Almond-Flaked Zucchini Fries
500g baby marrow/zucchini (R15)
1 egg (R2)
100g ground almonds (R38)
1 tbsp. olive oil
Salt to taste.
Total Estimated Price: R55
Portions: Serves 3 as a side to a main dish.
1. Cut your zucchini into chips. I cut them in half, and then into quarters for fuller chips.
2. Beat your egg in a bowl.
3. Place your ground almonds in a separate bowl.
4. Dip each chip into the egg, then into the ground almonds.
5. Fry in a pan with your olive oil on a medium to high heat – be careful not to burn the almonds. It usually takes 2minutes per side, flipping your chips half way.
Serve as a side to any dish, or even on their own with some home-made tomato sauce. I served mine with bacon and jalapeño meatballs. (Recipe coming soon!)
