Ingredients You'll Need
What's better than a low carb side dish that takes five ingredients or less to make? Let me tell you, almost nothing.
Here's what you'll need to make the most delicious Air Fryer Zucchini Chips:
- Flour (All Purpose or Almond, depending on your dietary choices)
- Pork Rinds (if you want a little extra crunch, add some pork rinds crushed in a food processor to your almond flour)
How To Make Air Fryer Zucchini
- Quickly peel your zucchini. Leaving some (or all) of the skin is also fine. This only increases the amount of fiber you're getting from your veggies.
- Cut your zucchini into 1/8 to 1/4 inch medallions.
- Quickly dip your medallions into the egg wash.
- Dredge your zucchini slices into the flour mixture.
- Place in a springform pan, or any other pan that fits comfortably in your air fryer.
- Spray liberally with a glass oil sprayer or aerosol oil spray
- Cook at 350F for 12 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking cycle.
How To Make Zucchini So It Doesn't Get Mushy
Zucchini is just like any other veggie, it is full of liquid. If you're wanting to make sure your zucchini doesn't get mushy, make sure you dab it with a paper towel.
If you don't remove any extra moisture, it will absorb all of the flour from your batter and keep your air fryer zucchini from getting crispy.
Tips and Tricks
- If you don't feel like peeling your zucchini or need the extra fiber in your diet, feel free to leave all of the peel on. Just make sure you wash thoroughly before cooking.
- Dab the zucchini with a paper towel or dishcloth to remove any excess water before dipping in the egg wash.
- Use almond flour instead of all purpose flour to keep this a low carb side dish.
- Add your favorite spices to make this a perfect match for your main course.
