I’m having a love affair with fries this month, first it was all about the Carnitas Street Fries and now these Baked Zucchini Fries are having a moment in my kitchen. I can’t say I’m mad about it though, healthier fries still taste amazing. Plus they take any meal from ordinary to somethin to talk about at the next neighborhood bbq :)
The best way to keep them crispy is to give them enough space on the pan. If you crowd them too much they will just steam and you won’t achieve that crispy exterior everyone loves. Slimy limp fries are just sad and no one wants that! I like to cut mine fairly thin so they cook up faster about 1/4” thick.
Baked zucchini fries were one of the very first recipes I made when I started eating Paleo. One bite and Matt and I were instantly in love! I remember thinking, if I can eat this on a Paleo diet, count me in! Have you had zucchini fries? And if you have, have you dipped them in a garlic basil aioli? Sweet serendipity they’re GOOD!
You can use my homemade easy mayo to make the aioli or a paleo/Whole30 friendly one you like to speed up the process. Just be prepared because when you add in the basil and garlic, magic will happen! Dunk your crispy fries into them and you will want to give me a big ol hug, or you can just email me to thank me lol!
