A veggie alternative to classic fries, FRY-day never looked better!
Crisp, Flavorful & Addictive!
Zucchini Fries are a healthy alternative to the classic potato fry and a great way to enjoy all the summer zucchini starting to come our way. And Baked or Fried (I fried them this time in my Cuisanart Compact Deep Fryer), these Zucchini Fries are a great way to kick start the weekend.
Crisp, flavorful, addictive and surprisingly easy to make. You start with the goodness of zucchini, dip them in egg, then a mix of Gluten-free Panko Crumbs and parmesan cheese, then bake or fry. That’s it!
Served here with an organic marinara sauce, they also pair well with a chipotle or Sriracha mayo or dipping sauce.

Recipe type: Sides, snacks, veggies
Cuisine: Gluten-free, Vegetarian
3 Zucchini, cut into ¼ - ½ in thick sticks, about 3 inches in length (This time the zucchini were not too large so I cut the whole zucchini in half widthwise, then again lengthwise, then cut each quarter into 4 strips, so each zucchini yielded 16 fries)
1 cup Gluten-free Panko bread crumbs (we like Aleia's GF)
1 cup Parmesan cheese
½ tsp salt or to taste
Lightly bread the zucchini
Set up an assembly line with 2 bowls. In one bowl, whisk eggs. In the other bowl mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese and salt.
Dip zucchini in egg, then breading.
If Baking, place on lightly oiled baking sheet.
Bake at 425° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
Preheat Fryer to 350 degrees.
In batches, lay breaded zucchini strips in the fry basket and bake for 4-5 minutes (depending on the thickness of the zucchini)
