Saturday, March 31, 2012

Serve these crispy zucchini sticks with either a low fat ranch dressing or marinara sauce for a low calorie dipping solution. Depending on how much of a "kick" you like, add a little more or a little less ground red pepper to the bread crumb mixture.

Prep Time: 5?minutes

Cook Time: 10?minutes

Total Time: 15?minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 small zucchini, washed and sliced into 3-inch by 1-inch pieces (about 1 lb.)
  • 2 egg whites, beaten
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbsp grated mozzarella cheese (about 1 oz.)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • dash of ground red pepper
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Preparation:

1. Preheat the oven to 475o F.

2. Place the egg whites in a shallow dish. Dredge the zucchini sticks in the egg white mixture.

3. In a large ziplock bag, combine the breadcrumbs, mozzarella cheese, salt, and ground red pepper. Place the zucchinni sticks, 3 at a time, in the bag, and shake until they are well-coated with the breadcrumb mixture.

4. Place the zucchini sticks in a single layer on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Drizzle the olive oil evenly over the zucchini sticks.

5. Bake for 5 minutes, then turn over, and bake an additional 3-5 minutes, or until zucchini is tender, and outside coating is crispy.
