Ingredients
  • 3 medium zucchini, remove ends, slice in half width wise and then into sticks (thick enough to not flop but not too thick - maybe a bit thinner than the ones pictures above is ideal)
  • 2 large egg whites, beaten
  • ½ cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp dried basil
  • Pinch of dried oregano
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Marinara sauce (for dipping)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, beat egg whites with a fork until a little frothy.
  3. Put the breadcrumbs, basil, oregano, garlic powder and cheese on a plate. Mix well.
  4. 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.
  5. Bake at 425° for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and a little crispy. Turn over the fries half way through. Serve warm with marinara sauce for dipping.
