INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 zucchini cut into strips about 3 inches long
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
Cashew Dipping Sauce
  • 1 cup cashews soaked overnight
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 garlic clove pressed
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

METHOD

Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a cooling rack with nonstick spray and place on a baking sheet; set aside. In a large bowl, combine Panko and Italian seasoning; season with salt and pepper; set aside.
Working in batches, dredge zucchini in flour, spray with cooking spray, then dredge in Panko mixture, pressing to coat.
Place zucchini onto a prepared baking sheet, and bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and crisp, about 20-25 minutes.
While the zucchinis are baking, blend the ingredients for the dip in a small food processor. Serve the dip with the zucchini fries while hot.
