Baked Summer Squash and Zucchini Sticks

I have one zucchini plant and it is producing a good sized zucchini every few days. My co-worker brought in some yellow summer squash to share so I am bringing out all my favorite zucchini and summer squash recipes. I have made zucchini bread, muffins, Colorado Ratatouille, fried coins, grilled vegetables and now these baked sticks. I still love zucchini and am not slowing down on the zucchini recipes any time soon.

Baked Summer Squash and Zucchini Sticks


1 medium zucchini
1 medium yellow summer squash
1/3 cup italian breadcrumbs (or regular breadcrumbs with italian herbs added)
1 1/2 tbsp vegan parmesan (GO Veggie makes a great one)
1/8 tsp garlic powder
dash of pepper
1/4 tsp each of basil and oregano
3 tbsp water
1 tsp olive oil
cooking spray
1 cup marinara for dipping


Preheat your oven to 475 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.

Wash and cut the ends off of the zucchini and the summer squash. Cut them both in half and then each half into eight to create sticks. Then put the sticks into a bowl and toss them with the water and the oil.

Put the breadcrumbs, vegan parmesan, garlic powder, pepper, basil and oregano into a shallow bowl and mix to combine.

Dredge the zucchini and squash in the breadcrumb mixture and line them up on a cookie sheet. Bake them for 13 - 15 minutes; until they are softened and starting to brown.

Serve them with the warmed marinara sauce for dipping.
