Zucchini Fries for Secret Recipe Club

Zucchini Fries

For this month’s Secret Recipe Club I was assigned the Itzy’s Kitchen blog. Like me Erica started her blog as a way to share her recipes and over the years it has grown to be so much more. I had bookmarked a handful of recipes to try including the black bean soup and buffalo chicken chili but in the end went with zucchini fries. I had heard of these before but never actually made them or even tried them myself. A simple recipe that’s a healthy alternative to greasy fast food french fries. Naturally they do not exactly taste the same but I welcome them anyway. Easy to put together with a short baking time and perfect to dip into a sour cream mayo basil paprika dip.

      So jealous of your garden! I tried growing herbs on my balcony in DC but there wasn’t enough sun even for those! Hope you have lots of delicious recipes planned for your garden fresh zucchini! Checking out your post now!

    I love these things. I make them often and could eat my weight in them! Just divine. I like your addition of oregano and cumin…might have to try that next time!

    I had your blog this month…and so enjoyed rummaging around your posts! We loved, loved, loved the crab rangoon. Safe travels!

    • Vicky says

      Thanks! So glad you loved the crab rangoon – I loooove it too! We all know fried food is bad but sometimes it really is just oh so so good!

  4. Lesa @Edesia's Notebook says

    These zucchini fries look fabulous. I love how they include cumin. I never would have thought to add that, but it sounds like it would be really good!

  5. Kari@Loaves and Dishes says

    These look yummo, I would probably dip them in an herbaceous yogurt dip. ‘Cuz I gotta dip my fries.

  6. Stephanie says

    How fun! I would have thought they would be too soggy, but the cornmeal must soak it up into delicious cornmeal-i-ness that crisps…

    • Vicky says

      Yes I too feared they would come out a bit soggy but the cornmeal really did crisp up – just make sure to eat them immediately because they definitely will get soggy if heated back up in a microwave.
