Baked Zucchini Fries
- 2 medium zucchini, sliced into sticks
- 1 large egg white
- ⅓ cup seasoned bread crumbs
- ¼ tsp. garlic powder (optional)
- cooking spray
- salt and fresh pepper
- In a small bowl, beat the egg whites and season with salt and pepper. In a ziplock bag, place the breadcrumbs and garlic powder; shake well. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
- Dip the zucchini sticks into the egg and then place into the bread crumb mixture, a few at a time and shake to coat. Place the breaded zucchini in a single layer and spray more cooking spray on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with some marinara sauce for dipping.

Tomato & Zucchini Frittata
- 6 eggs
- ¼ cup Original Almond Breeze Almond Milk (Unsweetened)
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- handful of chopped leafy greens (sweet potato greens, or spinach)
- 1 small zucchini, sliced into thin coins
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- (optional) pinch of smoked paprika
- 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
- handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
- fresh herbs – sage, thyme or basil
- salt & pepper
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Whisk together eggs and almond milk with a pinch of salt. (For a fluffier frittata, I like to do this in a blender). Set aside.
- Heat an 8 or 10 inch skillet on the stove. Add a bit of olive oil, then add the chopped greens, zucchini, minced garlic, and a few pinches of salt and pepper. Cook for just a minute or so – until the greens wilt and the zucchini starts to soften. Add a pinch of paprika, stir, then add the eggs.
- Add the tomatoes, more salt & pepper. Turn the stove off and slide your pan into the oven.
- Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until eggs are just set.
- During the last 5-ish minutes of cooking time add sage and thyme on top. (If you’re using basil, add it just as the frittata comes out of the oven).
- Remove from oven, let cool for 15 minutes (or more), then slice and serve. Add more salt & pepper to taste.
If you’re using a skillet larger than 10 inches, use 8 eggs instead of 6.
For a prettier frittata, add all of your veggies in 2 layers. Add the first half as written, then add the rest after your eggs have partially set in the oven. Continue cooking until eggs are fully set. (Note: this step is entirely not necessary for the actual taste).
