Zucchini Turmeric Fries

One of the saddest bits of news I found when I started researching how to eat a SIBO diet was that foods that contained a large source of carbohydrates (i.e. potatoes, granola, quinoa, yucca, etc.) were not allowed, due to it feeding the overgrown bacteria.

Now, I’m not going to sit here and tell you that a zucchini tastes like a fry… because it just doesn’t. But I really love these because it’s a nice little alternative to soup or a salad. And I got it off the NUNM’s website with a little bit of tweaking (so it’s SIBO approved & safe). It’s really tasty and a treat for me. And super super easy to make. So I hope you enjoy it too!

Prep Time: 20-30 MIN


  • 2-3 Zucchinis
  • Turmeric
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Olive Oil
  • Parchment Paper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Wash and cut the ends of your zucchini. Then cut them in half and into sixths.
  3. Toss them all in a mixing bowl with turmeric, s&p, and olive oil. Mix them till you’re happy with the seasoning.
  4. Spread them out on a cooking sheet (with parchment paper; makes cleanup easier). Try not to let them touch and they’ll turn out a little bit crispier.
  5. Put in for 10 minutes, then flip them to the other side.
  6. Leave in another 15 minutes, or until you get the desired crispiness you want.

Let me know how yours turns out! Would love to see any pictures/know if you liked them.
