Snacking for dinner this evening. First, some leftover pasta, next up roasted yams and baked zucchini fries.

This tea really doesn’t go with any of it. But that’s OK. I wanted something sweet and desserty that would take cream well. This works for me. It’s not my favourite tea, but I can see why people like it.

Oh god, baked zucchini fries. I’ve never had that but that sounds so good.

You can also make baked zucchini chips by slicing them thin and baking them at a low temperature for about an hour – it’s delicious

SO GOOD! Also so easy. Egg wash, and then coat in a floury mix that has salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian spices in it. Bake 15 minutes at 425F (on parchment paper or non-stick aluminum foil), flip and bake 15 minutes.

I did one zucchini tonight, and have another one for tomorrow. I also used almond meal and coconut flour, so they’re higher fat and fibre than if you used regular flour.

Drool, both sound exquisite. I found a recipe that calls for seasoned bread crumbs and grated parmesan that looks awesome too. I’ve been craving zucchini lately so I’ll try all these ideas out. :)

That would be the easy way, Incendiare. :) Gluten free breadcrumbs are $$$ and almost impossible to find, so seasoned flour it is!

I’ll have to try that, VariaTEA. :)

I definitely recommend them. However make sure you use next to no seasoning because they shrink quite a bit and so whatever seasoning you put on becomes VERY concentrated.

Fjellrev

Yeah, your coconut + almond flour solution sounds just as scrumptious anyway. :D

Good call, VariaTEA! I could see all that water weight just evaporating.

I made dehydrator sweet potato chips over the summer, so I totally understand that! They were soooo spicy. :)

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)
