Parmesan Zucchini Sticks

Parmesan Zucchini Sticks are 20 minute healthy baked zucchini recipe that is veggie and flavour packed.

It’s zucchini season…in Mexico. You are probably sick and tired of cardboard tomatoes and imported green beans?! Me too. But it is what it is. Gotta eat our veggies and I love zucchini for its low calorie content and short cooking time.

What I like about parmesan zucchini sticks is how firm zucchini turns out. While zucchini naturally contains a lot of water, it was all retained inside. Once baked zucchini sticks came out crispy on top, firm on the outside and moist inside. I think only mushy pasta is worse than mushy veggies.

You can serve zucchini sticks as a side dish or literally eat by the stick for a snack. They stay fresh and firm in the fridge for up to 3 days.

I definitely have added Parmesan zucchini sticks to my dinner rotation and meal prep. Low in calories, carbs and fat, you can fill up on these guys alone. Well, not really, I would need some protein to go along with zucchini. These would pair nicely with baked chicken breast, baked salmon recipe or green lentil curry. Also try my Mediterranean baked zucchini sticks. Enjoy!
