Fiber One Onion Rings

I found this recipe in my Hungry Girl set of recipe cards. I was a little skeptical at first - however they are DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!

1 large onion
1/2 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
Dash salt

I also added:
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder
Cayenne Pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cut onion into 1/2 inch thick wide slices - mine were about 1/4 of an inch. I am not good at cutting onions into rings :).

Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb like consistency. I used my Magic Bullet - that worked GREAT!

Pour Fiber One mixture into a bowl or plastic baggie. I found the plastic bag to work great. I placed a little in the bag at a time - and shook around to coat.

Fill a small bowl with egg substitute. One by one, coat each ring first in egg and then in the crumb mixture (give each ring a shake after the egg bath).

Evenly place rings on a baking sheet - I covered my sheet with foil - directions said to spray with nonstick spray - mine did not stick to foil. I did not use spray.

Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Again my onions were pretty thin - so it may take longer than 25 minutes if you cut them in 1/2 inch rings.

ENJOY!!! great with ketchup

Spicy Rice and Beans

This mixture would be great inside a flour shell. Chicken added would be great as well. I ate avocado with this dish. Delicious! If you like spicy - this is a great recipe. If you do not - than just omit spicy items :).

2 TB olive oil (you do not need to use any oil-just used it since it is a healthy fat)
1 onion diced
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2-1 green pepper chopped (I just threw in some I had frozen)
1 jalapeno (I just threw some in that I had frozen)

1 TB chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2-1 TB crushed red pepper
2 cans diced tomatoes with sweet onion (best choice) undrained
1-2 cups frozen corn
1 can black beans (rinsed)

1 cup minute brown rice

Saute onions, peppers, garlic, green pepper, jalapeno. I mainly just heated them, than added other ingredients. Simmer or low until corn, beans are softened.

Cook rice in microwave. Add to mixture! ENJOY!!!
