Low Carb Zucchini Recipe
Keto zucchini chips: I have to admit, for making baked Parmesan zucchini fries I had another motive. I was craving but was still healthy, something that felt like junk food.
My usual staples are actually very simple veggies, meat, and eggs even though I post lots of recipes. Although I make exceptions on most vacations I order the same kind of thing when I’m somewhere special (NY!)
I don’t get to have things like fries, And since they usually can’t make things low carb.So I wanted to make some low carb French fries when we got home from our trip and to do it Zucchini was a perfect way.
A medium zucchini has only 4 grams net carbs and 6 grams total carbs (zucchini carbs) that mean to make this zucchini fries keto, it was pretty much effortless. All I had to do was use low carb breading, by using Parmesan which was super easy to do. The resulting recipe per serving has 3 grams net carbs.
Don’t worry, though. Even though these are low carb but they taste delicious – zucchini fries! My whole family, including my 66-year-old grandmother, loved them.
I have to say, with all kinds of bread I’ve made healthy low carb zucchini fries, but this Parmesan one is my absolute favorite. In the oven, coating gets super crispy, which is fantastic.
