In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tbsp. oil until shimmering; add veggies and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown and fork-tender (2-4 min.); add garlic in last 1 min. of cooking. Season veggies with ½ of the salt and pepper. Move veggies to a large mixing bowl; cool to room temperature. Wipe out skillet with a paper towel and set aside. Stir rice, cornstarch, parsley, mint and zest into the vegetable mixture. Mix in hummus until mixture is homogenous. Divide mixture into 12 portions and shape into patties about 1/2" thick; dust each patty on both sides with cornmeal, pressing in lightly. Heat 2 tbsp. oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 of the fritters to the pan; cook until dark golden-brown and crispy on the edges, flipping once (about 4 min. per side). Move fritters to a warm platter and sprinkle with remaining salt. Repeat with remaining oil and patties. Let fritters stand for 5-10 min. before serving with desired garnishes and toppings.
