Appetizers, Dairy Free, Gluten Free

Baked Zucchini Fries

Fries don’t just pertain to potatoes anymore! You got carrot fries, zucchini fries, yucca fries and so much more! Also, I know the word fries has fry in it but you can bake your fries to crisp deliciousness too!! To be healthier, use an alternative to potato just like I did here with zucchini and bake rather than fry; those little tweaks will make a big difference with your health in the long run. Plus, fries foods always make us feel bloated and icky after; this will taste delicious and remain light on your tummy. I also make this recipe dairy and gluten free for those with dietary restrictions like myself. I hope you try it out for yourself!
