Ingredients

1 cup corn flakes cereal, crushed to ¼ cup
¾ cup cheese-flavored snack crackers, crushed to ½ cup
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
2 egg whites, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons water

1 cup pizza sauce

Directions

  1. In a shallow dish, stir together corn flakes cereal, cheese-flavored snack crackers, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and cayenne pepper (if desired).
  2. In another small bowl, stir together egg whites and water. Dip zucchini, cauliflower and broccoli into egg mixture. Roll in crumb mixture, gently pressing crumbs onto vegetables.
