Baked Zucchini Fries with Marinara Dipping Sauce

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on

I’ll admit, I was skeptical about this recipe.  Zucchini just seems like such a wet vegetable, how could it bake up into crispy fries?  But it does.  And it’s awesome.  Sadly, my daughter didn’t like these, but they had been sitting long enough to be cold so I don’t blame her.  They do get soggy fairly fast, so eat them right away!  My son, who got them while they were fresh, actually ate a good portion of these so yay!

Needless to say, I really liked these.  Zucchini isn’t one of those instant “I love it” type vegetables.  I don’t think I’ve ever not liked it, but it’s never been my favorite.  This year though…   I’m really going to miss them when they’re gone 🙁

Look at that crispy, golden fry.  Even if you don’t like zucchini, you gotta admit that looks good 😀

We ate these with a simple marinara sauce.  The recipe makes quite a bit so you could freeze it, keep it in the fridge for a few days until you make more fries or just mix it in with some pasta 🙂

Zucchini fries?! You’re adventurous, Heidi! Maybe one day I can be so adventurous, but for now, I think I’ll have to stick to blending it with chocolate. 🙂

And yes, they look delicious! Despite what’s inside. 🙂

Seems rather easy to make and zucchini’s also one of my favorite vegetables. We can however find them all year round here. Right now they’re very cheap but prices are quite okay during the rest of the year as well.
