Recipe: The Best Crispy Baked Zucchini Fries

The Best Crispy Baked Zucchini Fries

As many of you have noticed from my instagram and snapchat , we don’t eat much fried food around here. I love baking everything instead of frying because it’s so much healthier and honestly, tastes just as good if not better.

We’ve been experimenting a lot lately with healthier alternatives to the regular potatoes. We’ve tried the baked avocado fries, the baked sweet potato wedges , baked guacamole stuffed onion rings, and let’s not forget the baked broccoli and cauliflower tots. All these dishes are great alternatives to fries!
