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.
  2. 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. ...

I over-cooked a zucchini a tad, but still good! I added a little sesame chicken and it was great!
