Zucchini Fries
2 servings

2 medium zucchini squash
1 egg white
1 cup plain breadcrumbs
1/4 cup pecorino, finely grated
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
2 lemon wedges

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut zucchini into 3-inch long spears (or slices, whatever you prefer). Lightly coat the baking sheet with olive oil and prepare the coating bowls. Whisk a bit of water with the egg white in, the first and combine the breadcrumbs, pecorino, spices, salt and pepper in the second. Dredge the zucchini pieces through the egg white and then the breadcrumb mixture.  Arrange in a single layer on the sheet. Bake until golden brown (approximately 30 minutes), flipping after 15 minutes. Season with flake salt (we prefer Maldon) and serve with lemon wedges.
