Many breaded zucchini chip recipes call for eggs, milk or other ingredients that aren't vegan. But you don't actually need animal byproducts in order to make a tasty breaded zucchini chip snack. 

Here's an easy way to make breaded and baked zucchini chips without dairy or eggs—completely vegan. In this recipe, you can use regular bread crumbs, or, if you prefer something a little bit lighter, try using panko bread crumbs instead. Note that these breaded zucchini chips can be either baked in the oven or lightly pan-fried in a bit of oil—it's up to you and how healthy you want them to be.

You may want to use seasoned salt for a recipe like this, which needs an extra savory flavor boost. However, some brands of seasoned salt contain MSG (monosodium glutamate). If that's something which is important for you to avoid, check for a brand that doesn't contain MSG, or, swap out the seasoned salt for another of your favorite spice blends


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat oven to 475 F and lightly grease a baking sheet with olive oil or non-stick cooking spray.

  3. In a large bowl, combine bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, and seasoned salt.

  4. Place the soy milk in a separate small bowl.

  5. Gently dip each slice of zucchini into the soy milk, then gently coat each slice well with the seasoned bread crumb mix.

  6. Arrange the breaded zucchini slices on a single layer on baking tray, then bake for 5 to 10 minutes, or until lightly crisped.

  7. Turn zucchini chips over, then bake for another 5 minutes.

Recipe Variations

  • These breaded and oven-baked zucchini chips are great on their own, but if you're cooking for kids, you might want to serve them up with a bit of ranch dressing.
  • If you prefer, you can also pan-fry these little zucchini chips in a bit of oil over medium-high heat. You'll need about 4 to 5 minutes on each side to get them nicely browned and crisped.
