  1. Mix together the ingredients for the tomato mayo and refrigerate.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Crack the eggs into a shallow bowl and whisk until smooth.
  4. Mix almond flour, parmesan cheese and spices in another bowl.
  5. Cut the zucchini into sticks. Remove the seeds (or leave them—your choice).
  6. Dredge the zucchini sticks in the almond flour mixture until they are completely covered. Dip them in the egg batter and then again in the almond flour mixture.
  7. Place the zucchini sticks on the baking sheet and drizzle on the olive oil. Bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the fries have browned nicely. Serve with the spicy tomato mayo.

Tip!

Open your mind to all the veggie fry possibilities... asparagus, green beans, and wax beans are yummy options. All add a festive side of 'crunch' to our tasty hamburger.

    I'm looking forward to trying this recipe and I love all the different mayo recipes you have created, many thanks.

    My daughter has a nut allergy but is doing LCHF with me. We have quinoa flour, hemp flour and chickpea flour. Which would be the lowest carb substitute for the almond flour? (We also have coconut flour, which she can have, but find it imparts too much of a flavour to work with Parmesan.) Ideas for substitutions?

    They say peas and quinoa(grains) are not good for lchf. I only know of the coconut flour and almond flour. Did you text it with the coconut flour?

    They look good (and smell even better), but the taste is extremely bland and unsatisfying. I really wanted to like these but it simply felt like I was eating poached asparagus. I gave the recipe two stars- one because of the aspect of the "fries", and the second one because I like DietDoctor too much.

    How do you know how many a serving is?

    These are spectacular. Ana here remarked they were bland so I kicked 'em up by adding some powdered garlic and cayenne to the coating mix. Skipped this sauce and instead used up my leftover spicy sauce from the shrimp cocktail recipe. I cut zucchini chunky so they'd still have some body after cooking. Wow - delicious! Thank God with these very adaptable recipes, I can still engage my passion for cooking and do still lose weight with keto.

    Have to say, I have been having an amazing time trying out all these new recipes ? I tried these for supper this evening and they were okay. I’m sure they would have been much better if I hadn’t substituted coconut flour for the almond flour (ran out). Should have read the comments before I started☹️ Not a great flavour combination. Will also add some spicy seasonings next time as well.

    Mirroring another commenter - what is a serving size? Also does the nutritional information include the information for the mayo?

    Hi Amber!

    Serving size:
    Choose "1" serving (in drop-down menu, above ingredients header).

    Nutritional info for mayo should be included.

    Had these tonight with freshly made bacon cheddar hamburgers Walmart but I sliced them into chips and loved the one crispy side, next time I’m flipping them for extra crispy! A little bland but surgarfree ketchup wasn’t to bad with them
    Baked for about 25 mins. On one side next time 10 mins ea. side

    Those that have made these... would adding seasoning directly on the zucchini help give the flavor a punch, before dredging? I want to try these but I need lots of flavor in order to like/enjoy anything.
  14. Chris
    These were awesome. Yes, by themselves the zucchini steaks are bland but they are a perfect match for a flavored mayo. I did my mayonnaise with chili powder ( I don’t like heat but use enough to flavor), onion powder and lime juice.
