Baked Zucchini Fries

Everyone loves to eat potato fries. By potato fries, I mean super delicious food that is high in calories and made by cutting potatoes lengthwise and deep fried in oil. Since it is so high in calories it is really not something one should indulge in very often. But what a girl to do when she wants some fries but doesn’t really want those extra calories? Enter baked zucchini (also known as courgette) fries into the picture! Although they are not an exact substitute to the potato fries, they are none the less super yummy. They go be an welcome accompaniment for any meal. And those of you which picky eaters who just won’t touch their veges, this may be one way to get them to eat their veges somewhat willingly. Disclaimer: this is just my assumption, so try it out on your picky eater at your own risk! I am sure you must have deduced by now that I loved this particular dish and will be making it again and again.
