Air Fryer Zucchini (Courgette) Fries

Courgette fries coated in a crispy cheesy garlic and herb crumb with a garlic lemon pepper mayo dip. Made in the air fryer these zucchini fries are a great addition to your summer menu.

I used a wet and dry batter and crumb combo here, with a chickpea flour batter and then a semolina based crumb with vegan parm, garlic and herbs for extra flavour. Simply cut up your courgette, dip in the batter, into the crumb, spray with a little oil and air fry until crisp. The dip is vegan garlic mayo with added lemon zest, juice and plenty of black pepper.
