Zucchini is a healthy option for kids over regular potato fries. They’re just as good, and kids will gobble them up. For kids serve them along with some turkey baked meatballs or homemade chicken nuggets.
If you don’t like zucchini fries baked follow the recipe and make them into fried zucchini fries. If you’re going to fry them, we do recommend using coconut oil instead. Be sure to use a refined virgin coconut oil if you prefer it without a coconut flavor.
I myself prefer not to taste coconut in anything so I used the refined coconut oil, whereas my wife Courtney can eat the virgin coconut oil without an issue. It’s really a personal preference. Some people may not even notice, but I can notice right away, even in the most flavorful food.
Don’t get me wrong, I love coconut, but I prefer my food that shouldn’t taste like a coconut not taste like a coconut. For my palate, it’s very overpowering and I prefer to enjoy the other flavors.
Another great option is our eggplant parmesan recipe and zucchini bites. If you really love zucchini you’ll love this vegetarian penne pasta recipe!
They’re great dipped in marinara too. In fact, you could even dip the zucchini fries into marinara sauce. When Courtney made these we gobbled them up before they even had a chance to really cool off. They’re that good.
