    I have to say...I love this recipe. You do need to refrigerate them, although I do crave them and don't always do that. Probably squeezing out the zucchini would help too. Very crispy though...That's what sets them apart.

    1. The longer you leave it in the fridge, the better. If you make the mix a day before and leave it a day sitting in the fridge, the patties will come out easier to cook. 2. The nonstick skillet is NOT optional, people! This makes a huge difference when cooking the falafel. 3. I think the use of a flour, an egg or even sesame seeds to help bring the chickpeas together and for the patty not to break is needed. Very flavorful and healthy! Definitely trying it again!
