Baked Zucchini Fries

30 May

This week in our CSA package, we got more zucchini than we could…. well, shake a zucchini at.

Included in the package was a recipe for zucchini fries, courtesy of allrecipes.com. I decided to give it a try and thought it turned out very well. A nice alternative from french fries with dinner… or addition, as can be seen by my own dinner plate.

    Oh and heres a tip, you may already know this, but the sweet potatoes are actually called yams (orange ones) at the grocery store, and if you buy the ones labeled sweet potatoes (white ones) they aren’t quite as sweet and flavorful.

      I learned that last year when I made lentil soup! Thanks for the tip. 🙂

    I’ve tried these before, pretty good! Have you tried making your own sweet potato fries yet? If not you definitely need to, super easy and soooo tasty. Cut the potato like a french fry and put a little olive oil on, then salt and pepper and bake.

      Oh man – I have NOT tried to make my own sweet potato fries. They sound delicious! I’ll have to try it out. Yum…. of course, since it’s lunchtime, it sounds even more amazing.
