SUPER BOWL 50 MADE SUPER TASTY
Getting ready for Super Bowl 50? What better way to enjoy the big game, and of course the halftime show, than with friends eating great food.
But before putting dibs on the 6 foot sub, bagged potato chips, and cheesy dips, maybe consider trying these Be Well healthy comfort snacks. While healthy isn't always synonymous with Super Bowl, these yummy alternatives will surprise you: Onion Rings and Carrot fries. If you're nervous that you or the guest won't be up for these "type" of snacks, try them yourself. I guarantee having these on the table will only add to the success of the party...unless your team loses.
We would love to hear what you think and see how your take on these recipes came out. Give us a shout below.
1 White or Yellow Onion, sliced 1cm-thick and separated
3 cups Almond Flour
1 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
Approx 4 Tbsp Coconut Oil (or more) Directions:
1. Scramble eggs in a small bowl
2. Add almond flour, sea salt and pepper to another bowl
3. Take the onion ring slices using your hands, a fork or tongs and dip the onion into the egg. Let any excess drip off.
4. Take the coated egg onion and dip into the almond flour mixture until well coated
5. In a medium sautee pan on medium-high heat, add coconut oil and onion rings. Make sure they don’t overlap. Let each side sizzle until each side is crispy and brown. OR, lay down a parchment paper or tin foil on a cookie sheet, place onions on and broil on high until brown and crispy.
6. Take off of pan/out of oven. Lay on a plate to let any excess oil drip off
