Green Funions are this years black but they’re also cheap and  habit forming so they could be this years crack. About twice a month I turn my2 room beach shack into a green funion lab. The procedure for making them is relatively painless if you don’t mind crying your eyes out and keep your fingers clear of the V slicer blade. The crying can be minimized by opening some windows and running the fan but you’re on your own with the slicing skills.

What are green funions you ask? They’re an addictive dehydrated snack… basically breaded onions. The breading is a combo of ground nuts/seeds, nutritional yeast, mesquite, spirulina and salt. Green funions get there signature green color from spirulina. You could dust them with tumeric and have yellow funions I suppose… the skies the limit.

Once the onions have been sliced I salt them and mix them thoroughly. This softens them up and mellows them out. I let them sweat while I make the breading.

Next the breading gets added little by little, mixing it in and coating the onions. Often I’ll end up with left over breading that gets bagged up for the next batch.

Using tongs or my hands, I put the breaded onions directly on dehydrator screens. If you use your hands you must resist the temptation to suck your fingers until you are completely finished. Hold all phone calls and be careful not to wipe your hands on your clothes or the drapes… crack making… er… I mean funion making can get messy if you’re not careful.

About 20 medium sized onions will fill a 9 tray dehydrator.
