CHEW THE RIGHT THING



BITE IT!

Freakishly Fantastic Faux-Fried Zucchini



Fried 'n True

Your days of hiding from fried zucchini are over. Embrace your love of this

formerly off-limits fried stuff NOW with this new HG creation...



Ingredients:

2 large zucchini; ends removed

3/4 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal; ground to a breadcrumb-like

consistency in a blender or food processor

1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)

1 tbsp. powdered ranch dressing/dip mix

1/4 tsp. plus 1 dash garlic powder

1/4 tsp. plus 1 dash onion powder

1/4 tsp. plus 1 dash oregano

2 dashes pepper

2 dashes salt



Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut zucchini into half-inch-wide circles. Blot

away any excess moisture with a paper towel. Place egg substitute in a

medium-sized dish, and season with a dash each of garlic powder, onion

powder, oregano, salt, and pepper. In a separate medium-sized container,

combine cereal breadcrumbs with 1/4 tsp. each of garlic powder, onion

powder, and oregano -- add the ranch mix and a dash each of salt and

pepper, and then mix well. Set out a baking pan, and spray with nonstick

spray. Toss zucchini circles in the egg substitute until they are all evenly

covered. One by one, coat zucchini with breadcrumbs (giving them a shake

first to remove excess egg substitute), and lay them flat on the baking pan.

Place in the oven, and bake for 10 minutes. Flip zucchini circles over, and

return to the oven for about 10 more minutes, or until outsides are crispy

and zucchini is cooked through. MAKES 3 SERVINGS

FIGHT IT!

Fried Zucchini, Average Restaurant



Squash THIS!

Remember the days when you would try to convince yourself that fried

zucchini was good for you simply because it was loosely based on a

vegetable? That was right around the time you were telling everyone to eat

blueberry pancakes 'cuz it was the breakfast of champions -- due to all those

antioxidant-packed blueberries, of course. Well, you're more realistic now

(thank goodness!), so you know that ANYTHING fried, be it zucchini,

eggplant, or a hunk of cheese, is NOT a diet-friendly option. And in case you

don't know just how bad this particular fried item is, a SMALL order of fried

zucchini has an average of 450 calories and 27g fat. That's WAY too much for

a side dish -- especially one pretending to be a vegetable. Eeeeks! So leave

the restaurant fried zucchini to the kooky people who don't mind wasting

gazillions of fat grams on a grease-drenched veggie dish -- and make some

of HG's Freakishly Fantastic Faux-Fried Zucchini at home. Weeeee!
