Tools you’ll need for fried zucchini recipes
You can always use what you have on hand in your kitchen drawers: a plain old knife and an old frying pan, etc.
But if you plant zucchini every year, and will be making all these fried zucchini recipes, you might as well make your life easier. Here are the tools that will make your life easiest when cooking zucchini.
- mandoline slicer – use this for perfectly sliced zucchini “coins” for frying. The mandoline slicer is also helpful for making zucchini strips (for making delicous appetizers).
- fryer – I prefer a good air fryer (like this one) to make the fries healthier
- of course, if you’d just rather fry then the classic way, buy a good frying pan (this one has over 6500 great reviews).
- get a spiralizer: I promise it’ll pay you back 10 times or more. Curly zucchini fries anyone? YUM!
- foor processor – for shredding your zucchini when you make fritter. I’ve had mine for serveral years and it saved my muscles many times. They no longer sell the model I have, but this one is very similar.
That’s about it. You’re now ready to make fried zucchini chips, fritters, and curly fries. If you haven’t tried these, you must (I’ll share my recipe in a few days).
