Recipe tips and serving suggestions

What can I serve Low Carb Air Fryer Zucchini Fries with?

Zucchini fries go well as a side to a steak or a burger, just like the usual french fries would.  Use them like you would a potatoe/french fry.  They will go well with this Spicy Chicken Burger Recipe.

How can I store these fries?

Fries should be enjoyed immediately after air frying.  Allow to slightly cool and enjoy with your favourite dipping sauce.  If you want to store them, keep them in an airtight container for up to 3 days.  However, due to the moisture in the zucchini they will become soggy.

What if I don't have an air fryer?

These can easily be made in the oven on a parchment lined baking sheet or wire rack.  Bake at 400 for 20 minutes, flipping them half way through. 

Can I do the same with other vegetables?

Yes, try them with asparagus, eggplant or green beans.  Cooking times may vary depending on vegetables used.
