Baked Zucchini Sticks


Zucchini is in season and what a better way to prepare it than roll it in some almond meal, seasoning and parmesan cheese. Serve hot and crispy with your favorite marinara sauce.

Ingredients

  • 2 egg whites, beaten
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 medium sliced zucchini – sliced into 3 x 1/2″ sticks
  • Marinara sauce for serving (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place egg whites in a shallow dish and season with salt and pepper. Combine breadcrumbs, cheese, oregano and garlic powder in a resealable plastic bag; shake well.
  • Working with a few at a time, dip zucchini sticks in egg whites to cover. Place in the plastic bag and gently shake to cover with breadcrumb mixture. Place breaded zucchini in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and lightly spray with cooking oil. Repeat with remaining zucchini sticks.
  • Bake until golden and crispy, 20 to 25 minutes, flipping halfway through baking. Serve hot with ketchup or marinara sauce.
