Zucchini overload tends to happen this time of year. After you’ve made every gratin and faux noodle dish and garlic saute you can think of, consider these little falafel-like balls. Fresh mint and crunchy pistachio give them a flavor and texture all their own, and you could serve them with spaghetti and a tomato sauce, or stuffed into a pita with pickled beets, hummus and some capers.
These balls freeze well. To reheat, slowly fry them from frozen in a pan with a little olive oil.
