Winter zucchini can be cooked with or without vegetables, as well as with ketchup, garlic, chili peppers, tomatoes, and even rice, canned fish, and beets. But it's important to remember that the skin of young zucchini is very thin and delicate, so they don't need to be stewed or boiled for a long time, otherwise, they will turn into mush.
