1 cup (235 ml) vegan beer, chilled

2 teaspoons sriracha

1 teaspoon liquid smoke

1 teaspoon yellow mustard

½ teaspoon fine sea salt

Pinch of black pepper

1 cup (125 g) all-purpose flour, plus more if needed

Canola oil, for cooking

12 large (¾ inch, or 2 cm wide) sweet onion rings, separated


2 crusty ciabatta rolls, cut in half and toasted 2 cups (144 g) shredded lettuce

8 slices tomato

Sriracha, for serving


1TO MAKE THE SPREAD: In a blender, combine the avocado, mayonnaise, vinegar, and shallot. Blend until smooth. Stir in the herbs. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

2TO MAKE THE ONION RINGS: Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C, or gas mark 2). In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the beer, sriracha, liquid smoke, mustard, salt, and pepper.

3Add the flour and whisk until smooth. The mixture should coat the onion ring well without dripping off. Add 1 tablespoon (8 g) flour or (15 ml) beer if needed.

4Line a baking sheet with paper towels. Heat 1-inch (2.5 cm) canola oil in a heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat.

5Working in batches, dip the onion rings into the mixture, then slide into the hot oil. The oil should sizzle but not ripple. Adjust the heat if necessary. Be careful not to crowd the pan or the oil temperature will drop.

6Cook the onion rings for 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on the baking sheet. Keep warm in the oven until all are cooked. Repeat with the remaining onion rings.

7TO ASSEMBLE THE SANDWICHES: Spread the sauce on the inside of the rolls. Layer on the lettuce, then the tomatoes. Top with the onion rings. Pass the extra sriracha at the table.

8Do not hesitate to enjoy these onion rings alongside any sandwich.
