I haven’t quite been able to break my holiday eating style yet. It is just so hard to resist sometimes. However, I found found that a good weapon for me is finding ways to eat the foods I love in a healthier way. Last night, I wanted fried zucchini. The kind that I always eat when I am back home and the kind that I ate a few times a week as a teenage bus girl at the restaurant. This version is much lighter, just as tasty, and perfect for a snack, appetizer, or side dish. I ate mine dipped in a little marinara as a side dish with a chicken burger. Perfect.

Instructions

(Hide Photos)
1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees and place a large baking sheet into the oven to preheat as well. This helps the zucchini to crisp up right away.

2

Mix together the breadcrumbs, oregano, rosemary, basil, and black pepper. Beat the egg whites and set aside.

3

Slice your zucchini into 1/2 and then slice each half into quarters. If you want them really crispy, slice each half into eighths. The skinnier the slices are the crispier they will be. Then sprinkle with salt and let sit for at least 5 minutes on paper towels. This will help remove some of the moisture.

4

Pull out the baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Dip the zuchinni into the egg whites and then coat on both sides with the bread crumbs. Place onto the baking sheet. Repeat.

5

Bake for 15-20 minutes, flipping half way through. Let cool for 2-3 minutes and enjoy!
