  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and coat with cooking spray; set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper; set aside.
  • Peel and cut zucchini into 3 inch long sticks.
  • Working in batches, coat zucchini in gluten-free flour, next in the dairy-free milk, then in the breadcrumb mixture; gently pressing to coat.
