Low Carb Fried Squash

Fried zucchini or summer squash makes a great low carb side dish. You can also cut them into “fries” if you remove the seeds in the center. Serve with ranch for dipping.




Low Carb Fried Zucchini Squash

2 medium to large zucchini or summer squash                      

4 eggs

1/3 cup Carbquik

1/3 cup almond flour

1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oil to 350 degrees in a deep fryer, or about 1/2 inch deep in a skillet. Beat eggs in a medium bowl and set aside. Combine Carbquik, almond flour, and parmesan in a gallon bag. Slice zucchini or squash into desired shape. (Do not peel.) Coat zucchini in egg wash and place into dry ingredients. Toss to thoroughly coat.  Remove from breading mixture and fry for about 4 minutes until golden brown. Place on paper towels to drain excess oil. Season with salt while still hot.


Serves 4: NET carbs about 4.5 per serving
