View Full Version : Raw "fried" blooming onion -- Can I make it?
11-09-2008, 12:07 AM
I made my raw "fried" onion rings yesterday and it reminded me of the fried blooming onion I once had at an australian steak house in my SAD days.
I'm quite sure I can make a raw version, my onion is blooming right now in cold water, I'll use the same raw batter as for my onion rings and dehydrate it, if it turns out good, which I don't see why not, I'll add it to my recipe book and take a picture.
I'll keep you updated.
Edit: I've attached a picture of the blooming onion before dehydrating.

Sounds like you could from what you describe - please share your outcome! I've never had the SAD version, but I did indulge in onion rings from time to time - LOL!

There was a recipe on here quite awhile back for onion rings. They looked awsome and the feedback was thumbs up. Could be the recipe may assist in the batter makeup. Maybe do a banana search. Sounds good--please keep us posted on your progress.

I've already made my own fried onion ring batter in my recipe book and it tastes just like fried onion rings, it should work great on my blooming onion too.

I used to love fried onion rings and onion blooms. I wish I had a dehydrator so I could make this!

That looks so cool. Did you know that the blooming onion (fried version) was ranked as the absolute worst appetizer you could eat at a restaurant? The calories are just ridiculous. Last year when my mom wanted to order one I had to argue with her to pick something else instead. I always liked onion rings but not because of the batter, it was because the onions were sweet and soft. :) I would love to try your recipe.

I do miss blooming onions, just not the nauseating feeling I got after eating one when I haven't ate anything fried in a while.
I would love to try a raw version. (:

I wanted to add this recipe to my recipe book but after dehydrating it had shrinked to a not very nice or appetizing looking thing. Maybe if I had dehydrated it less, but anyway it didn't dehydrate too well.

Looks aside, how did it taste?

To be honest I threw it out as it turned to a hard ball of dough, but my onion rings recipe made of the same batter is awesome, you'd swear they're fried and real.

You should have taken a pic so we could see!

are you saying you made up your own batter recipe and you are sharing it only by putting it in a book you are selling?

this is amusing isn't it ?

The onion ring batter recipe is:
½ cup flax seeds, ground
¼ cup organic soy sauce (not a raw product)
¼ cup water
2 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional, not a raw product)
I shared many of my books recipes on this website.

I didn't mean to be rude, and I apologize.
thank-you for sharing.

Sorry, it can be hard to tell how something is being said with text only.

Raweater, I'd suggest making onion bread :p
I found a couple of great recipes on here, and I also found a fabulous carrot-onion bread on goneraw.com that blew our sox off!
Much better than blossoms ;)
