|You will need:|
|Olive oil cooking spray
1 tsp of Italian seasoning
1/2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
|3/4 tsp table salt|
|3/4 cup(s) dried plain bread crumbs, panko-variety suggested|
|2 medium uncooked zucchini|
|2 large egg white(s), whipped until frothy|
How to prepare:
Preheat oven to 425ºF. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix together Italian seasoning, flour and salt. Place bread crumbs in another small bowl.
Slice each zucchini in half lengthwise and then each half into 2 pieces width wise. Next slice each zucchini chunk into 4 fries. Dredge a zucchini fry in flour mixture and then dip into egg whites; dredge in bread crumbs. Place coated zucchini on prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining ingredients; liberally coat with cooking spray.
Roast, turning once, until desired crispness, about 12 minutes.
You can use this technique with any summer squash or eggplant. It also can be used for thick-cut onion rings or even green tomatoes!
For extra crispy fries, increase the oven temperature to 500ºF and knock 2 minutes off the cooking time.
Sprinkle a little grated Parmesan for some extra flavor!
