Baked Zucchini Fries with Tzatziki

8 servings Prep time: 25 min Cook time: 35 min

Zucchini is abundant this time of year and this is one of my favorite new recipes to take advantage of it. 

Breading it in a blend of almond flour, flaxseed, tapioca flour, and spices creates a perfectly crispy outer layer. I used coconut yogurt to make my own spin on tzatziki with plenty of fresh mint and dill. 

Zucchini is a rich source of vitamin A to promote better vision and support a robust immune system. Nutritional yeast is rich in protein and metabolism boosting B vitamins and it lends a cheesy, nutty flavor to the zucchini in this recipe. 

I know you’ll love these as much as I do! 

Wishing you health and happiness,
