What is double breading?
Double breading simply means that you repeat the breading steps two times.
One time you use flour for breading and the second time you use breadcrumbs. That my friends makes sure you have enough coating on your Zucchini Fries in each and every bite.
You can tell that it truly makes a wonderful texture that is crispy and so amazing. As you can see this is not a method that I use for the first time. I’ve done that before for Eggplant Fries and Fried Zucchini.

What you need for this Zucchini Fries recipe
I cut my zucchinis up in strips. They can truly have the size and shape of fries, yet you won’t never expect these are made from zucchinis.
Seasonings: parmesan (I use dairy free) you can use any that you like or make my homemade Vegan Parmesan Cheese (3 ingredients, 1 min). Garlic and Italian herbs for more bold and amazing flavors.
Double breading is what makes everything so crispy and great. You will need flour and panko breadcrumbs and some oat milk, yet use any milk that you like.
Olive oil spray: Just before baking, spray your fries with oil spray to get them really crispy and unmistakably delicious.
How to make Zucchini Fries
Heat your oven up to 425F and set a baking sheet with parchment paper.
For your breading station you will need 3 bowls: for the first bowl milk, for the second bowl flour and for the last bowl: breadcrumbs, parmesan, Italian seasoning, garlic and a pinch salt of pepper, all mixed together.
Wash zucchinis, clean them up and pat them dry with a paper towel . Then cut them into strips.
Now for breading, dip zucchinis into milk first, followed by flour. Next, back again into the milk and finally coat all in the seasoned breadcrumbs.
Repeat until all zucchinis are used and distribute fries evenly on the baking sheet so you can bake them at the same time.
Bake Zucchini Fries
Bake them for around 16 minutes, turn halfway. Serve and enjoy.
Leftovers and freezing
The result will taste best fresh, though you can reheat the Zucchini Fries within 3 days.
For freezing, let them first cool completely and then freeze them first on a baking sheet. It will prevent that the zucchini fries will stick together.
After that transfer them to freezer bags or containers.
