Summer zucchini is bountiful right now and if you (or your neighbors) have a garden, you likely have an abundance of zucchinis lying around. What to do with them all? We say, make these absolutely delicious, baked zucchini fries! Ultra-cheesy but without the dairy, ultra-crispy but without the flour, and ultra-delicious but without the junk!
They’re also gluten-free, low carb, paleo, and keto, making for a yummy but healthy snack recipe. Pair them with a grass-fed, lettuce wrap burger for a healthy and satisfying weeknight dinner.
