Fries

Sick of Sweet Potatoes? It’s hard not to delve into sweet potatoes at every meal and nutritionists and pt’s around the world say eat a potato a day as you are not eating enough carbs. To be honest sometimes I look at a sweet potato and want to throw it at the wall. Sometimes I want an easier option than peeling an oddly shaped hard to cut vegetable. I love zucchini, I eat it everyday and don’t get sick of it (yet) my daughter loves zoodles but misses fries so to whip these up in 20 minutes, I’m a pretty cool mum.

Here’s some alternatives to the traditional fries that we all love;  zucchini, eggplant, daikon, capsicum, sweet potato, turnip, pumpkin (harder varieties). Cut in fries, rounds, shapes of all kinds!!
