Baked Zucchini with Spicy Wheat Germ Crumbs

Some readers commented about the texture of wheat germ. Yes I do agree - Wheat Germ is not a substitute for panko or bread crumbs; but a healthier alternative. I use Wheat Germ as breading for fish to make these Cod Fish Sticks. I also sprinkle them on top of these Squash Cakes to crumb up the top; and atop some sliced zucchini when I roast the zucchini in the oven. Super-easy way to make some Baked Zucchini with Spicy Wheat Germ Crumbs.

First, cut the zucchini to medium- thin slices. Set aside on a baking dish. Mix some Japanese spice powder: Togarashi into the wheat germ crumbs. Set aside. Note: To spice it up further, add some red chili flakes into the wheat germ mixture.

Bake the sliced zucchini 375F for 15-20 mins.

At the halfway mark, sprinkle the wheat germ -Togarashi mixture over the zucchini and continue roasting till cooked.

This is certainly easy prep. (as short as 5 minutes) for a tasty appetizer or side. The rest? Leave it to the oven.
