Zucchini "Fries" Recipe

I love zucchini fries.  There's this place in downtown LA that serves zucchini fries for happy hour and they are heavenly.  Since I can't really eat those any more, due to the distance and the diet, I decided to come up with my own healthier version.  I have to say, these turned out pretty awesome.  I served them to friends who aren't watching calories, and they actually said, "these are really good, especially for being healthy!"

Zucchini "Fries" Recipe


3 medium zucchini
1 large egg white
2/3 cup Panko breadcrumbs
Misto or other olive oil cooking spray
1/4 tsp garlic salt
Fresh ground pepper


1. Preheat oven to 425°.  

2. Chop the zucchini up into the size "fries" you want.

3.  Whisk the egg white in a bowl with the garlic salt and fresh ground pepper.  Pour the Panko into a ziploc bag.

4. Spray a baking sheet with your olive oil spray.  Coat the zucchini sticks in the egg white mixture, then place in the ziploc bag and shake bag to coat the sticks with Panko.  Place the breaded sticks on the baking sheet in a single layer.  Spray the tops of the breaded sticks as well.

5.  Bake for 20-25 minutes and serve hot with marinara sauce.
