| Filed under: FoodRecipesNina Safar

nina safar recipes baked onion rings

Everyone loves onions rings. The oily greasy fingers and calories that come with it? Not so much. Give the bbq side a healthy remix by baking it instead! Fresh herbs give it flavor without the fat.

Ingredients:

1 onion
2 eggs plus 1 teaspoon water
1 cup of bread crumbs
2 tablespoons fresh herbs (I used lemon basil)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper

Directions:

Whisk the eggs and water together in a shallow dish. Combine herbs, salt and pepper and bread crumbs in a separate shallow dish. Peel onion. Cut into rings. Dip the onion rings into egg mixture, then into bread crumbs herb mixture. Place on lightly greased baking sheet lined with parchment paper. (You can spray the rings with cooking oil for an extra crunch!) Bake on 400′ for 25 minutes or until crispy.

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce:

1/2 cup of mayo
1/4 cup of honey
1/4 cup of djon mustard
3 onion rings chopped

Combine the mayo, honey and mustard until smooth. Top with chopped onion rings for a tasty crunch!

*Tips&Tricks: Add shredded or grated parmesan to the bread crumbs mixture for a deliciously dairy and cheesy taste!

They say 8 cups of water a day does a body good, here's a super tasty recipe to help gulp it down! Throw in some fresh lemon basil (and maybe a splash of vodka!) and you will have no problem getting in your water fix for the day.

Ingredients:
5 cups of cold water
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of fresh lemon juice from 6 lemons
1 bunch of lemon basil
ice

Directions:
Make a simple syrup by combining 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar in a pot and simmer over low flame until the sugar dissolves. Once the sugar has dissolved, remove from heat and let it cool off. Take 12 lemon basil leaves and let them sit in the water while it cools off. Meanwhile, squeeze the lemons until you have 1 cup of fresh lemon juice. Once the sugar water has cooled off, remove the lemon basil leaves and place syrup in a large pitcher. Add the lemon juice, remaining 4 cups of water and ice to the pitcher. Garnish with thinly sliced lemon basil leaves and top each glass off with a lemon wedge if desired.

*Tips&Tricks: If you are serving this for adults, add in some vodka!
