I have tried all kinds of ‘zucchini fries’ at restaurants and cafes only to be disappointed by how oily and sloppy many of them are. Without going down the rabbit hole of explaining the science behind why inflammatory industrial vegetable and seed oils used in frying are so bad for us, let me just say that these are a welcome light change! With smokey flavors paired with my zingy Lemon Dill Aioli and with texture to live for these are hands down our fav fries!
Fries like these make quarantine happier and healthier without buying you a ticket on the spike, crash and crave blood sugar rollercoaster! These grain, sugar, and dairy-free fries use nutritional yeast instead of parmesan cheese, which are full of B vitamins that have a direct impact on your brain function, energy levels, and cell metabolism. These are such a fun, easy, and low-carb twist on regular homemade potato fries. Zucchini has a high water percentage, which is great for weight management and also contains antioxidants vitamin C and A. These will make your next Netflix and chill a whole lot more enjoyable, I promise!
Note* I have left you with two options to either make these in your oven or air-fryer and have provided instructions for both below.
