Both of my kids are fruit lovers.  Getting them to eat their veggies can be a struggle.  So I wasn’t holding out much hope when I gave them some “superhero and princess chips” that would give them special powers!  They ate them all up!  The hardest part was sharing - not them, ME!  I LOVED these chips and wanted them all for myself!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp egg whites
  • 2 1/2 cups sliced zucchini (about 2 small zucchinis)

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl combine breadcrumbs, cheese, oregano, garlic powder and pepper.
  3. Place egg whites and water in a shallow bowl and whisk together.

  4. Dip zucchini slices in egg mixture and then dredge in breadcrumb mixture.

  5. Place coated zucchini slices on a baking sheet (I line mine with non stick foil for easy clean up!) and bake for 30 minutes, flipping the slices over once halfway through cooking, or until browned and crisp.

    We LOVE zucchini at our house - these sound awesome. On a very happy note, my nearly 9-year-old son just discovered his love of broccoli. Who knew? The other night he looked into the empty steamer and said “gee, I wish you made more broccoli.” I simply steam it and drizzle a little EVOO over it with a short grind of garlic/sea salt.

    Your posts and recipes are very helpful and full of variety. My hubby hardly seems to notice our transition into a cleaner eating lifestyle. This is a huge accomplishment b/c he is very set in his eating ways. Portion control is also difficult for him. Thanks again!

      Hi Margaret,

      If you like zucchini then you’ll love these! I can literally eat a whole plate of them in one sitting! My husband will be the first to admit that he’s never had such yummy food in all his life. It’s amazing what you can do with fresh, natural and wholesome ingredients.

      Next week my husband will actually be doing a guest post for us. He’ll be making his famous South African Beef Jerky!
