Zucchini Fries

Ever had fries that taste great and are actually good for you too? I love trying new recipes and this was a great find! My whole family devoured them to the last bite!

2 small zucchini
1 egg white
1/4 c. flour
3 T. cornmeal
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. chili powder
1/2 t. paprika
1/2 t. pepper
Cooking Spray
Marinara or spaghetti sauce, warmed

Cut zucchini into 3-in. x 1/2-in. x 1/2-in. pieces. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg white. In another shallow bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal and seasonings. Dip zucchini in egg white, then roll in flour mixture.

Place zucchini on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; spray with additional cooking spray. Bake at 425 for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Serve with marinara sauce.


  1. I can't wait to try theses!!! We are growing a ton of zucchini in our garden and the girls are pretty reluctant to eat anything green.

  2. Just tried these the other night -- YUM!! I didn't have any cornmeal so I substituted bread crumbs. With the marinara sauce, they somehow reminded me of mozzarella sticks! We can't wait to have them again soon!
