Chayote. It’s weird. It’s ugly.
Some say it’s a squash, some say it’s a fruit and some say it’s a vegetable. And…..even others say it is a gourd.
It’s sort of like a cucumber meets apple. It’s not all sloppy and mushy like eggplants or zucchini when cooked.
According to internet sources, and we all know they never lie, it’s quite the nutritious little thing. It is loaded with potassium. added plus
There is a rumor that McDonald’s used these in their apple pies because they were cheaper. I don’t really care if they did. I am just happy they fit into my low carb way of eating.
First to prepare any chayote dish, peel like a potato
You can do anything with them, make them sweet or make them savory.
This is how I made chayote that taste like fried apples
Take your peeled chayote
Cut it in half
Dice this bad boy
Tomorrow I am going to boil until tender, fry in a skillet and add herbs and garlic for a side dish
