Making zucchini fries is not something that is new for us. I have been making fries out of veggies other than potatoes for a long time.

What are Zucchini Fries?
Zucchini Fries are slices of zucchini that are coated with a breading (we use almond flour and parmesan cheese for the breading on these) and then baked in the oven. They are a low carb healthier option to traditional french fries.
Zucchini is naturally low in carbs which makes it perfect for making fries out of zucchini. I coated them with parmesan cheese and some almond flour to make the perfect crispy crust when they baked and tada, easy zucchini fries that have a crispy outside and full of flavor.

Tips for Making Zucchini Fries
Use smaller zucchinis. You get less water when you use a smaller zucchini. If needed pat them dry with a paper towel before coating them.
Don’t salt the zucchini. I know people suggest using salt to remove water from the zucchini, I don’t suggest this. You will get really salty zucchini fries.
Broil if needed. If you want them crispier after you are done baking them you can pop them under the broil for a few minutes.
Change up the cheese. I use parmesan becuase it gets nice and crispy when it is baked in the oven, but you can change that up and use Asiago or another hard cheese.
