Zucchini Baked Fries

For breadcrumbs, I personally don’t love the grocery store brands, as they’re processed and leave an aftertaste. Instead, I choose to keep the ends from loafs of bread and use my food processor to make homemade breadcrumbs. I season it with Paprika, garlic powder and onion powder for the best flavor, and a perfect coating.

Zucchini Baked Fries:

Prep Time: 20 minuets

1 cup breadcrumbs

½ tsp Oregano

½ tsp Basil

½ tsp dried rosemary

½ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp Onion powder

Kosher salt and Black Pepper to taste

½ cup all purpose flour

2 large eggs, whites and yolk separated

4 zucchinis cut into quarters, horizontally

Optional: Parmesan Cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Celsius and line a pan with a baking sheet.

Combine breadcrumbs, oregano, basil, rosemary, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and flour in a large bowl. Beat the egg whites in a medium-size bowl, until foamy and put them aside.

Pat the zucchini quarters dry with a towel. Coat the zucchini in the egg whites and then dip them into the breadcrumb mixture.

Arrange the quarters in an even layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, making sure they do not touch. Bake for about 10-15 minutes.

Once they are crispy, you may season with parmesan for extra flavor.

The zucchini baked fries are a perfectly healthy meal, with a street food vibe. It is a burst of flavor, with an Israeli touch. This dish is vegan so anyone can enjoy it.
