French Fries Made with Zucchini

Instead of frying I baked these on a pan in the oven. Came out great. Why do most of the recipes seem to be fried instead of baked? Fried seems less healthy. Dietitian Comment: Thank you for the question. Baking the fries instead of frying them can be a way to cut back on the fat in the recipe; which would be a healthy version. However, if the oil is hot enough when you fry the zucchini they only soak up a fraction of the oil. Frying versus baking is also just a personal preference as well.

Made this recipe. Flavor was good. Used only one egg and half a cup of milk, which was more than enough for two zucchini. I may try less milk next time. Most of the batter was in the frying pan when done. But what was left on the veggie was crunchy and tasty. i did not peel. Does that increase the potassium? Dietitian comment: No, not a significant potassium difference with the peel.

Noticed this same recipe under name French Fries made with Eggplant. In fact, that recipe calls for zucchini!! Isn't Zucchini different nutrionally than Eggplant? Dietitian comment: Yes,it is the same recipe except for the vegetable change. The nutrient analysis reflects the difference.

is this a recipe for zucchini or eggplant? Step 5 says eggplant. Cooking times would be different, I would imagine. Dietitian comment: Yes Step #5 is zucchini instead of eggplant and has been changed. Thank you! The vegetables cook rather quickly. Once the batter is golden you can pierce with a fork to check. Aim for tender-crisp. .
