Trying to figure out what to do with all that zucchini from the garden? Fret not. Your family will love this healthy version of fried zucchini. Makes a great appetizer or side dish. Enjoy!

Oven “Fried” Zucchini Sticks

Canola or olive oil cooking spray
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 T flaxmeal
2 tablespoons cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
                                                        1 1/2 pounds zucchini, (about 3 medium), cut into 1/2-by-3-inch sticks
                                                        2 large egg whites, lightly beaten

    1. Preheat oven to 475°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
    2. Combine flour, cornmeal,flax, salt and pepper in a large seal-able container. Dip zucchini in egg white, shake in the container to coat, and arrange, not touching, on the baking sheet. Coat all exposed sides with cooking spray.
    3. Bake on the center rack for 10 minutes. Turn the zucchini and coat any floury spots with cooking spray. Continue to bake until golden and just tender, about 8 to 10 minutes more. Serve hot with my Healthy Yogurt Dressing
