Falafel Onion Rings

Falafel Onion Rings

Looking for a delicious vegan side dish? Or maybe a plant based starter idea?

We love onion rings. They’re our all-time favourite side (right after sweet potato fries). These dairy free falafel onion rings add something a little extra to the traditional crispy snack, the only problem is you may never be able to have non-falafel ones again. Sorry about that.



  • 2-3 large white onions

For the falafel

  • 2 cans chickpeas (drained)
  • 1 red onion (minced)
  • 1/2 lemon (juiced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1.5 tbsp harissa paste
  • decent pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • good pinch pepper
  • 4 tbsp plain flour
  • small bunch cilantro
  • small bunch parsley

For the batter

  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • Panko breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil (for frying)

To serve

  • Your favourite hummus


  • Baking tray
  • Food processor
  • Mixing bowl
  • Kitchen paper
  • Frying pan


  1. 1.

    Cut the white onions into 1cm thick slices and carefully push out the rings individual rings.

  2. 2.

    Lay the rings out on a well-oiled baking tray.

  3. 3.

    Put all the falafel ingredients in a food processor and whizz them up into a paste.

  4. 4.

    Tightly stuff each onion ring with falafel paste and then put them in the freezer until they’re frozen solid (we froze ours overnight).

  5. 5.

    Put the plain flour and soy milk into a mixing bowl then mix it together until there are no lumps.

  6. 6.

    Take the rings out of the the freezer. Dip the batter-covered rings in panko breadcrumbs (make sure they’re well covered - that’s how you get a nice crispy crust).

  7. 7.

    Put the onion rings in very hot oil and fry them until they’re golden brown & crispy.

  8. 8.

    Put the onion rings on some kitchen paper to soak up any excess oil.

  9. 9.

    Serve straight away with hummus.
