Vegan Gluten Free Crispy Vidalia Onion rings

Vidalia onions are a local Georgia delicacy. Each spring we begin the search for the first sweet Vidalia onions. They are sweet yellow onions available in the spring and summertime. These onions are unusually sweet compare to others because of the low amount of sulfur in the soil in where Vidalia onions are grown. Some even eat them like apples, yes there that sweet.

For you guys not in or around Georgia. You can actually buy them online here.

But of course this recipe would work with any type of onion just not with the sweetest you get from a Vidalia.
