- Drain chickpeas and place in a large bowl. Use the back of a fork to roughly mash chickpeas. Grate zucchinis and squeeze to release any liquid. Add to chickpeas along with fresh herbs, garlic, parmesan, egg and flour. Mix well to combine. Add feta and season with salt and pepper. Gently combine as to not break up the cubes of feta.
