While all vegetables have a high water content, courgettes have an even higher percentage than most and will therefore collapse if cooked too long, becoming slithery and unpleasant. The best method is to use their internal water to good effect, as here. This is a good way of cooking many similar vegetables, including mangetout or sugar snap peas – and spinach.
