Zucchini fries

  • 2
  • 2 tsp (10 mL)
    vegetable oil

    ground black pepper

Roasted red pepper dip

Thousand island dip


  1. Line two baking trays and preheat the oven to 340°F (170°C)*.
  2. Cut the zucchini into 1-inch (2 cm) thick fries, and transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Toss the zucchini fries in oil. Then add the breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.
  4. Arrange on the baking trays without overcrowding. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes, or until golden, flipping halfway through.
  5. To make the roasted red pepper dip, add all ingredients to a small food processor and blend until coarsely chopped.
  6. To make the thousand island dip, combine the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Enjoy!


  • * We used top and bottom heating (not fan-assisted/convection).


  • These fries are best enjoyed immediately.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Best if reheated in the oven.

I had a lot of crumbs left over so I topped them off with some more crumbs! Next time I’ll reduce the crumb mixture but overall not bad. Barely tasted the salt, which is good for those that don’t want something too salty, but since I had “fries” expectation i will double it for the next time I make it. The red bell pepper was great!

These fries are sooooo delicious! Def would make again! A question for the PUL team: I had some trouble coating the zucchini fries well—any tips?

Hey there, Erica, glad you enjoyed the zucchini fries! Zucchini can be very hard to get fully coated, you could experiment by mixing the oil with a bit of flour, to create a thicker, gluey texture, before rolling in the breadcrumbs 😊

My neighbors had a zucchini harvest, so we've had this wonderful finger food several times now. I use panko and vary with the seasoning mixes.
My favorite: Tacco Spice Mix. 🌶

Ooo sounds like lovely neighbours! Thanks for sharing your experience with the baked zucchini fries, Yvonne 😃

I particularly enjoyed the roasted pepper dip!
I liked the cheese taste of the nutritional yeast in the uncooked breadcrumbs mix - sadly it wasn't as intense after cooking... I'll just sprinkle some more next time!
I cooked these together with your ranch baked potatoes and roasted garlic.

This us a really good idea tu use up zucchinis, especially the older bigger ones. They obviously don't taste like potato fries at all, but I'd definitely make them again. Oh, and the thousand island sauce is bomb!

I love Sadia's recipes. I made these fries as a way to use up some extra zucchini from the farmers market. For my personal taste I cut the fries a little smaller and baked on higher heat. Came out great!

Thanks for sharing, Shal, it's really appreciated 😊

I LOVE these baked zucchini fries! I have made them multiple times and love that I can eat something so healthy and so delicious.

We're so glad you're enjoying them, Becca! Thank you for sharing the review 😃

This recipe looks awesome!
But is there a substitute for the nutritional yeast? Or will the quality remain the same if I omit it?

PUL Team - June 30, 2021, 3:41 a.m.

Hi Aida! Nutritional yeast is a bit tricky to find a sub for as it adds a cheese-like flavour. You could add pulverized cashews to help mimic the creamy mouthfeel or exclude it if desired for less "cheesy" fries 😊
