Nutritional values

Few calories, lots of taste: these delicious zucchini fries are a great alternative to classic french fries, as the zucchini contains more vitamins and minerals. These fries also cotain almonds, cheese, eggs and yogurt, which pack it with protein.

If you have enough time, make the pesto yourself.
