Attack 2 of the Monster Zucchini

One Very large zucchini requires creative preparation. Zucchini is great and all...but cooked the same way, day after day is nothing but dull.

Round 2 of my monster zucchini is an experimentation in making cheesy zucchini fries. I like to stay away from dairy- So these will be vegan.

What you will need for zucchini fries is:
1-2 long regular sized zucchinis
1-small onion
1- bell pepper
3 cloves garlic
1/4 oil
1/4 nutritional yeast ( if you want them dairy free) or 1/2 cream cheese 
1/4 olive oil
1/4 apple cider vinegar
1 tbs each of oregano, thyme, Cayenne, paprika, and salt
(plus 1/2 shredded cheese of extra cheese of choice to melt on top)

Preheat the oven to 325 F and take out 2 baking trays

Cut the zucchini into long thin french fry looking strips and place in a large mixing bowl.

Cut the onion and bell peppers into chunks and place in a food processor or blender. Add the garlic cheese, oil, vinegar, and spice, and salt. Blend until smooth.

pour the cheese mix over the zucchini fries and mix. Lay the cheesy zucchini on the baking trays and garnish with your cheese of choice, and chives.

Bake at 325 for 30mins, or until desired gooey-ness.
