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

zucchini

fresh green beans

lemons

Parmesan

salt and pepper

olive oil

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. More is better!  Roast at 400 for 12-15 minutes until vegetables are soft and cheese is crisped. Serve immediately with Lemon Aoli if desired.

Lemon Aoli

1/2  cup mayo [light is fine]
1/4 cup butter
juice of 1/2-1 lemon
garlic powder
fresh black pepper

lemon zest

melt butter in the microwave in a measuring cup. Let cool 1 minute then whisk in mayo with a fork until smooth and creamy.  Add lemon, garlic and pepper to taste.  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.
