They’re the ultimate comfort food. Golden, crisp, hot, greasy fries dunked in a puddle of ketchup. Your taste buds couldn’t ask for more. But your body deserves better. The next time your burger calls for a side, try these easy, oven-baked, breaded zucchini strips. All you have to do is slice, shake and bake—no messy oils or egg-based coating batter required. Thin-cut spears and a few minutes under the broiler are the secret to getting that crunch you crave!

¼ tsp. pepper
½ tsp. salt
2 zucchini


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Cut zucchini in half both vertically and horizontally, then cut into strips. (Note: thinner-cut strips make crispier fries!)
  3. In a plastic zipper-lock bag, add breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, onion and garlic powders and salt and pepper.
  4. Adding half of strips at a time, place strips in bag and toss/shake to coat.
  5. Arrange strips on lightly greased, foil-lined baking sheet.
