Mix the egg whites and the baking powder and beat with an electric mixer until a consistency is very similar to meringue.
Mix the cornstarch, Parmesan cheese, spices and salt.
Cut the vegetables into medium-thick sticks (approximately 2 cm)
Pass the vegetables through the cornstarch mixture and then the egg shake, aided by a fork (or a wooden toothpick, or toothpicks) and then by panko, put on a baking tray with buttered and oiled paper. Once placed, drizzle a little oil on top and bake for 25 to 30 minutes in an oven preheated to 180 degrees Celsius.
