Zucchini Fries

With Christmas parties wrapping up, I needed something lighter to eat for supper. After searching I came across the idea of Zucchini fries here. 

Unsure of my new recipe, I tentatively ate one fry when they came out of the oven. While trying to make up my mind... I ate 6 more .. then I started dipping them in Italian sauce. I determined I was addicted after consuming 1/4 of the tray without thinking. They are lovely little crunchy morsels that cure your "salt cravings" and are guilt free! A must try if you are on a diet or even if you aren't!

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat flour
  • 1/4 Cup Cornmeal
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt 
  • 1 Teaspoon Granulated Garlic
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/4-1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 4 Zucchinis
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • Olive Oil Spray

Directions

Preheat oven to 475ºF, line baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with olive oil.

Wash, and cut zucchinis into small strips. 

 

In a large bowl beat egg whites until foamy, mix zucchini in bowl until evenly coated. 


Mix flours, cornmeal, and spices in a large plastic bag. Put zucchini in bag of flour, shake to coat. Arrange on baking sheet without any overlapping. 

 

Bake for 7-9 minutes, flip zucchini and continue baking for 7-9 minutes, or until tender and golden. Enjoy guilt free with your favorite dipping sauce.

When zucchini looks this good, its hard to believe that it is healthy for you.

Bailey's crazy antics while I prepared the recipe... I will never look at that boot the same way again.
