What if we told you that you could enjoy that satisfying crunch of fries without the guilt Enter: Baked Zucchini Fries. This recipe not only satisfies your craving for something crispy but also provides a healthy dose of veggies. Let’s dive into how to make these delectable and nutritious treats.


Preheat Your Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent sticking and ensure easy cleanup.

Prepare Your Coating: In one bowl, whisk together the egg whites until frothy. In another bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning blend. This mixture will give your zucchini fries their crispy and flavourful coating.

Coat the Zucchini Sticks: Taking one zucchini stick at a time, dip it into the bowl of egg whites, ensuring that it is fully coated. Then, transfer the zucchini stick to the bowl of breadcrumb mixture, coating it evenly on all sides. Repeat this process with the remaining zucchini sticks.

Arrange on Baking Sheet: Place the coated zucchini sticks onto the prepared baking sheet, ensuring that they are spaced apart to allow for even baking. For an extra boost of crispiness, lightly spray the zucchini sticks with olive oil spray.

Bake to Perfection: Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven and bake the zucchini fries for 20-25 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Keep an eye on them towards the end of the baking time to prevent burning.

Serve and Enjoy: Once baked to perfection, remove the zucchini fries from the oven and allow them to cool slightly before serving. Pair them with your favourite dipping sauce, such as marinara sauce or Greek yogurt dip, for a tasty and nutritious snack or side dish.
