Low Carb Zucchini Fries

"A baked zucchini fry with crushed almonds replacing bread crumbs makes a very light, tasty dish. Zucchini are prepped first to get rid of extra liquid so they do not become soggy in the oven. Like having fried food without the oil."

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut zucchini into 3-inch lengths, then cut each piece into 9 fries. Place zucchini fries into a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let the zucchini pieces drain for at least 1 hour to remove excess liquid.
  3. Beat eggs in a shallow bowl. Mix almonds, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning in a second shallow bowl. Rinse salt off zucchini and pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Dip each zucchini piece into beaten egg and roll in the almond coating. Place coated fries on prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the zucchini are tender and the coating is crisp and browned, about 25 minutes, turning them halfway through cooking time.

Delicious! I salted and re-salted these and let them sit for a few hours while doing other things in the kitchen. I put them on a cookie cooling rack over a sheet pan so the water could drip out...

My family requested to have these again. They loved them! The only thing that I need to figure out is how to make them a little more firm. They got kind of soggy and they stuck to the pan so the...

I made these for dinners with pizza, and loved them. I'm a big fan of zuchinni, and this was delicious!!!

If you are seriously counting carbs, pay attention to the recipe servings listed. This recipe is for 6 servings, so one serving would only be 3/8ths of a zucchini for 4.5 grams of carbs. Great...

We are low carbing to shred a few lbs. and these were great. I had Almond meal on hand so used it instead of crushed almonds.

This recipe was good, but wasn't quite what I expected. In my opinion the herbs were too much, I am going to cut down on them by 25% or so next time. Or maybe even use fresh herbs instead of dri...

Very good, would definitely make again. I think the key is letting the zucchini drain for about an hour. I also tranferred them to a paper towel. I ground almonds in my coffee grinder and it ...

Will make this again! I left some pieces when chopping the almonds, and glad that I did, as it added a little more crunch to the fries. I added a little Old Bay and some garlic powder as well.

Delicious. But do have to make sure they drain for an hour. We can't wait to make them again.
