We love fried zucchini, but we try to avoid gluten at all costs. So I needed to get creative so we could have one of our favorite sides for dinner.
I bought cassava flour about a month ago and tried it out. It was perfect. I love this flour. It is four from the yucca root. It’s light and doesn’t feel heavy on your stomach, and well you wouldn’t even have know the difference! Want to try fried zucchini? Check out my gluten free version:
Gluten Free Fried Zucchini
1 Large zucchini ( fed all 6 of us)
2 Cups cassava flour
Oil for frying (I used organic olive oil)
Horseradish sauce- A mayo of your liking mixed with horseradish.
Directions: Start by heating oil up in cast iron skillet. Get out two plates. Add eggs to one and beat until smooth. Add flour, salt, garlic to the other and mix (use to your liking). Slice zucchini thin. Add zucchini to flour first, then egg, the flour and place in skillet. Cook about 2-3 min each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towel. Serve immediately!
This is picky eater approved. In fact, I needed to tell her she was cut off!!
A tip on seeing if your oil is ready…use the handle of a wooden spoon. Dip it down into the oil. If bubble start forming around it, it’s ready!!
You can add all different spices. Chili powder is a good one. And add some horseradish sauce for a great added flavor! Enjoy!
