Zucchini Fries:

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian spice

Lemon Parsley Aioli:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 lemonjuiced
  • 1 garlic cloveminced
  • 1 tbspfinely chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper


First, preheat the oven to 425F. Slice the zucchinis in half, then half again and in quarters. Blot the zucchinis with a paper towel because you don’t want any excess moisture from the zucchini. This would make it harder for the egg wash to stick.

Next, continue to watch Downshiftology’s tutorial on YouTube on how to make the breading on the outside with Parmesan cheese and spice blend. Once you have your egg wash and seasoning ready, dip and coat each zucchini individually. Place them on the baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes while flipping them halfway through on the cut side.
