“Black bean sauce, ginger and thai chilies make this zucchini a perfect side dish to go along with any Chinese-style main dish. Add eggplant and snow peas served with a side of fried rice for an exotic weekday meal” - by Arci
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Heat the sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir fry the onion and garlic in the hot oil until the onion begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Stir in the black bean sauce and chile peppers, and continue stir frying about 30 seconds to coat the onions with the black bean sauce.
- Stir in the zucchini, ginger, soy sauce, and water. Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook for 15 minutes until the zucchini is soft, stirring occasionally.

"Quick way to prepare zucchini. I was unable to find Thai chilis so I used jalapenos and soem red pepper flakes. The black bean sauce was really good in this, but the extra water was a bit much. The zu..." See morecchini sheds it's own water when cooking so I don't think this much water, if any at all is needed.. It diluted the yummy black bean taste, so I added a bit more at the end. I topped with a few sesame seeds for some exgtra sesame taste and texture"
