It’s important to me that you guys know that not every single zucchini I lay my hands on is turned into zoodles.
Sure I make A LOT of zoodles but I actually make a lot of other cool stuff with zucchini, such as patties, fritters, parmesan bake, crisps. Just to name a few.
Saying that I make only zoodles with zucchini it’s simplistic at best. And I don’t accept it.
These are incredibly good. No like seriously incredibly good.
Not to mention low-carb and completely gluten-free.
Which means you can splurge on their cheesy, garlicky goodness and not feel guilty at all.
Zucchini sticks dipped in egg and coated in parmesan+almond+seasoning -> awesomeness.
Super light and crispy, with a great crunch. They’re so yummy, it’s almost impossible to stop eating them.
They can be used for appetizer or part of the main course.
Would you believe me if I tell you that they’re awesome even when they’re cold?
You’d better because that’s the truth.
Dip them in ranch, marinara sauce, or even my healthy ketchup recipe for an even awesome experience.
Super easy to make, virtually guilt free, and a totally painless way to get your veggies. One of those win-win-win situations!
Parmesan Crusted Baked Zucchini Fries Print this recipe!
Serves 4 as a side
2 medium zucchini
1 tablespoon fine grain salt
½ cup almond flour
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning (make your own seasoning with this recipe)
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C) and place a rack in the middle. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Cut zucchini into 3-inch length, then cut each piece into 9 fries. Place zucchini into a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let zucchini drain for at least 30 minutes up to 1 hour to remove excess liquid.
Beat eggs in a shallow bowl.
In another bowl mix almond flour, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning.
Rinse salt off zucchini and pat dry with paper towels.
Dip each zucchini piece into beaten eggs and roll in almond coating. Place coated zucchini fried on the prepared lined baking sheet.
Bake in the oven, turning halfway through cooking time, for about 25 minutes or until the coating is golden brown.
