Crispy Baked Zucchini Fries with Teff Tribe

Crispy Baked Zucchini Fries

If you haven’t jumped on the teff bandwagon yet, you’re missing out. It’s the smallest grain in the world but it packs a big nutritional punch. Teff is full of protein, fibre, calcium and iron, making it a great low-GI alternative to other gluten-free grains. We’re particularly excited to announce that Teff Tribe‘s brown teff flour will be featuring in our July boxes. We came across this mouthwatering recipe for crispy baked zucchini fries, made with brown teff flour, on their website, and we couldn’t not share it with you!

  4. Dip each piece of zucchini into the egg mixture then immediately coat in the flour.
  5. Transfer each piece onto a large greased baking tray, ensuring that each chip is evenly spaced.
  6. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the zucchini fries just feel soft when pierced with a fork.
  7. Meanwhile, place the ‘dip’ ingredients in a small food processor and blend until smooth.
  8. Remove the zucchini fries from the oven and serve with the avocado dip.
