Ingredients
Roasted Garlic Aïoli
  • 1 teaspoon roasted garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • salt and pepper
Zucchini Fries
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 large zucchini, cut into ½-inch sticks
  • olive oil in a spray bottle can or mister
Instructions
  1. To make the aioli, combine the roasted garlic, mayonnaise, olive oil and lemon juice in a bowl and whisk well. Season the aïoli with salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Prepare the zucchini fries. Create a dredging station with three shallow dishes. Place the flour in the first shallow dish and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Put the beaten eggs in the second shallow dish. In the third shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Dredge the zucchini sticks, coating with flour first, then dipping them into the eggs to coat, and finally tossing in breadcrumbs. Shake the dish with the breadcrumbs and pat the crumbs onto the zucchini sticks gently with your hands so they stick evenly.
  3. Place the zucchini fries on a flat surface and let them sit at least 10 minutes before frying to let them dry out a little. Pre-heat the air fryer to 400ºF.
  4. Spray the zucchini sticks with olive oil, and place them into the air-fryer basket in two layers, placing the second layer in the opposite direction to the first. Air-fry for 12 minutes turning and rotating the fries halfway through the cooking time. Spray with additional oil when you turn them over.
  5. Serve zucchini fries warm with the roasted garlic aïoli.
