This recipe is perfect as a side dish but also serves up nicely as a light appetizer. Crispy and tender, juicy, and full of great flavor, this easy zucchini recipe ends up on our table at least 1-2 times/month.

It's perfect with salmon, steak, a tater tot casserole, and pretty much anything else we have for dinner. But maybe there is another summer dinner victory: using up the armloads of fresh produce I somehow always find myself with this time of year.

When else are the veggies so delicious, fresh, and beautiful while also being affordable and accessible? So, whether you get your zucchini from the farmer's market, a friend, the grocery store, or your backyard, I hope this zucchini reminds you of the bounties and blessings of this season -- especially given the year we've had-- and the change of perspective that happens when we stop to appreciate all the simple blessings right there on the plates before us.

The ingredient list for this recipe is short, as we are going to let zucchini be the star of the show! The remaining ingredients just complement or showcase the summer vegetable's flavor.

The fresher, the better for this recipe so you want fresh dark green zucchini with smooth skin. It's just the zucchini, olive oil, a touch of salt, and lemon juice, making it healthy clean food to enjoy.

Yes, you can also roast or bake the zucchini, though they won't be as crisp as they are when air fried. To roast, just toss the vegetables with the oil and salt as the recipe directs.

This process mimics deep-frying because the hot air chips up the outside of the food or vegetables you are cooking. Because it uses hot air to crisp instead of oil, the results are usually healthier and lower in fat.

Some of my favorite things to air fry are smashed potatoes, steaks, green beans, salmon, and -- of course -- zucchini ! You can use the air fryer of your choice, as long as it has a basket or tray you can remove from the fryer and shake throughout cooking.

You can double or triple this recipe, but you'll want to cook each batch separately, as not to overcrowd your air fryer. Cut your vegetables in uniform size so they cook evenly.

That leaves plenty of room for enjoying zucchini fries guilt-free and in no time thanks to an air fryer. Breading: For low-carb and keto diets, we love using a mixture of almond flour and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

2 medium zucchini 1 large egg beaten ½ cup almond flour or pinko/Italian breadcrumbs ½ cup Parmesan cheese grated 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or seasoning of choice ½ teaspoon garlic powder optional Pinch of salt and pepper Oil for spraying olive or oil of choice In a shallow bowl, combine the almond flour (or bread crumbs), grated Parmesan, spices and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Dredge zucchini in egg and then in the almond flour mixture and place on a plate or baking sheet. Working in batches, place the zucchini fries in a single layer in the air fryer.

Breading options: To keep these zucchini fries low-carb and veto, opt-in for almond flour and avoid breadcrumbs. If you are not doing veto, go ahead and replace the almond flour with pinko bread crumbs.

These AirFryerZucchini Fries are crispy, delicious and easy to make in around 20 minutes A healthy low-carb veto snack with just 5 ingredients and the perfect way to use up your garden zucchini without turning on the oven to heat up the house. We are big zucchini fans and instead of making roasted zucchini recipes in the oven, we love making these AirFryerZucchini Fries during the summer, so we don’t have to heat up the kitchen in the hot summer heat.

COAT ZUCCHINI IN “BREADING”: Beat the egg in a shallow bowl and whisk together the almond meal, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, Italian seasoning and paprika (if using) in another shallow bowl. Dip the zucchini slices into the egg wash then dredge into the Parmesan mixture, coating well on all sides.

Place the breaded zucchini sticks in a single layer in the air fryer basket, you will have to work in batches. I wouldn’t recommend freezing airfryerzucchini Parmesan fries since zucchini has a high water content and can get mushy when frozen.

If you want to make these ahead of time, simply air fry and store them in the fridge in an airtight container. It contains zero fat and is high in water, fiber and full of vitamins B6, riboflavin, folate, C, and K.
