Ingredients

The sauce::

  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons basil pesto
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions

The Fries:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with foil and set a cooling rack on top of the baking sheet. Coat the cooling rack with cooking spray.
  • Cut the zucchini into 3-inch long and ¼-inch thick pieces.
  • Spoon the flour into a medium bowl. Whisk the egg in a separate bowl. In a third bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, paprika, salt and pepper.
  • Working with several zucchini pieces at a time, dredge the zucchini in the flour, shaking off the excess. Dip the zucchini in the egg, then place it in the bread crumb mixture, covering completely.
  • Transfer the coated zucchini pieces to the prepared rack, in a single layer. Repeat with remaining zucchini pieces.
  • Light coat the zucchini with the cooking spray.
  • Bake in the oven until the zucchini is tender and the breading is browned and crisp, about 15 minutes.
  • Serve immediately with the dipping sauce.

The Sauce:

  • In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, pesto sand salt.
