Baked Zucchini Fries

I had some zucchini in my fridge that I needed to do something with.  I came across this recipe for baked zucchini fries and I’m so glad I did.  These were delish!  Great for a snack or even just have ’em for dinner.  And they are healthy too, imagine that!  For a super tasty alternative to french fries, try these.  They are great!

Baked Zucchini Fries from Two Peas and their Pod

Ingredients

3 medium zucchini,  sliced into skinny sticks
2 large egg whites, beaten
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs (we make our own)
2 T grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp dried basil
Pinch of dried oregano
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a small bowl, beat egg whites with a fork until frothy.

Put the breadcrumbs, basil, oregano, garlic powder and cheese on a plate.  Mix well.

Dip the zucchini sticks in the egg whites and then into the bread crumb mixture, make sure all sides get coated well. Place the sticks on the prepared baking sheet.  I did the sticks one by one.

Bake at 425° for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and a little crispy. I turned over the fries half way through.  Serve warm with marinara sauce.
