Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
2 medium-sized zucchinis
1 cup breadcrumbs (preferably panko)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
One teaspoon garlic powder
One teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Two large eggs, beaten
Cooking spray or olive oil for greasing
Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray or a light coating of olive oil. Wash the zucchini and cut them into thin fry-like strips.
You can leave the skin on for added texture and nutrients. In a shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
Mix well to create a seasoned coating for the zucchini fries. Dip the zucchini strips into the beaten eggs, ensuring they are evenly coated.
Roll the egg-coated zucchini strips in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to ensure the crumbs adhere to the surface.
Place the coated zucchini fries in a single layer on the greased baking sheet. Bake the zucchini fries in the oven for about 18-20 minutes or until they turn golden brown and crispy.
Make sure to flip them halfway through the cooking time for even browning. Once baked, remove the zucchini fries from the oven and let them cool for a minute before serving.
