You won’t believe that these crispy breaded zucchini fries are good for you! Zucchini has never been so tasty!
These fries, guys.
Seriously, imma die.
**Here lies Sarah, who died from happiness because of zucchini fries.**
In the best possible way of course. If I were to choose a way to die it would definitely be from zucchini fry-overload.
But seriously, I don’t think anyone could die from eating these fries. They are so, I repeat, SOO healthy for you!
(A) They’re fries that are made with the green stuff. Zucchini. AKA: My summer veggie obsession.
(B) They’re baked, rather than fried. We’re eating healthy here, guys.
I don’t know about you guys, but I personally cannot STAND frying food. Not only is it uber-bad for you, but it also usually trashes your nice clean stove and makes your house smell disgusting.
Baked all the way, especially with veggies. Because why in the world would you want to FRY veggies?? Sooo wrong…
Let’s take a look at the ingredient list for these fries shall we?
- Whole wheat bread crumbs
- Parmesan cheese
- Fresh zucchini
You want a run-down of the calories? I’ll tell ‘ya. Are you ready? 21 measly calories per fry.
Yes, I’m serious. Go stuff your face with these fries NOW. You totally can. I won’t judge.
I pretty much did the same thing.
Your snack time is fixin’ to get pretty darn tasty. Or lunch. Or dinner. Or possibly even breakfast….
YEE-UM. Don’t judge.
Just prepare for your tastebuds to literally fall off from delish overload.
So what’s to love about these fries? Let’s see, they are coated to the max with breading, seasoned to perfection, perfectly crispy on the outside and oh my gosh, SO stuff-your-face worthy.
Extra extra breading on top? Check. 😀
It’s only 8am this morning but I’m kinda wishing I had some of these fries leftover so’s I could shove some in my face for breakfast.
I could seriously demolish a plateful of these fries in seconds.
For real you guys, these fries are one of the BEST things I’ve had in a long time. And you should know that I’ve had a lotta good food over the past few weeks.
These fries trump them all.
By themselves these fries are deadly. Dip ’em in some ranch dressing and whoaaaa baby…watch out cause you just might end up eating the entire batch right then and there.
Everything’s better with a little Ranch. Fact.
Seriously guys, mere words can’t describe how amazing these fries are. You just need to try them like NOW and find out for yourself.
Then you’ll probably eat them all. By yourself.
Your weekend is about to get perfected. 😀
You’ve been warned.
