I want to make the oven baked onion rings from the AFR cookbook but have a friend with a nut allergy. Any suggestions for replacing the almond milk called for in the recipe? Not sure if regular milk would do the trick...does the almond milk add enough of a flavor that would be missed if replaced?

Soy would work fine. I think Isa just prefers using almond milk, but really, any non-dairy milk would work.

Yes soy would work fine... but I find that vegans generally eat Way too many soy products. I would suggest giving rice milk a try - Yu Basmati is really nice, it`s my favorite.

there's not really anything wrong with eating a lot of soy products. Of course variety is always good, but in terms of nutrition, soy milk is the only one with a good amount of protein, so I prefer it for that reason and soy milk is always fortified with calcium, vitamin D and b12, while it seems like not all the other non-dairy milks are. But yes, any other non-dairy milk will be fine.

Soy milk is also much more commonly available.
