  • I used 4 medium sized zucchini. Don't use large zucchini since the they so many seeds.
  • To cut the zucchini, cut in half longways; then cut in half again.  If the sticks are long, cut them in half too.
  • The sky is the limit for seasoning options: try dried basil, parsley or oregano.  Or use 1 teaspoon fresh thyme if you have it on hand.
  • Avocado oil could be substituted for olive oil.
  • If you like a more-crisp texture, cook a few minutes less. On the flip side, if you like a softer zucchini texture, air fry for a few minutes longer.
