  • 2 zucchini sliced into ¼ inch thick rounds
  • cup almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup quinoa flour (preferably toasted - see note) or gluten free flour
  • ¾ cup Quinoa Flakes
  • ½ cup crumbled rice crackers OR panko breadrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • Olive oil spray

Sriracha Dipping Sauce

  • cup Greek Yogurt or tofu mayo.
  • 1 - 3 teaspoons Siracha to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 3 cloves minced garlic


  • Preheat oven to 425. Place a wire rack on top of a baking sheet.
  • Combine almond milk and lemon juice and set aside.
  • Place quinoa flour, quinoa flakes, rice crackers, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, sea salt and black pepper in a food processor. Pulse until smooth.
  • Dredge zucchini wedges in quinoa and cracker mixture. (Only a little bit will stick) Dip in milk mixture and then recoat with the quinoa mixture. Spray or brush with olive oil. Place on wire rack and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown.

Sriracha Dipping Sauce

  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until well combined. Store in the refrigerator until chilled.


Never toasted quinoa flour? It’s really simple but completely optional. I do it because I love the nutty and less earthy taste that it brings out. All you need to do is line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the flour out to about ¼ inch deep. (I do a box at a time.) Bake on 220 degrees for 2 ½ hours. Allow to cool completely and then store in a sealed container in the refrigerator or freezer.
