Bang Bang Zucchini

Bang Bang ZucchiniCrunchy baked pieces of zucchini are drizzled with bang bang sauce for a delicious and easy meal.


Yes, I’m still obsessed with bang bang sauce. As far as I can tell, this sauce goes with just about everything. I love it with cauliflower, pasta, etc. My latest version is with zucchini.

Think bite-sized baked zucchini fries drizzled with this savory, sweet and spicy sauce. Zucchini pieces are coated in panko crumbs and baked until crispy. I love the contrast of the crunchy outer coating and soft cooked zucchini. I also love that the zucchini skin maintains its beautiful green color while cooking.

A few people have been asking me what sweet chili sauce I use for my bang bang sauce. I finally remembered to take a photo!

(Update! I no longer have been able to find this sauce, but I’ve since tried quite a few other brands and they work just as well.)

Bang Bang Zucchini

Crunchy baked zucchini pieces are drizzled with bang bang sauce.

Ingredients:

  • 2 small zucchini, cut into bite-sized pieces (approximately 1-inch rectangles)

  • 2 tbsp sweet chili sauce (I bought mine from Asian grocery stores)
  • 1-2 tsp hot sauce (I used sriracha)
  • 1/4 cup light/low fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp honey

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400F. Dip zucchini pieces in egg and then roll in panko  a few times until fully coated and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 

2. Bake for about 15 minutes or until coating is a dark golden brown and crunchy. 

3. While zucchini is cooking, make the bang bang sauce. Add all ingredients into a small bowl and whisk until uniform and no mayonnaise lumps remain. Drizzle over finished zucchini.
