Zucchini Oven Fries

This recipe is from my friend Eileen. I made these the other night because our garden is overflowing with zucchini. They were delicious! I highly recommend them. 

Zucchini Oven Fries

Cut 2 (12 oz) zucchini into 3 inch sticks.
Beat 2 egg whites in a bowl until frothy.

In a plastic bag, combine:
1/2 cup Panko or regular bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp ground cumin.
Add 2 tsp olive oil and mix until combined.

Toss zucchini sticks in the egg whites.  Working in batches, transfer sticks to the bread crumb mixture, press crumbs onto zucchini and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.  bake at 450° until golden and tender, 12-15 minutes.  Serve immediately.


Our vegetarian dinner: Corn on the cob from our neighbor's garden, zucchini fries and roasted broccoli from our garden, and homemade sweet potato fries (the sweet potatoes came from the store!)
