There are healthy dishes that will make every mouth water. They look appetizing and smell amazing. One good example of this is our Parmesan zucchini fries with aioli. It will take you some time to make this recipe but it is worth it. 

What we know about zucchini is that it contains a variety of vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial plant compounds such as antioxidants. It may also benefit your heart, eyes, and skin, and has some cancer protective properties such as carotenoids (1).

Zucchini is one of the best low-carb vegetables (see our full list) to have on hand because it can be used in so many ways on the keto diet. They can be turned into low-carb noodles, bread, and other pasta alternatives.

Besides its delicious taste, Parmesan cheese has some unique benefits due to its production process and only has around 30% moisture content, which is much lower than other cheese. 

Parmesan is extremely high in protein. It is the most protein-dense among all types of cheese and also has more protein content than any meat on a gram-for-gram basis. 

Parmesan offers particularly large amounts of calcium, sodium and phosphorus. On top of that, it tastes delicious and adds a lot of flavor to food.

Combining almond flour with Parmesan gives the fries a tasty crunchy coating while keeping it gluten-free. This combination is a good alternative to flour.

Aioli, or a Mediterranean garlic-based sauce, a lovely fragrant type of mayonnaise that perfectly complements different dishes, accompanies our zucchini fries. 

To make, add minced garlic clove, a tablespoon of lemon juice, some black pepper and sea salt to homemade mayo in a bowl and mix. Serve zucchini with aioli and enjoy!
