Tips and Tricks for the perfect Zucchini Fries :

  • Make sure the zucchini is not too soft, it should be crunchy and fresh.
  • Can be baked on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or place them on a baking rack on top of the baking sheet so they become extra crispy on all the sides.
  • When cutting the zucchini, make sure to remove the seeds.
  • Cut the zucchini longer and a bit thinner, to make Zucchini Sticks.
  • You can cut the zucchini into thin fries, so they look more authentic.
  • Don’t overlap the fries on the baking sheet or baking rack.
  • Allow them to bake long enough until they are golden and crispy, so they hold their shape and not become soggy.

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
