Zucchini Oven Fries

I love foodbuzz.com because it not only gives me delicious recipes to try, but it helps me find new food blogs to follow. One recipe I recently ran across was for zucchini oven fries, which instantly made my mouth water. I’m a zucchini nut in the summer months because it seems like it is the easiest vegetable to prepare. I put it in my broccoli bowls, ribbon slice it to act as pasta or simply toss it in a pan with some olive oil and garlic. Any way you prepare it is sure to be a hit.

The blog who posted the recipe for the chips was A Healthy Jalapeno: A Healthy Spice for Life. The author, Laura, is a self proclaimed health food junkie who loves experimenting with food. Here is her recipe, adopted by Cooking Light:

Zucchini Oven Chips

1/4 cup dry whole wheat breadcrumbs

2 tbsp low-fat milk (or almond milk)
2 1/2 cups (1/4-inch-thick) slices zucchini (about 2 small)
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 425°.
Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Place milk in a shallow bowl. Dip zucchini slices in milk, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Place coated slices on an ovenproof wire rack coated with cooking spray; place rack on a baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 30 minutes or until browned and crisp. Serve immediately.

My Healthy Tip of the Day: When deciding whether or not to peel yourself off the couch for a workout, try to remember that moment when you finish a sweat session. Remember, you’ll regret it more if you do decide to sit this one out.

I Can Has Cheezburger? Whenever I’m feeling low or just flat out bored, I’ll hop over to this hilarious website for a few laughs. The best part (besides being dedicated to cat humor) is that it has tons of offspring sites, such as School of Fails, So Much Pun and many more. Raise your hand if you’ve submitted photos with captions to this site. 🙂
