Notes

For this recipe, I prefer small to medium-sized zucchini because bigger zucchini have a higher water content. If you have any leftover zucchini sticks, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for the next time you're craving some veggies.

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). If your oven has an air fryer setting like mine, that works wonderfully.
2. Slice zucchini into sticks, and if there's any excess moisture, gently pat it dry with a paper towel.

3. Transfer the zucchini sticks to a large bowl and toss them with oil.

4. To the same bowl, add all-purpose flour, Parmesan, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Toss to coat the zucchini sticks evenly.

5. Prepare a large baking sheet with a baking rack, which is the best way for ensuring that the zucchini sticks bake evenly on all sides, resulting in a golden-brown and crispy texture. If you don't have a rack, you can alternatively line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
6. Arrange the coated zucchini sticks on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.

7. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 15-20 minutes. Keep a close eye on them, and remove when they turn golden brown and crispy, as this is the best part!

8. Serve the baked zucchini fries with your preferred dipping sauce. Marinara sauce is a classic choice, but you can also enjoy them with ranch dressing or any other favorite dip you prefer. I added a pop of color by sprinkling on some chopped scallions for a nice touch.

I'm glad you liked them! Agree, such a delicious way to use up garden zucchini. Even my 10 year old, who is definitely not a zucchini lover, devoured them dipping in marinara, and I had to ask to leave at least some for dad to try 😀 - Alena
