Savory Fried Zucchini
2 large eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 cup *toasted bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp *corn starch
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast *(optional)
2 tsp dried herbs (basil, rosemary, thyme, etc..)
oil for frying
*Freshly ground black pepper and sea salt to taste
*Oil for frying
Clean and cut the zucchini into 1/2 inch thick slices.
Place all of the dry ingredients into a shallow baking dish and mix thouroughly.
Crack the two large eggs into a separate shallow dish, and whip them up completely.
Dip the zucchini slices into the eggs, then into the dry flour mixture.
Immediately fry them up in about 1 inch of quality hot oil for frying*
Allow the fried zucchini to drain onto paper towels and place them in a warm oven while you fry up the rest of the slices.
Serve with ketchup, mustard, or your favorite condiment. Enjoy! :)
I like to use day-old bread to make my bread crumbs. Simply place a couple of slices in the toaster and pulverize them with a sturdy knife, blender, or food processor.
I like to use non-gmo organic coconut oil for nearly all of my frying needs in the kitchen.
The corn starch helps to keep the coating from getting too dark while frying.
Nutritional yeast is an amazing and healthy addition to many savory dishes. Its packed with essential b-vitamins and other vital nutrients. Nutritional yeast may sound a bit strange, but it adds an amazing umami kick!
