  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste

Zucchini sticks

  • 3 medium zucchini, unpeeled, cut into 3″-long stick
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • scant 1/2  cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Pizza Seasoning or mixed Italian herbs
  • olive oil spray
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute; or 2 large eggs; or 3 egg whites, lightly beaten

Dip

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium sweet onion, about 1/2 pound, peeled and sliced
  • 1 ounce cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 ounces honey
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 8 ounces mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste

Zucchini sticks

  • 1 1/4 to 1 1/2  pounds (3 medium) zucchini, unpeeled, cut into 3″-long stick
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 3/4 ounces Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 3/4 ounces freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Pizza Seasoning or mixed Italian herbs
  • olive oil spray
  • 4 ounces egg substitute; or 2 large eggs; or 3 egg whites, lightly beaten

Dip

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium sweet onion, about 1/2 pound, peeled and sliced
  • 28g cider vinegar
  • 43g honey
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 227g mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste

Zucchini sticks

  • 567 to 680g (3 medium) zucchini, unpeeled, cut into 3″-long stick
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 50g Panko bread crumbs
  • 50g freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Pizza Seasoning or mixed Italian herbs
  • olive oil spray
  • 113g egg substitute; or 2 large eggs; or 3 egg whites, lightly beaten

Directions

1) To make the dip: Melt the butter in a medium frying pan over moderate heat, and add the sliced onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften, then caramelize.  This should take between 10 and 15 minutes. The lower the heat, the longer it takes, but the less likely you are to burn the onions.
2) Once the onions are a medium brown, remove from the heat and add the vinegar.
3) Place the onions and vinegar into a small food processor.  Add the honey and mustard, and process or blend until smooth.
4) Add the mayonnaise and salt and pepper to taste, stirring to combine. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
5) To make the zucchini sticks: Place the zucchini sticks in a colander over a bowl and sprinkle with the tablespoon of salt. Let the zucchini drain for 1 hour or longer; rinse and pat dry.
6) Combine the Panko, Parmesan, and pizza seasoning; set aside.
7) Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment, and spray the parchment with olive oil.
8) Dredge sticks a few at a time in the egg, then roll in the crumb mixture. Place the sticks on the prepared baking sheet.
9) Bake sticks for 12 minutes, turn over, and bake for an additional 8 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.
10) Serve immediately, with sweet onion dip.
Yield: about 3 dozen zucchini sticks, and 1 1/2 cups dip.
