Courgette Chips

Light and crispy with a hint of paprika, these never fail to impress kids and is a great way to use up excess courgettes if you are stuck for ideas.

Courgette Chips


5-8 minutes preparation

10 minutes cooking

Serves 4


4 courgettes

3 tablespoons plain flour

1 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika

Salt and ground black pepper

Olive oil for frying


  • Wash the courgettes, trim the ends and cut in half if they are very long. Slice thinly and then slice again to make French fry style strips.
  • Season the flour with the paprika, salt and pepper then roll the courgette strips in the flour, ensuring a good covering.
  • Heat the oil in a small deep pan until it is very hot.  Shake off the excess flour from your courgette and fry in batches until golden and crispy.
  • Drain on kitchen paper and serve hot.  We like them served in paper cones with allioli for a Spanish style treat.
