We love all kinds of fries in our house and I’m not going to lie, with two teen boys we make and eat A LOT of potato fries (cut them in 1/2 inch strips, toss in oil, sprinkle with salt, bake at 400 degrees for 30 minute and they are amazing every time!) BUT we also like to switch it up!
Zucchini Fries are a healthy and really yummy alternative to the classic potato fry and a great way to get in those veggies!
To be honest, this is the ONLY way my boys like zucchini at the moment! And while they are particularly tasty in the Summer and Fall when zucchini are their freshest, we love them all year round.
Crispy outside, tender inside, packed with flavor and surprisingly easy to make.
All you need is 4 ingredients! Zucchini, eggs, gluten-free panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese or dairy free Parmesan (I’ve added a dairy-free, nut-free Parmesan recipe from my friend Corey of The Vegan Six that works beautifully below), plus some salt.
You start with the goodness of zucchini, dip them in egg, then a mix of Gluten-free Panko Crumbs and Parmesan cheese, then bake or fry. That’s it!
And Baked (see below) or Fried (I fried them in this main photo in my Cuisanart Compact Deep Fryer), these Zucchini Fries always crispy and delish!
Served here with an organic marinara sauce, they also pair well with a Sriracha mayo or dipping sauce or a ranch dressing (here’s the link to our favorite vegan ranch dressing ).
Hope you love them as much as we do!
