I’ve been visiting our local farmers market once a week and have been racking up on as many fruits and veggies as I can. I’m doing my best to eat healthier and so far I’ve been meeting my goals. I’m pretty proud of myself. Some days I do get the urge to just break down and start mindlessly snacking just because I’m bored or I need a light snack to help me get through to the next meal without overeating.
Since I had a fridge full of zucchini and eggplant (you’ll probably see a whole lot more recipes with these two veggies in it—sorry) I wanted to find a different way to eat them besides how I usually cook them. These Zucchini and Eggplant Steak Fries were the perfect snack for when I wanted to start munching on something and even for a side dish with dinner. Enjoy!

Roll eggplant and zucchini into eggs until fully coated. Place eggplant and zucchini into bag and toss until fully coated. In a single layer, place zucchini and eggplant on a wire rack over cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
