These deliciously crispy zucchini fries are baked in the oven for a healthy side dish!


  • 2/3 cup bread crumbs (or gluten free panko crumbs)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 pounds zucchini, (about 3 medium), cut into 1/2-by-3-inch sticks
  • 1 egg (see note for vegan option)
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese (omit for vegan option)
  • Blue cheese, marinara, or hot sauce (for dipping)


  1. Preheat oven to 475°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper
  3. Mix the bread crumbs, salt, and garlic powder and spread on a plate.
  4. Dip zucchini in egg, and roll in breadcrumbs.
  5. Arrange the zucchini so they’re not touching, on the baking sheet.
  6. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  7. Bake on the center rack for 10 minutes.
  8. Turn the zucchini over.
  9. Continue to bake until golden and just tender, about 8 to 10 minutes more.
  10. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.


To make these vegan, skip the egg and use a dairy-free milk and flour combination instead. Combine 1/2 cup of almond milk with 1/4 tablespoons of flour. Whisk together until it forms a paste. Dip each zucchini in the flour mixture and let any excess runoff. Roll each zucchini piece in the breadcrumbs, and place on the baking sheet.
