I am not a zucchini fan but they looked so good at Ferry Building Farmers market, I had to get some. Zucchini easily loses its shape when cooked in soups and I am not too fond of grilled zucchinis either and I also get stomach ache when I eat raw zucchini, so I was stuck with a few zucchinis in my fridge not knowing what to do with it until I found oven fried zucchini recipe. It was so perfect. So perfect because the zucchinis retained its shape and crunch while it cooked all the way through (so no stomach aches for me. hah). This is a perfect alternative to french fries. So healthy, so deliciuos.
Baked Zucchini Fries Recipe adapted from Eatn’ on the Cheap
2 medium zucchini
2 T milk
1 cup Seasoned Breadcrumbs (I made homemade bread crumbs with my sunflower seed bread and added salt, pepper, onion powder and dried herbs)
salt and pepper
1.Preheat oven to 400. Slice zucchini into sticks.
2.In a shallow dish, mix together eggs and milk and season with salt and pepper
3.In another shallow dish, spread out breadcrumbs.
Toss zucchini slices in egg mixture then toss in breadcrumbs until evenly coated
4.Liberally spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Arrange zucchini in a single layer and then spray liberally with cooking spray
5.Bake for 10 -15 minutes, flipping slices half way through. Zucchini is done when the breading has browned and zucchini has softened. Serve with your favorite marinara sauce.
