I've cracked it! A batter that requires zero oils or fats to crisp up beautifully in a hot oven. Feel free to use any kind of onion you like; I only had red ones on hand, but I think these would be AMAZING with Vidalia/sweet onions. Just adjust the cooking time if you use big rings. Just imagine the possibilities: on veggie burgers, stacked high in a tower o' rings, or as a side to some awesome pulled jackfruit sammiches...
