3sp/3pp per serving
Ingredients
  • 1 zucchini
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 5 Tbsp light ranch dressing
  • 3 Tbsp franks hot sauce
  • ½ cup bread crumbs (or panko crumbs)
  • 1.5 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp italian seasoning
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425F, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Wash and cut your zucchini in to 4 quarters, cutting in half, and then half again. Cut those into 5 fries each, giving you 20 fries.
  3. Place your flour in a flat dish, and same with your breadcrumbs. Mix your parmesan cheese and italian seasoning in with your breadcrumbs. In a bowl mix your ranch and hot sauce together.
  4. Roll your zucchini pieces in your flour, shaking any excess off, then dip and coat in ranch and then roll in your crumbs making sure to cover it all. Lay pieces out on your baking sheet.
  5. Bake in oven for approx 22-24 minutes. You can turn over if you want half way but it's not necessary, sometimes they can become messy if you move them around.
  6. Makes 20 fries at 3 smart points per 5 (3 points plus) feel free to double recipe if you need more.
  7. *Please note when figuring out nutritional info, I only accounted for 2 Tbsp flour and ⅓ cup bread crumbs as you will have leftover on the plates, but need that amount to make sure they all cover easily.

    Is the sauce counted in the points?

    What is in the sauce? Is it the ranch and Frank’s hot sauce?
