Recipe Box, Parmesan Crusted Vegetable Fries with Lemon Aoli

These are pretty much “no guilt fries”


and they aren’t really “fries” at all because they are roasted


they just have the same shape as fries!


load on the lemon zest for some zing


and lots of shredded Parmesan ain’t bad either!


drizzle with some olive oil and season with salt and pepper


The parmesan forms a crispy Frico crust


you can serve them as an appetizer or a side dish

Vegetable Fries

  • zucchini
  • fresh green beans
  • lemons
  • Parmesan
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil

Lemon Aioli

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • garlic powder to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • lemon zest, optional


Vegetable Fries

  • Cut zucchini into fries by cutting in half horizontally, then cutting these pieces in half vertically, and in half again vertically.
  • Trim ends of green beans.
  • Place fries on a foil lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and cover with Parmesan and lemon zest
  • Roast at 400 for 12-15 minutes until vegetables are soft and cheese is crisped. Serve immediately with Lemon Aioli if desired.

Lemon Aioli

  • Melt butter in the microwave in a measuring cup. Let cool 1 minute then whisk in mayo with a fork until smooth and creamy.
  • At this point taste and decide if the sauce is too thin, too thick or just right. Add more melted butter or lemon if too thick, more mayo if too thin and more seasoning if necessary. Garnish with lemon zest.
