    About this recipe: I like to serve these crispy baked courgette chips as a starter with a little fresh lemon juice squeezed over the top. You could also serve with aïoli for dipping.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 2 medium courgettes, cut into .5cm slices
    • 100g dried breadcrumbs
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    • 2 egg whites

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 240 C / Gas mark 9.
    2. In one small bowl, stir together the breadcrumbs, oregano, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Place the egg whites in a separate bowl. Dip courgette slices into the egg whites, then coat the breadcrumb mixture. Place on a greased baking tray.
    3. Bake for 5 minutes in the preheated oven, then turn over and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, until browned and crispy.

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

    The crumb mixture was tasty, but the chips themselves never crisped, making a weird mushiness. - 08 Feb 2011

    Try salting the sliced courgette first to remove moisture then rinse and dry before starting the recipe - 02 Aug 2012
