As part of my collaboration with Snack Out Loud (click here to see my full review of all their wonderful products), I have developed a recipe using the Tomato Basil Crunchy Bean Snacks. Go to SnackOutLoud.com to find out how YOU can get your hands on some of these great snacks so you can make this fun and healthy recipe.
Tomato Basil Zucchini Fries:
2 cups of zucchini; sliced
1 egg and 1 egg white
1 cup of Snack Out Loud Tomato Basil Crunchy Bean Snacks
2 tablespoons of organic parmesan cheese
-Line a baking sheet with tin foil and preheat your oven to 425 degrees
-Wash your zucchini and cut it into wide “fry” type shapes.
-Measure out your Crunchy Bean Snacks…Aren’t they cute? 😉
-Put them in a plastic bag, and SMASH THEM!!!!!! Get all of your rage out.
-They should be about the same consistency as a panko bread crumb. Try to get them as even as you can. Once they are properly pulverized, stir in your parmesan cheese, and place the mixture on a plate or inside a bowl.
-Beat your egg and egg white together in a bowl or Tupperware container.
-One by one, take your zucchini slices, dip them in the egg mixture, roll them in the Crunchy Bean Snacks, and place them on your baking sheet.
-When all of your zucchini is coated and on your baking sheet, pop it in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Now all that’s left to do is enjoy ❤ These zucchini fries will last in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
The tomato basil crunchy bean snacks are so reminiscent of marinara sauce, that they pair perfectly with the zucchini. This recipe is quick, kid friendly, and a whimsical way to get in a serving of vegetables AND plant based protein.
