Who doesn’t love crispy crunchy french fries? To get those fries crisp, they’re usually deep fried in tons of oil for quit a bit to get them to cook throughout. Our zucchini fries are baked and then quickly pan fried in some coconut oil to really crisp up. You could even do in just the oven if you’d like, but they won’t be as crispy.

We make eggplant parmesan recipe and zucchini bites and you could even try these too! They’re great to dip in marinara instead of ketchup. Our daughter grew up having a diet with limits due to her food allergy and since she no longer has those limitations, she eats all sorts of things. It was so exciting when we could finally make her homemade baby food. Sautéed Zucchini Puree was one of her favorite meals and now she’s in the kitchen every single Monday sharing a new recipe on her series Mini Chef Mondays – so much fun. She’s becoming quite the little chef!

Our toddler loves fries, especially veggie fries! They’re so good and we don’t mind her consuming a ton of veggies even if we quickly fry them in coconut oil. We choose coconut oil for frying and even cooking eggs, chicken, basically anything you’d use oil for cooking you can pretty much use coconut oil too! We buy coconut oil in bulk and use it for everything from food to beauty.
