Baked Squash Fries with Marinara Sauce

These “fries” are actually not fried at all. I tried them both ways, and much preferred the baked version. Very surprising considering my love for french fries!

They are super easy to make and are a great snack or appetizer. Serve them hot with a side of warm marinara sauce or dipping sauce of your choice.

Ingredients (serves 4) 

1 zucchini (cut into matchsticks)
1 yellow squash (cut into matchsticks)
1-1/2 tablespoons ground flaxseed mixed with 1/4 cup hot almond milk (or 2 eggs whisked)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup almond flour
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil a baking sheet with 1/2 tablespoon EVOO.

Mix salt, pepper, almond flour, and Parmesan in a shallow bowl.

Put the flaxseed slurry in a separate shallow bowl.

Dip each squash stick in the slurry, then lightly shake off the excess. Transfer to the almond flour mixture bowl and turn until lightly coated.

Place the squash fries on prepared cookie sheet, then drizzle with remaining oil.

Bake for 10 minutes, then turn the fries over and bake another 10 minutes. The fries should be golden brown.

Enjoy hot with your favorite dipping sauce!
