PIN IT! Dairy free air fryer zucchini fries.

I have to admit. I don’t really like zucchini. I like it in the form of @profmom2’s zucchini bread and I like it in the form of these garlicky delicious fries, and that’s about it ??‍♀️ After making these fries though, zucchini will definitely be a regular on my grocery list. Wanna make them for yourself?? Duh, of course you do! SAVE THIS RECIPE and thank me later ?⁣

let’s get to it!

? 1 medium zucchini⁣
? 1 egg⁣
? 1/2 c almond flour⁣
? 1/2 c panko breadcrumbs⁣
? 3 big spoonfuls of nutritional yeast (can sub parmesan if you prefer)⁣
? salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne⁣
(tbh I do not measure the seasonings, I just do a few shakes) ⁣

chopped zucchini fries
Chop the zucchini into thin match sticks. You dont want them to be too thick or they won’t be as crispy!


⁣▫️ 1/3 c mayo (@sirkensingtons is the best I swear)⁣
▫️ juice of 1 lemon⁣
▫️ 1-2 cloves of garlic⁣
▫️ 1 c of fresh basil (about a big handful)

here’s what you do

Mix the almond flour, breadcrumbs + seasonings together. Dip the sliced zucchini in egg, coat with breadcrumb mixture, throw those babies in the air fryer for 12 min at 400°. Give em a shake halfway through so they’re evenly brown. For the aioli, combine the ingredients in the food processor and give it a whirl. ⁣

Mix the breading ingredients together and get ready to dunk!

After they are cooked, I place them on a wire cooling rack. This helps them stay super crispy until you are ready to eat them! Plate them up, top with a squeeze of lemon and chopped parsley and enjoy. Slam dunk each zucchini fry into the yummiest aioli and your belly will thank you. This is my most saved recipe on instagram, so I can promise that anyone you make this for will be begging for more.
