Observations:

How long can I keep zucchini croquettes?
You can keep them 3/4 days in the refrigerator. Leave them at room temperature for a few minutes before serving them or warm them slightly in the oven at 350°F (180°C) for 10 minutes.

Can I freeze zucchini croquettes before cooking and cook them later?
Yes, let them thaw completely before cooking to prevent too much water.

Can I fry zucchini croquettes?
Yes, pour a drizzle of oil in a large pan and, once hot, add the zucchini croquettes. If you prepare them in a pan, we advise you to make flat pancake-style meatballs for more even cooking.

What can I use instead of mint for zucchini croquettes?
You can use other aromatic herbs such as basil, thyme, coriander or parsley.

Can I eat the zucchini croquettes cold?
Of course. They will also be perfect as an appetizer or to take away for lunch break or a pic nic!

Can I reheat zucchini croquettes in the microwave?
Yes, 30/40 seconds will be enough!
