Baked Zucchini Fries (Gluten-free, Low-carb) Recipe by Lisa Bryan
CAN YOU USE GLUTEN-FREE BREADCRUMBS OR ALMOND FLOUR?
Absolutely. You can keep these zucchini fries low-carb and keto-friendly (and we just like the pure, cheesy flavor here). But if you’d like to make them extra crunchy and crispy you could use 1/2 cup of almond flour or gluten-free breadcrumbs and 1/2 cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
TIPS FOR ZUCCHINI FRIES
- Make sure your zucchini are dry. If you’ve just pulled them from the fridge before slicing they may start to condensate. Blot them with a paper towel before placing in the egg wash to make sure the egg sticks.
- Get your assembly line in order. Have the sliced zucchini on one side, then the egg wash, parmesan mix and parchment-lined baking tray on the other side.
- Keep your hands in separate working stations. Use one hand for dipping the zucchini in the egg and one hand for coating the zucchini with the parmesan. Don’t use the same hand for both, otherwise you’ll end up with wet cheese and clumpy zucchini fries.
- Flip halfway through. Every oven cooks slightly different so keep an eye on them. Here, we cook for about 30 minutes and you can flip at 15 minutes, but yours may very based on your oven and size of zucchini.
- Eat immediately! As mentioned on Downshiftology zucchini noodle tutorial, zucchini are comprised of 95% water. And after they’ve been cooked they quickly release that water. That means, the longer they sit the softer they’ll become. So these zucchini fries are best eaten right away.
