This crispy side dish is a great substitution for french fries. The zucchini is sliced thin, coated in breadcrumbs and cheese, and baked until brown but is still light in fat and calories
1/2 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 cups thinly sliced zucchini (about 1 pound)
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 450°.
Combine first 3 ingredients; stir well.
Dip the zucchini slices in egg whites; dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Place zucchini in a single layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes. Turn zucchini over; bake an additional 15 minutes or until outside is crispy and browned.
