Introduction: Oven-Baked Zucchini Fries
So the apple pie that I made and posted about in this ible? I ate it. The DH may have had a single slice. Literally, one slice. But it was just so good!
I told him I’d be happy to make him another one, or to make an apple crumble, which he prefers, but he said he wanted something healthy. I also had some zucchini in my fridge that I wanted to use, so dinner tonight starred my oven-baked zucchini fries! They’re healthy, super-low in fat, and more fun than eating steamed zucchini.
Step 1: The Chopping, the Mixing, the Baking, and the Eating.
Like all my recipes, this one is easy, not to mention quick.
Oven-Baked Zucchini Fries
- 2 medium zucchini
- 1 egg white
- ½ c. bread crumbs
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. oregano
- ½ tsp celery salt
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Butter to lightly grease the baking tray
Cut zucchini in three. Take each third and cut into 6 pieces. Beat an egg white in one bowl. In another bowl, mix bread crumbs and spices. Dip each piece of zucchini in the egg white and then in the bread crumb mixture. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes, then flip them over and bake another 15 minutes until golden brown and soft when pierced with a fork.
Eat, and quell those fry cravings!
