Air fryer zucchini fries
12 oz, (about 1 large or 2 small)
dried plain breadcrumbs
grated Parmesan cheese
jarred fat-free marinara sauce
¼ cup(s), warmed
- Cut zucchini crosswise into 3-inch-long chunks. Cut each chunk lengthwise into ½-inch-thick slices, then cut each lengthwise into ½-inch strips to form 3 x ½-inch batons.
- In a large bowl, lightly beat the egg. Add zucchini and toss gently to coat. In a shallow dish or large zip-top bag, combine breadcrumbs, cheese, garlic powder, pepper, and salt. Remove zucchini from egg, allowing excess to drip off, and toss in breadcrumb mixture to coat.
- Preheat air fryer, if necessary, to 400°F. Coat air fryer basket with nonstick spray. Arrange a single layer of zucchini batons in basket, leaving a little space between each. Coat zucchini batons with nonstick spray. Air-fry at 400°F until browned and crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from air fryer and keep warm. Repeat process, in batches if necessary, with remaining zucchini. Serve with marinara sauce.
- Serving size: about ⅔ cup zucchini and 1 tbsp marinara
