Courgette fries make a fantastic alternative to the old favourite, potato chips – and they’re just as easy but much quicker to make. Simply cut courgettes into 1 cm-thick slices, dip in milk, dredge in seasoned flour and deep-fry until golden and crispy. Serve them alongside a juicy grilled steak and garlicky mushrooms. Or if you would prefer them on their own, they’re perfect as a vegetarian starter or as a quick snack if you fancy something a bit different. Cut down on chips and try these tasty vegetable fries instead. Add salt to taste.


  • 250-300ml sunflower or vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 courgettes, cut into chips, length-wise
  • A few tablespoons of milk
  • 1-2tbsp gram flour

To make garlicky mushrooms, halve 10-12 white cup mushrooms, and then mix 50g softened butter with two peeled and finely chopped garlic cloves. Gently heat a small saucepan, and then add the mushrooms. Cook for around 5 mins until the mushrooms become tender.


  1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil until hot enough to make a piece of bread sizzle if dropped into it. When it has come to temperature, dip the courgette chips into milk and then roll in flour.
  2. Carefully drop them into the oil and cook for 1-2 mins, until crisp and golden. Do this in batches if you have a lot of chips, taking care to bring the temperature of the oil back up after each batch. Remove the chips with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Season with a little salt.
