Have you tried chayote? This squash hails from Central America and is a delicious alternative to zucchini or butternut squash. This recipe will show you how easy it is to prepare chayote.
A few notes:
- Chayote can be found at most grocery stores especially Asian grocery stores.
- Once peeled, chayote releases a white liquid called sap which might dry out your hands and difficult to grip. It can easily be washed off or you can wear gloves when preparing this dish.
- Chayote is naturally sweet which makes it all the more enjoyable.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Since it has high water content, the texture might not be as enjoyable after 2 days. Best served immediately.
