Breaded Zucchini Sticks With Horseradish Dip

From The Compassionate Cook

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
Salt and pepper, to taste

Additional salt, to taste

  • Combine the flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Dip the zucchini sticks in the flour mixture and coat well.
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Sauté the zucchini for about 5 minutes, then place on paper towels to drain excess oil.

  • Arrange the breaded zucchini sticks on a platter.
  • Pour the horseradish dip into a small bowl and serve with the zucchini sticks.

Makes 6 to 8 servings
