Oven-Fried Zucchini Sticks

Every bit as good as the restaurant-appetizer version--no deep fryer required.

 

INGREDIENTS

 

Canola oil cooking spray

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons cornmeal

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 1/2 lbs. Karabin Farms zucchini

2 egg whites

 

Serves 4

DIRECTIONS

 

Preheat oven to 475° F.

 

Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.  Combine flours, cornmeal, salt and pepper in a large sealable plastic bag.

 

Dip zucchini in egg white, shake in the bag to coat, and arrange, not touching, on the baking sheet. Coat all exposed sides with cooking spray. Bake on the center rack for 7 minutes.

 

Turn the zucchini and coat any floury spots with cooking spray. Continue to bake until golden and just tender, about 5 minutes more. Serve hot.
