Frequently Asked Questions

How do you keep zucchini fries from getting soggy?

The key to achieving perfectly crispy zucchini fries is to make sure that your fries are dry before you begin. You can do this by sprinkling the cut zucchinis with salt and allowing them to sit for about 10 minutes, then patting them down with a paper towel to remove the excess moisture.

Another important step is to make sure that you don’t overcrowd the baking sheet when placing your fries on it. This will allow air to circulate and ensure that the zucchini fries will cook evenly.

Finally, baking or air frying zucchini fries at a high temperature is key to achieving those crispy golden edges without them becoming soggy.

Are zucchini fries better than regular fries?

Zucchini fries are definitely a healthier alternative to regular potato fries, but that doesn’t mean they don’t taste good!

These ranch flavored zucchini fries have all the flavor of regular fries without the guilt. They are crispy and packed with tons of flavor on the inside. Plus, you can bake or air fry them for a tasty treat that is sure to please the whole family.

So yes, zucchini fries are definitely better than regular fries! Not only are they healthier, but they also taste amazing!

What goes with zucchini fries?

These crispy ranch zucchini fries are perfect for snacking on their own, but if you want to serve them as part of a meal, there are plenty of delicious sides that go well with these tasty fries.

A simple salad of mixed greens with a light dressing is always a great accompaniment. If you’re looking for something heartier, try adding a side of roasted potatoes or sweet potatoes. To add some extra flavor, try serving your fries with a dipping sauce, such as ranch or garlic aioli.

No matter what you choose to serve these zucchini fries with, they are sure to be a hit!

How do you get the water out of zucchini fries?

When making zucchini fries, it is important to get as much of the moisture out of them as possible. This will ensure that your fries are super crispy and don’t become soggy when cooked.

The best way to do this is to sprinkle the cut zucchinis with salt and let them sit for about 10 minutes. This will draw out some of the moisture. Once that is done, you need to pat them down with a paper towel or kitchen cloth to remove excess moisture before baking or air frying them.

By taking these steps, you can be sure your zucchini fries will come out perfectly crispy and delicious every time!

What temperature do you cook zucchini sticks in an air fryer at?

When cooking zucchini fries in an air fryer, it is best to set the temperature to 400°F (204°C). This will help ensure that your fries get nice and crispy while also maintaining their texture on the inside. You should also make sure not to overcrowd the air fryer basket so that air can circulate and the fries cook evenly.
