The Best Crispy Baked Zucchini Sticks

Baked Zucchini Sticks

Baked zucchini sticks are a delicious starter or snack served with hummus or any sauce, although they can also be taken as a garnish. Who doesn’t like potato chips? They have always been one of my favorite foods and potatoes in general were my favorite hydrate along with bread before I went vegan.

Some time ago I made “fried potatoes” in the oven and the truth is that they were very good. They are not as tasty, but they are lighter and healthier. Since then I have tried to make similar recipes with other ingredients such as sweet potatoes , avocado and now it is the turn of the zucchini.

The original recipe is usually made with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese, but mine is gluten-free and even simpler because you only need vegan Parmesan cheese .

Crushed nuts are a great way to replace breadcrumbs if you’re looking for a gluten-free alternative. Almond flour works very well and is very practical because it can be bought ready-made, although the good thing about Parmesan is that it gives it a very rich flavor.
