Baked Zucchini Fries

This oil-free baked zucchini fries recipe yields veggie fries that are wonderfully crisp on the outside with a tender middle, perfect as a healthier alternative to deep-fried fries.


– 1 to 2 small zucchinis – 1 C of bread crumbs – 1 tsp of paprika – 1 tsp of chili powder – 1 C of all-purpose flour – ½ cup of unsweetened plain plant-based milk – ½ tsp of seasoned salt – Sea salt and pepper to taste

Slice zucchini into long and thin fries, lay them out on a tray and sprinkle on salt. Let sit for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, add breadcrumbs, paprika, chili powder to a bowl. In a separate bowl, add flour, and in another bowl add plant-based milk.

After the 20 minutes passes, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Bring the slices one at a time through the flour, followed by the milk, and lastly through the bread crumbs. Repeat twice per zucchini fry until generously coated.

Lay out breaded fries on a non-stick baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the outside of the fries are crispy. Remove them from heat, allow them to cool, and serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
