Baked Zucchini

Pinterest is also full of so many yummy recipes! I, like most everyone out there, try to find healthy food that will taste good and that our kids will eat! I found these baked zucchini
"fries" that the kids actually ate! Of course I had to dip them in red sauce but marinara isn't to unhealthy.

Very easy
Not very expensive. Varies by store.
Prep Time: 10 min Cooking Time: 20 min
WW points: 1.3 per serving (recipe makes 3 servings)


3 medium zucchini
1 large egg white
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 tbsp grated Pecorino Romano cheese (I used Italian Mix)
cooking spray
1/4 tsp garlic powder
fresh pepper
dipping sauce of choice

1. Preheat oven to 425°.
2. In a small bowl, beat egg whites and season with salt and pepper.
3. In a ziplock bag, place breadcrumbs, garlic powder and cheese and shake well.
4. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
5. Cut zucchini into small strips. Make them about the same time so they cook even.
6. Dip zucchini sticks into eggs then into bread crumb and cheese mixture, a few at a time and shake to coat.

7. Place the breaded zucchini in a single layer and spray more cooking spray on top.

8. Bake at 425° for about 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with 1/2 cup marinara sauce for dipping (.5 pt)

I really enjoyed these! My husband liked them too! You can also add any spices that you'd like!


Here is the website I got the recipe from:
