Recipe Tips:

  • Make sure to slice the zucchini evenly to ensure uniform cooking.
  • Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket; cook in batches if needed.
  • For extra crispiness, spray the fries with a little more cooking spray before flipping them halfway through.

Substitutions:

  • You can substitute all-purpose flour with almond flour or coconut flour for a gluten-free version.
  • If you’d like a dairy-free alternative, replace Parmesan cheese with nutritional yeast.
  • Instead of panko breadcrumbs, you can use regular breadcrumbs or crushed cornflakes.

FAQs:

  1. Can I make these without an air fryer? Yes, you can bake them in the oven at 425°F (220°C) for about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  2. How do I store leftover zucchini fries? Store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the air fryer or oven until crispy.
  3. Can I freeze zucchini fries? Yes, you can freeze them before or after cooking. If frozen raw, they can go straight into the air fryer from the freezer, just add a few extra minutes to the cooking time.
