“This meal is nutritious and easy to make on those nights you just don't have time to spend a lot of time cooking.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a stainless steel cookie cooling rack with the olive oil spray. Lay the oven fries with space apart from each other on the rack. Place carefully in an oven to bake according to the package's directions. (I've found baking these on a cookie rack browns both sides very quickly - just be very careful when taking it in and out of the oven so they don't fall off.) Bake until edges on both sides are browned. If you're unable to find the Alexia Oven Fries (they're usually in the natural foods section), spray the fries with olive oil and coat with rosemary and garlic powder.
  2. While baking the oven fries, spray a skillet with the olive oil spray and cook the ground chuck (ground lamb, elk or buffalo's even better!).
  3. Before the meat's browned, add the zucchini (I cut them in half and then thinly slice in a food processor - you can widely shred it instead if you prefer but add it in when meat's almost browned instead).
  4. Cook the zucchini and meat mix until lightly browned. Set aside.
  5. When the potatoes are done, place the zucchini and meat mix on top the "bed" of potatoes.
  6. On the side of the plate, place the sour cream (kefir, greek or labneh yogurt is better!) as a "dip". You can mix the sour cream into the mix but I find it looses some of its flavor.
  7. Enjoy!
