Gluten Free Crusted Eggplant & Zucchini Sticks

Preparation Time: 15 minutes|  Cooking Time: 15 minutes | Serves: 5 people


  • 1 Eggplant
  • 2 Zucchini
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1/2 cup Rice Flour
  • 1 Tbs Dill
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 3 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2/3 cup Chickpea Flour
  • 5 tsp Oregano, dry


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cut eggplant and zucchini into 3-4 inch long, one inch wide sticks, place into a colander and rinse with cold water, then cover with a tea towel and set aside.
  • Cover the bottom of a baking sheet with silicon or waxed paper and set aside.
  • Place three small bowls on the counter. Measure the rice flour and sea salt into the first bowl, the water into the second bowl, and the chickpea flour, garlic powder, oregano and sea salt into the third bowl.
  • Thoroughly mix the rice flour and the chick pea flour mixtures, in their separate bowls. To coat the veggie sticks, take one at a time, and bury it in the rice flour mixture, using a teaspoon to scoop up the rice flour and thoroughly cover each piece. Holding the coated vegetable gently with two fingers, quickly dip it into the water, shake off the few extra drops of water, then bury it under the chickpea flour mixture.
  • Use another teaspoon to scoop the chickpea coating around the veggie stick, to ensure even coating. Leave each veggie stick in the batter, soaking up the chickpea coating, while you start the next piece. Once each new piece is buried in the chickpea coating, take the previous piece out, and place onto the waxed paper on the baking sheet. Repeat this process until all the vegetable pieces are coated, and on the tray, ready for baking.
  • Place tray into preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove tray from oven, use a spatula to flip each piece, then return to oven for another 10 minutes, or until browned.
