Zucchini Crispies

Zucchini Crispies

Try these wonderfully tasty bites of zucchini.  They taste like they could be fried but aren’t — just drizzle with olive oil and bake. Be careful though – it’s hard to eat just one!

5  zucchini, cut in ¼ inch slices on a diagonal
2 tablespoons spelt flour or flour of your choice
1 cup bread crumbs
¾ cup  parmesan cheese, shredded
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon  granulated garlic
½ teaspoon  granulated onion
Dash of pepper
3 tablespoons  milk
3  eggs
1/3 cup  olive oil

  • Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Mix liquid ingredients in another bowl, whisk well.
  • Slice zucchini in a diagonal direction.
  • Dip slices in egg mixture and let excess drip off, then place in pan holding bread crumbs. Pile extra mixture on top of each slice of zucchini. Press down on zucchini to help the bread crumb mixture stick.
  • Coat shallow pan or cookie sheet with layer of olive oil, saving some to drizzle on top. Lay slices in the pan and drizzle with more oil.
  • Bake in oven at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until crispy.
  • Drain on paper towels after removing from oven.

Serves:  4-6

Total cooking time: 45 minutes
