Fried Zucchini

By Ange's Table

Hello! How are you?  Have you smiled yet today?

Stop now, think of what makes you happiest in this world.  What a beautiful smile you have.  😁  So glad I could bring you a moment of happiness today.

We had another rainy day at the campground recently.  I think it only rains on the weekends we go camping.  Really.  Every time.  Even if for only part of one day, it rains camping.  We actually kind of like it.  The rain forces me to stop.  Mr. Table took a nap, and I tried to watch a movie, and thought about what to cook for dinner.  Then I remembered I had zucchini in the refrigerator.  Score! Fried Zucchini has to be the best side with Oven Baked Ribs!  

Times like these make me so happy that we do our best to keep the pantry in the camper the same as at home.  We have a camper with a full kitchen so that I can cook our meals, so I want to be able to cook.  And not just burgers and dogs.  Anything that excites me that day, is what I want to eat. This rainy Saturday I wanted ribs and zucchini.  So glad I have BBQ Rub and BBQ Sauce here, along with spices, and flours.   Yay for a stocked pantry!

Fried Zucchini

  • 2 medium zucchini, cut into desired shapes
  • 2 tsp + 1 tsp Seasoned Salt Mix, plus more for sprinkling after frying
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup oat milk
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, dried
  • 1 Tbsp basil, dried
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cup oat flour
  • enough oil for frying

In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, milk and 1 tsp salt mix.

In a large bowl, combine oat flour, 2 tsp salt, parsley, basil and garlic powder.  Mix well.

Add cut up zucchini to the egg mixture, making sure to coat the zucchini in egg completely.

One at a time, take a piece of egg coated zucchini, and add it to the flour mixture.  Using a dry hand, coat well with flour mixture.  Press the zucchini into the flour to make sure it creates a nice coating.

Set breaded zucchini piece aside, repeat with all zucchini.  Let breaded zucchini rest before frying.  This helps the oat flour to absorb any moisture, and you will have a better end product. (If you find you have too much zucchini, you can lay the breaded zucchini in a single flat layer and freeze.  Once frozen solid, transfer to a freezer safe bag for easier storage.)

Heat oil in a deep pot over medium high heat.  Remember to only fill the pot 1/3 of the way with oil.  You do not want to have the oil overflow.  

Once oil is hot, about 350’F, drop a few pieces of zucchini at a time into the oil.  Fry 3-5 minutes until the outside is golden brown, and the zucchini cooks inside. Transfer to a paper towel to remove any excess oil.  Salt as soon as they come out of the frying oil.


You do not need to have a fancy kitchen to have amazing meals.  And you do not have to only eat hotdogs at the camp ground!

What will you make the next time you go camping.  I know your family will love these Fried Zucchini at home or at the campground.
