I’m excited to introduce you to a my favorite vegetable side dish: gluten free baked zucchini fries. Zucchini is honestly one of my top summer foods, and while I could eat zucchini raw every day and be happy, I’m also always on the lookout for creative new ways to cook with this versatile vegetable.
I’ve seen lots of recipes for zucchini fries, but many contain dairy, are fried or just call for a lot of ingredients and time. My kind of recipe is gluten free, dairy free, with simple ingredients, an easy method and healthier whenever possible. From that wish list, the idea for these gluten free baked zucchini fries was born.
This recipe calls for only a few ingredients: your favorite gluten free chips; egg or milk of choice; cracked pepper; and my gfJules™ Gluten Free All Purpose Flour. I use my flour blend because it’s fine and light and never gritty, meaning anything you use it to make, still tastes like it should!
I’ve baked these on parchment or foil, a cookie sheet or a crisper, 425° or 450°F, 20 or 30 minutes … they always come out great. Which means it’s a very forgiving recipe!
This recipe is perfect for the summer when I’m running in even more directions all at the same time and sometimes I forget there’s something in the oven! It’s also perfect for trying to get your kids to eat their veggies or if you’re trying out a Low FODMAP diet.
So many reasons to make this veggie side dish one of your favorites, too!
If you would like to try another yummy way of preparing zucchini, hop to my Southern-style gluten free cornmeal-crusted zucchini. It makes even zucchini doubters into zucchini believers!
Here’s a video showing how to make these fries.
(1 zucchini makes 6-8 steak fry-size fries; double ingredients for 12-16 fries)
Prepare a baking sheet or crisping tray by lining with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 425° F.
Wash and slice each zucchini lengthwise into 6-8 large steak-fry shapes.
Crush chips by placing in a pint or gallon sized zip-top bag (sealed) or just the chip bag itself. Roll over with a rolling pin until fine crumbs are formed.
Prepare 3 long dishes: 1 with gfJules Gluten Free Flour and pepper; 1 with mixed egg/milk; one with crushed chips + nutritional yeast/parmesan cheese if using.
Roll each fry in flour mixture, then in egg, then in crumbs, coating on all sides. Lay on prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining fries. Space apart on the baking sheet so the fries are not touching.
Bake for 20 minutes or until chips are starting to lightly brown.
Remove and serve on their own or with your favorite dipping sauce.
I hope you love this recipe as much as we do!
