Zucchini is a high-moisture vegetable and not too tough, which makes it perfect for stir-frying. If you like, feel free to spice up this easy zucchini stir-fry by adding 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of chili paste with the ginger.

Ingredients

  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or dry sherry

Steps to Make It

  1. Cut the ends off the zucchini, and cut diagonally into slices about 1/4-inch thick.

  2. Pre-heat a wok or skillet over medium-high heat until it is nearly smoking. Add the oil, swirling it around the pan.

  3. When the oil is hot, add the ginger and stir-fry until it is aromatic. Add the zucchini. Sprinkle the salt and sugar all over. Stir-fry for a minute, then stir in the rice wine or dry sherry.

  4. Stir-fry the zucchini until it turns dark green and is tender-crisp (about 3 minutes total). Serve hot.
