Equipment Needed For This Recipe

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use cups and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American US customary, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, that you can mix cup measurements with weighted measures, but never mix US customary/imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, liters, etc.,).

Recipe Tips

  • Zucchini naturally contains a lot of natural moisture, so it can be challenging to get crispy results when baking it in the oven.
  • For this reason, the best results are achieved from small, firm zucchini in this recipe.
  • You may also want to remove any large or excess seeds prior to dredging each piece in the seasoned breadcrumbs.
