Cook
Serves 6people
Ingredients
1
tbsp butter
1
medium sweet onion, about 1/2 pound, peeled and sliced
2
tbsp cider vinegar
2
tbsp honey
1
tbsp prepared mustard
1
cup mayonnaise

stick Zucchini
3
medium zucchini, unpeeled, cut into 3"-long stick
1
tbsp salt
1
cup coarse, dry bread crumbs (e.g., panko)*
scant 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1

olive oil spray
1/2
cup egg substitute; or 2 large eggs; or 3 egg whites, lightly beaten
For a gluten-free version of this recipe, use gluten-free bread crumbs.
Directions
1.
To make the dip: Melt the butter in a medium frying pan over moderate heat, and add the sliced onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften, then caramelize. This should take between 10 and 15 minutes. The lower the heat, the longer it takes, but the less likely you are to burn the onions.
2.
Once the onions are a medium brown, remove from the heat and add the vinegar.
3.
Place the onions and vinegar into a small food processor. Add the honey and mustard, and process or blend until smooth.
4.
Add the mayonnaise and salt and pepper to taste, stirring to combine. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
5.
To make the zucchini sticks: Place the zucchini sticks in a colander over a bowl and sprinkle with the tablespoon of salt. Let the zucchini drain for 1 hour or longer; rinse and pat dry.
6.
Combine the Panko, Parmesan, and pizza seasoning; set aside.
7.
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment, and spray the parchment with olive oil.
8.
Dredge sticks a few at a time in the egg, then roll in the crumb mixture. Place the sticks on the prepared baking sheet.
9.
Bake sticks for 12 minutes, turn over, and bake for an additional 8 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.
10.
Serve immediately, with sweet onion dip.
