Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 2 cups panko, preferably whole wheat
  • 2 large zucchini (1 1/2 pounds total), halved crosswise and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Whisk together eggs and 2 tablespoons water in a shallow bowl. Place wheat germ and panko in separate shallow bowls. Working with one wedge at a time, dip zucchini in wheat germ; coat in egg, then panko, pressing gently to adhere. Arrange in a single layer on 2 rimmed baking sheets. Drizzle with oil; season with 3/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste. Bake, rotating sheets and flipping zucchini halfway through, until golden brown and crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve immediately.
