How to Cut Zucchini Fries - learn the step-by-step picture guide on the proper way to slice, cut zucchini into strips to make zucchini fries.



Step 1

First, rinse the zucchini with cold water, then slice off the bottom and top parts of the zucchini, about 1/2 inch off.

Step 2

Next, using a sharp knife, cut and slice the zucchini vertically, like the picture above, about 1/2-inch thick. It’s important that you keep the thickness consistent so every single fry will be perfectly baked.

Step 3

If cut too thick, they won’t be baked properly. If cut too thin, they will turn slimy and too soft and the zucchini fries won’t be as great.

Step 4

Continue to slice the zucchini vertically. Depending on how big your zucchini is, you will have about 4-6 pieces.

Step 5

Arrange the zucchini nicely and slice them into strips just like fries, about 3-inch lengths. Make sure you are consistent with the length so the fries will bake and cook evenly.

Step 6

If you follow this tutorial closely, you will have the most beautiful zucchini fries ready to be baked or sauteed.
