Courgette Fries

Courgette fries

I’ve been getting courgettes from our little plant on the deck for a while now. They have been growing like crazy. I have a few good-sized courgettes hanging out that need to be used before the birds get them. I decided that making some fries was the best way to use them up and make something tasty.

Lower carbs

I like fries, but don’t like the carb coma that usually follows eating them. Whenever possible, I like to swap out the traditional potato fries with something different. These courgette fries have the fantastic combination of soft centres with a crunchy outside thanks to the cheese.
