When the garden is bursting with zucchini, coat them with breading and watch them disappear. Experiment with adding dried herbs and spices to the flour mixture. Poultry, Cajun or Mexican seasonings are a few flavor profiles that come to mind, but the possibilities are endless.


  • ½ cup whole-wheat flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. cornmeal
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • 1½ pounds zucchini, cut into sticks
  • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 475°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Combine flours, cornmeal, salt, and pepper in a large sealable plastic bag. Working in batches, dip zucchini in egg white, shake in the bag to coat, and arrange on the baking sheet. Coat all exposed sides with cooking spray.
  3. 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 (5-7 minutes).
