According to research, fries are a favourite treat food for at least 99% of the population (and by research we mean we asked everyone in our office and all agreed that fries are a favourite!). With this valuable scientific data in mind, coming up with recipes for fries and fry alternatives is a very important mission for us. So here is another option to hit that satisfying spot whilst ensuring variety and nutrients are being included in your diet.
Today, the humble zucchini is being used as the basis for our fries. Zucchinis are great because their nutrient : energy ratio is really high, meaning that you get heaps of essential nutrients compared to very little energy (also meaning, you can eat as much as you like!).
The crumb contains hemp seeds and nutritional yeast flakes. Nutritional savoury flakes are a great source of all of your B vitamins and calcium, iron, zinc and potassium and they have a really yummy savoury flavour. Hemp seeds are a complete protein and provide omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids as well as a range of vitamins and minerals.
The Tzatziki is a combination of natural yoghurt, cucumber, mint, and lemon. It’s such a fresh and zesty dipping sauce which pairs perfectly with fries. It feels much lighter and has many more nutritional benefits compared to the usual store-bought tomato sauce.
So there you have it. Another option to satisfy your craving for fries! Enjoy
