  • Air Fryer


  • 1 large zucchini
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup fine Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • oil spray


  • Cut the zucchini into thin fries. A little thicker than shoestring size fries
  • In a bowl combine the cheese, breadcrumbs, salt, and Italian seasoning.
  • Put the zucchini fries in a separate bowl and toss with the olive oil. Toss the zucchini sticks a few at a time in the cheese and breadcrumbs. Set aside
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees for 3 minutes.
  • Place some zucchini fries in the air fryer in a single layer, lightly spray with oil and cook for 6 minutes at 400 degrees. Turn the zucchini fries and spray with oil. Finish cooking for another 6 minutes or until golden brown.


You can use eggs or olive oil as your binding agent. I cook them without breadcrumbs sometimes to cut down on carbs and calories. If you have a rack or grate for your air fryer use it to get them very crispy on both sides. Don't hold the spray too close to the zucchini sticks or you'll blow the breading off. Lightly spray with quick side to side strokes and several inches away from the zucchini.
