Zucchini is extremely low in calories but gives us the feeling of being full. Therefore, it is a great way to satisfy our appetites without grabbing lots of empty calories or carbs.

BAKED ZUCCHINI FRIES

These fries are amazingly crisp-tender and healthy with just 135.4 calories. And no one would ever believe that these are baked!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup Panko crumbs
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 zucchini, quartered lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a cooling rack with nonstick spray and place on a baking sheet; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine Panko, Parmesan and Italian seasoning; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
  3. Working in batches, dredge zucchini in flour, dip into eggs, then dredge in Panko mixture, pressing to coat.
  4. Place zucchini onto prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake for 20-22 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

 

NOTES: *Panko is a Japanese-style breadcrumb and can be found in the Asian section of your local grocery store.



 

ZUCCHINI SLIDERS

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 extra large zucchini (or 2 medium/large), cut into 16 1/2inch-slices

  • 1 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  8. Set zucchini aside on a plate.
  9. Add burger patties to the pan and sear each side until nicely golden, about 2-4 minutes. Flip to the other side, then add the cheese.
  10. Continue to cook until the beef is done to your liking and cheese is nice and melty!
