Ingredients

  • 4

    spray(s) olive oil cooking spray

  • 1

    tsp Italian seasoning

  • 1 1/2

    tbsp all-purpose flour

  • 3/4

    tsp table salt

  • 3/4

    cup(s) dried bread crumbs, panko-variety suggested

  • 2

    medium zucchini, about 7-inches each, cut into 4 chunks, then each chunk halved

  • 2

    large egg white(s), whipped until frothy (almost soft peaks)

Directions

Preheat oven to 425ºF. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix together Italian seasoning, flour and salt. Place bread crumbs in another small bowl. Dredge a zucchini fry in flour mixture and then dip into egg whites; dredge in bread crumbs. Place coated zucchini on prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining ingredients; liberally coat with cooking spray. Roast, turning once, until desired crispness, about 12 minutes. Yields about 8 fries per serving. Notes Use this technique with any summer squash or eggplant. It also works great with thick-cut onion rings or even green tomatoes. For extra crispy fries, increase the oven temperature to 500ºF and knock 2 minutes off the cooking time.
