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. Serve as a snack, appetizer, or side!
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.
