Keto Fries

“Fries” can be made from zucchini, avocado, daikon radish, turnips, rutabaga, jicama and many other veggies. Slice into sticks, bread and fry or bake.

The following is more fry like and make a great substitute. You can also roll thin and cut into triangles to make tortilla chips or form into tot shapes.

These are not my invention, I have just put all the variations in one place. As far as I know the original recipe was the almond flour version created by Heavenly Fan

Net carbs shown are for the whole batch.
