What Ingredients Are Needed for These Air Fried Zucchini Fries?
Zucchini- Use fresh young zucchini for this recipe. They are perfect for this recipe because they are firm and small. Big ones with a lot of water content will not work in this recipe.
Panko Bread Crumbs- The amazing crispy texture comes from the panko bread coating. Bread crumbs will not work perfectly in this recipe as it gives a much softer outer layer. I will insist on using panko bread crumbs only.
Almond Milk/Whole Milk- They are used in making the vegan/ vegetarian coating instead of egg.
All-Purpose Flour/Whole Wheat Flour
Buffalo Wing Sauce-This is a surprise element in our recipe. I have used this in my recipe to get that perfect spice. The bland taste of zucchini really needs something to pop the flavour.
Crushed Black Pepper
Red Pepper Flakes
