I have recently fallen in love with zucchini and cannot find enough ways to include it in my diet. My favourite way to eat zucchinis are in the form of these Baked Zucchini Fries. Crispy, flavourful and baked. Anything not fried is a win in my book!
Zucchini or a courgette is a curious vegetable. It’s a member of the squash family, and although we treat it as a vegetable, it actually is a fruit. Tomay-to, To-mah-to, right? High in vitamins and minerals and low in carbs, it is perfect for those who are conscious of what they eat. And also for those of us who just want something yummy! There’s so much you can do with zucchini – breads, muffins, stuff and bake them, stir fries, salads, even chips! Today, we are gonna see if we can swap them up for those indulgent yet purely sinful french fries!
That’s right! Zucchini fries! No oil, (mmm well…. maybe just a dab), baked, and the potential to be frozen for later use.
Making these are so simple! This is a perfect project that you could give your children. Set all the ingredients in front of them and have them dip and roll the zucchinis into the batter and crumbs. I am sure that they would love the messiness too, and it’s a great way to include your children into the cooking process!
I love serving these as an appetizer or a crisp side to this gorgeous Veggie Pasta Bake. In contrast to the soft, spicy pasta, these crisp, sweet zucchini fries are absolutely delectable!
When you make these (which I really think you SHOULD!), be sure to SHARE YOUR PHOTOS with me through Facebook, Instagram (@loveisinmytummy) or Twitter (@loveisinmytummy). I’d love to see what you cook from here and will share it with pride on my social media feeds.
