Ingredients
  

  • 1-2 zucchinis
  • 1 cup of bread crumbs
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk (or other non-dairy variety)
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of seasoned salt
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Slice zucchini into steak fries pieces, lay them out on a tray and salt. Let sit for 20 minutes
  • While this is happening, lay out ingredients for dipping. One bowl for bread crumbs +spices, one bowl for flour and a last for almond milk
  • Once zucchini slices are done sitting, preheat the oven and begin the process of dredging slices for coating. Bring the slices one at a time through the flour, followed by the milk and lastly through the bread crumbs. Repeat twice per fry until generously coated.
  • Lay out breaded fries on a non-stick baking sheet and bake on 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until outside is crispy.
  • Cool, plate and serve with avocado dipping sauce! (Made mine with Live, Eat, Learn recipe - search 'avocado dipping sauce' on their site!)
