Zucchini—A Favorite Summertime Vegetable! By Raine English

Zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables, and there are lots of ways to serve it. Below is a quick and easy recipe that I love.

Parmesan Zucchini Chips

4 Servings

2 medium zucchini
1 tbsp olive oil
¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan
¼ cup plain dry bread crumbs
1/8 tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Coat a baking sheet very lightly with olive oil. Cut the zucchini into ¼ inch thick slices. In a bowl, toss the zucchini with some oil. In another bowl, combine Parmesan, bread crumbs, salt, and a little pepper. Dip each slice into the mixture, coating both sides, then place on baking sheet. Bake 25 – 30 minutes, or until browned. Serve right away.
