Zucchini Fries

Ingredients:zucchini fries
  • 2 medium zucchini, halved and sliced into sticks, excess seeds removed
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • ½ c. breadcrumbs
  • ½ c. parmesan cheese, finely shredded
  • Cooking spray
Yogurt Dipping Sauce:
  • 1 c. Greek yogurt
  • 1 T. lemon juice
  • ½ c. fresh parsley, chopped
  • ½ c. fresh dill, chopped
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
2. In a shallow dish or pie pan, gently whisk the eggs together. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

5. Arrange zucchini fries on baking sheet. Season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired. Lightly spray with cooking spray.
6. Place in the oven to roast until golden-brown and crisp, 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through the baking time.
