Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Heat coconut oil at low-medium heat in heavy bottom frying pan. Desired temperature is 375 degrees for frying.

Add two eggs to a medium size bowl and lightly beat them.

In a second bowl mix coconut flour, Parmesan cheese and salt together.

Dip zucchini slices into egg mixture and then place them in flour mix. Make sure to coat them well.

Fry the zucchini until golden brown, 3-5 minutes on each side. Place fried zucchini on a paper towel lined plate. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Something must be missing from this recipe. There could be no dipping in this very thick mix. I'll try adding some coconut milk.

what are you talking about? a simple egg dip is part of standard breading protocol. there's nothing missing from the recipe.

Don' mix the egs in with the dry ingredients. first wet the zuccini slices by only dipping them in the whipped eggs, and then coat them with the dry mix, and then into the rying pan with coconut oil - delicious!

The fried zucchini tasted very good, but they were heavy and filling. Don't eat too many at one time. I give this recipe four stars.

Follow the recipe directions....You dip in the egg, then the flour mixture....

Any ideas on what I could use instead of eggs to make this recipe vegan?

The egg is for two effects. It helps the crumb mixture stick to the zuchini plus it gives it some extra body. So, basically you can dip the zuchini slices into anythig wet before dipping them in the crumbs just to make the crumbs or even flour stick to the zuchini slices. You could use water, or even try some things like a bit of almond flour barely moistened with water for a thicker wet dip before dipping the slices in crumbs.
