Baked Parmesan Zucchini Fries


  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian spice
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper


Step 1

Before you start preparing the meal, preheat your oven to 425°. Then, line two baking trays with parchment paper.

Step 2

Now, slice the zucchini in half, so each half is about 4″ inches long. Then, cut them in half again, lengthwise. Finally, continue cutting the zucchini into quarters. You should have 16 slices when you’re done. Repeat these step for the other zucchini.

Step 3

Next, grab a medium bowl. Crack the egg in the bowl and lightly beat it. Then, in a separate bowl, add the parmesan and spice and stir to combine.

Step 4

With both bowls in front of you, grab a zucchini slice and dip it into the egg wash. Following the egg wash, transfer the slice to the parmesan spice mixture. Use your free hand to coat the zucchini thoroughly and then transfer to the baking tray. Repeat this process until all zucchini are coated and resting on the baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown, flipping the slices halfway through (on the cut side.)


While the zucchini fries are baking, you can start making the aioli dipping sauce. Start by grabbing a small bowl and spatula or whisk. Next, mix the lemon juice and mayonnaise until it’s completely combined together. Then, mix in the minced garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper. Serve on the side in a small ramekin and enjoy!
