Flour- It begins with a skinny coating of flour. The flour is major simply due to the fact it facilitates the egg stick in step 2. I trust you might perhaps switch for gluten unfastened flours and even low carb flours but I haven’t tried. Tap the zucchini sticks to eliminate extra flour.
Egg- Dunk your flour-coated zucchini sticks in a number of crushed eggs! The egg wash is major to assist the breading stick in step three. My pal Izzy has used aquafaba as an egg selection in her Egg Free Crispy Baked Green Bean Fries, and I bet that would work for these zucchini fries as well!

What can I dip my zucchini fries in? We liked ours dipped in ketchup! I realize parmesan & ketchup don’t sound huge collectively but they actually were. I bet marinara sauce would also be awesome! Otherwise you might make a creamy dip, just like the dressing for this Southwestern Kale Chickpea Salad.

Can I practice these zucchini fries ahead? I haven’t tried breading them and storing them pre-cooking, but I can inform you that leftovers had been just as well as recent as soon as reheated within the air fryer (3 or so minutes till crispy and heated through). We saved our leftovers within the fridge for as a whole lot as 3 days earlier than reheating.

Can I bake these within the oven? Yes! Simply pre-heat to 425°F and bake for 15-20 minutes.
