what is CHAYOTE SQUASH?

sddefault 100

What is chayote? Chayote is a fruit, but in the same way that squash and cucumber are fruit; it'll never win a fruit contest. Chayote, aka choko or mirliton, is completely edible cooked or raw,
from the skin to the flesh to the seed in the center. Sayote has a neutral flavor, so this "fruit" needs a lot of seasoning. It's an ideal ingredient for it's texture more than it's flavor, like jicama
and young green jackfruit. You can cook chayote recipes by boiling, baking, or frying in a skillet. I like to slice chayote thin and saute with curry flavors for a quick side dish. It's also a good ingredient
for baking and stuffing as you might a bell pepper, or simply pickle chayote and serve it in a salad.

What you need to Cook a Spicy Chayote Recipe

1 CHAYOTE thinly sliced
1 ONION chopped
2-3 GARLIC cloves
HOT PEPPER as desired
1-2 Tbsp CURRY SEASONING
SALT to taste
OIL for sauteing

How Cook Chayote in a Skillet

Buy chayote that is smooth, not always easy to do, but the smoother the better.
You can eat the entire chayote: skin, flesh, and center seed. Peel or unpeel the chayote, whichever you prefer. When peeling a chayote, you'll find the
inner juice to be annoyingly slippery/sticky. Why fool with that? I leave the skin on and eat it. I paid for it. And it's easier.
Slice the chayote thinly. Chayote has a dense apple like texture that holds up very well under heat, so it takes a bit to soften up when cooked, so slice very thinly
if you like your chayote less crispy crunchy.
Heat oil in a skillet and add onion and garlic.
Add fresh hot pepper if desired.
Saute for several minutes.
Add seasoning and cook about 2 minutes more.
Add sliced chayote, mix well, and saute for a minute.
Add a small amount of water, cover, and simmer to desired tenderness. Add more water as needed, but never too much.

That's it!
Give Chayote a try and let me know what you think, and bon appétit!
