Crunchy Baked Zucchini Sticks


Frying is a cooking method that tastes great, but is the least healthy and adds the most fat. Make it lighter by baking instead. The fat from a cooking spray is a fraction of the fat that would be absorbed in frying. Go ahead. Enjoy guilt free!

Ingredients

Olive 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
2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
1 1/2 pounds zucchini, (about 3 medium), cut into 1/2-by-3-inch sticks

Preheat oven to 475°F.

Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Combine dry ingredients in a large ziplock bag. Dip zucchini sticks in egg white, place in bag and shake to coat. Put on cookie sheet and spray with cooking spray.

Bake on the center rack for 10 minutes. Turn and spray any dry spots with cooking spray. Bake until golden brown and and just tender, about 8 to 10 minutes more. Serve hot plain or with tomato sauce.

Serves 4. Preparation/cooking takes 40 minutes
