Baked Zucchini Fries

Zucchini is one of those vegetables I buy to throw on the grill with olive oil, salt and pepper but no one really loves it. When I saw this recipe I couldn't wait to try a new way to enjoy zucchini because honestly, who doesn't love fries? These were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside and tasted so delicious we could eat an entire zucchini per person! They were so good I made them twice in one week and I am not normally a zucchini lover. It's also a great way to get little kids to eat some vegetables.

Serves 4

cooking spray
2 medium zucchinis, ends trimmed
2 large egg whites, beaten

3/4 tsp kosher salt
fresh black pepper, to taste

1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 1/2 Tbsp all purpose flour
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs

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.
Slice each zucchini in half lengthwise and then each half into 2 pieces widthwise. Next slice each zucchini chunk into 4 fries. 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.
