Zucchini Fries – AIP and AMAZINGLY EASY
These are so simple and so yummy!
Right now easy and healthy is what I am all about. Being stuck at home means more cooking but having to do a big task every night and pleasing my picky husband can be a challenge. That is why I am obsessed with these now.
What ya need:
2-3 decent sized zucchini
1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
1/4 cup Cassava Flour or Almond Flour
1/2 cup coconut or almond milk – my favorite brand is this
1 TBSP Onion Powder
2 cloves garlic or 1 TBSP garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Combine all dry ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
Add 1/2 cup of milk to another small bowl
Slice zuchinni by cutting off ends then cutting in half and then slicing into fry size strips set aside
Preheat oven to 375 and line a tray with parchment paper
Dip one strip into milk then into dry ingredients to coat then place on tray
Line entire tray then place in oven for 15-20 minutes and flip half way through
Should be golden brown when done
Serve with a dijon mustard dipping sauce and enjoy!
Why are these ingredients great?
Nutritional Yeast –
A great altnerative to getting a cheesy flavor minus the dairy! It is also a great vegan option to get a complete protein source (contains all 9 amino acids) in (granted you must eat a good deal of it but still!)
It is also loaded with antioxidants and trace minerals as well as b vitamins.
Cassava Flour –
Cassava flour is something that is great to use for those looking to avoid grains, gluten and nuts as well as a good form of insoluble fibre. It is great for the digestive tract and can help reduce inflammation.
It tastes great and is also easy to use.
