Crispy Air Fryer Zucchini Fries (Video Recipe)

These Zucchini Fries made in the Air Fryer are super crispy, healthy, and loaded with flavor! On top of that, they’re easy and ready in 15 minutes. They’re as addictive as regular potato fries, but with very little carbs and fat (a light spray of oil is all you need).

You can also get creative with this recipe. Use different seasonings, make it keto or gluten-free, or bake it instead of air frying. These are healthy and great as appetizers, or as a side dish to any meal.

Are zucchini fries healthy?

Yes, and much healthier than deep-fried French fries! This vegetable is packed with many important antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. It also has a ton of fiber without a lot of carbs and calories.

As a result, these zucchini fries are a very healthy snack or side dish. In fact, this dish is keto-friendly, vegetarian, and can be made gluten-free! Finally, there’s very little grease here, so it’s lighter than most fry types as well.
Ingredients for air fryer zucchini fries
  • Zucchini: Cleaned and sliced into slim, fry shapes.
  • Breading: Prepare a couple of eggs, some flour, bread crumbs, and panko. This is what makes them super crispy!
  • Seasonings: For flavor, we’re mixing up garlic powder with smoked paprika, onion powder, dried basil, and a little lemon zest to brighten it all up. Measure out some parmesan cheese as well.
  • Olive oil: This will help everything stick to our vegetables.

How to make homemade zucchini fries in the air fryer

  1. Prepare the breading. First, get a bowl and whisk the eggs in it. In another bowl, mix your flour with the seasonings and bread crumbs. Finally, combine the parmesan and panko in a third bowl.
  2. Season: Dip a vegetable stick into the flour, followed by a dip in the egg, and lastly, cover in the parmesan-panko crumbs.
  3. Cook: Spray with oil before air-frying for 15 mins. at 375, flipping once at 10 mins.
  4. Serve: Enjoy hot as an appetizer or with your favorite meal!
