How To Cut Zucchini Fries?
Turning the zucchini into fries is fairly easy:
- Wash and trim the ends off the zucchini. Cut them in half widthwise.
- Cut and slice each half of the zucchini vertically into about 1/2- inch thick slices.
- Cut each zucchini slice lengthwise into 4-5 zucchini fries. Here’s a great visual tutorial on how to perfectly cut zucchini for fries.
- Repeat the steps for all your zucchini.
How to Make Zucchini Fries?
Making gluten-free & keto zucchini fries without bread crumbs is super easy.
- After you cut the zucchini into strips, get two shallow bowls.
- In the first one beat, the eggs, and in the second one prepare the zucchini fries coating. For that combine almond flour, parmesan cheese, and seasonings.
- It’s time to coat the zucchini. Dip each slice of zucchini in the egg wash then transfer to the almond flour “station.” Coat the zucchini well, remove the excess and transfer to the baking tray.
Once baked we love to dunk them into ranch dressing, marinara sauce, or guacamole.
PS: You can make baked no breading zucchini fries. Just cut the zucchini, sprinkle with seasonings and bake until crispy and delicious.
How To Make Crispy Zucchini Fries in Air Fryer?
These zucchini fries can be cooked in an air fryer too. Just follow the same “breading” steps and then cook them in the air fryer at 400F for about 10 minutes flipping halfway.
How Long to Bake Zucchini Fries
Baking time depends on the thickness of each zucchini slice. For the best results, I bake them for about 15-20 minutes. Flip them halfway to make sure they’re crispy on both sides.
How To Serve
While these fries are delicious on their own here are some of my favorite dipping sauces:
- Ranch Dressing
- Yum Yum Sauce
- Garlic Aioli
- Marinara Sauce
How to Store Parmesan Zucchini Fries
My recommendation would be to eat them fresh or at least on the same day. Keep in mind that once refrigerated these zucchini fries become less crunchy.
