2smallfirm zucchinihalved and cut into ¼-inch thick slices
2tbspextra virgin olive oil
½tspred pepper flakes
18oz cancrushed tomatoes
¼cupfresh basilthinly sliced
Sea salt and black pepperto taste
Preheat the oven to 400°F and place a metal rack inside a large, rimmed baking sheet. Set aside.
In a pie pan or shallow bowl, combine the almond flour, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, and Italian seasoning. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Set aside.
In a second pie pan or shallow bowl, gently whisk together the eggs and water until frothy and set aside.
Add the freshly grated Parmesan cheese to a third bowl and set aside.
Dredge zucchini pieces in the seasoned almond flour before dipping into the egg mixture. Allow excess egg to drain off each piece before transferring to the bowl with the Parmesan cheese. Turn to evenly coat each piece of zucchini before transferring to the prepared rack. Season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.
Place baking sheet into preheated oven and roast until golden and crisp, around 20-25 minutes. Flip the fries once halfway through the cooking time.
While the zucchini is roasting, combine olive oil, garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, and tomato paste in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until the garlic is fragrant, around 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.
Reduce heat and add the crushed tomatoes and cook until bubbly and slightly reduced, around 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the fresh basil and parsley. Transfer to a serving dish and keep warm.
