Chayote squash has so many names mirliton, vegetable pear, chook, chocho, choko and much more. According to one of the books I read, over 30 names around the world has this fruit-vegetable. Actually botanically it is fruit! It has neutral flavor and pairs well with so many ingredients!

HELP PLEASE! I’m about to have my first experience with chayote squash. I was super excited about it until I realized that I don’t have a clue what to do with it! Someone recommended it while I was at the market last weekend and all I remember her saying was that it was delicious, I couldn’t even remember the name of it without a quick google search. I have SO MANY QUESTIONS! What should I do with this? How should I eat it? Sweet or savory? Skin or no skin? Should it be firm or soft? Thanks to anyone who can point my in some sort of direction with this new produce. Wait, is it a fruit or vegetable? Like I said, So many questions ❓
Chayote tacos, anyone?
I adore the process of crafting beautiful food, making sure to balance color, flavor and texture to create a whole experience. I was debating what vegetables to add to my chayote sauté, and realized the way I cook, dye yarn, paint, and play music are all deeply rooted in the way color makes me *feel*, and the joy I sense it will bring others. I’m grateful that I find myself getting to play at the intersections of color and joy frequently!
Comment down below where you feel that joy — for me it’s in my kitchen when I’m elbow-deep in garlic or the dye pot! (And for those curious cats, Chayote is a strange little veggie from the gourd family, and tastes like a cucumber/squash/potato with a slightly lemony taste. It’s really hard to describe. Try it! It’s great in soup and of course...🌮. For a quick meal, sauté 4-5 cloves of garlic in oil for a minute before adding in thin slices of chayote - you can eat the whole plant, so I chop it lengthwise into strips. Sauté the chayote, throwing in a pinch of salt and fresh pepper. I like mine a bit crisp, so cook for about 10 minutes for loading them up onto your tacos! I could happily subsist on this meal forever.)
What to do when it's the first day of Spring, but snow is in the forecast? Welp, we chose soup to help bridge the gap between the two seasons.
We made a light, veggie packed, sofrito-based, chicken soup. We got a little fancy, and spiralized the crispy chayote squash and speckled zucchini to make "noodles", but both would still be just as good chopped into bite-sized cubes. To the chayote squash and zucchini, we also added onion, carrots, celery, bell pepper, and potatoes from this week's share. This is a great way to utilize what veggies you still have.

CHAYOTE 🍐😋. I got quite a few DMs asking me what was the other veggie I added in my enchiladas last night, it was a chayote. If you haven’t tried it before I suggest you do, I love this stuff! It’s technically a fruit & a squash 🤷🏽♀️.. & it looks like a green little shit pursing its lips, LOL!! It’s low carb + keto friendly 🙌🏽 I’ve tried these in Hispanic and Filipino dishes & love them in both ❤️ I’ve also seen people substitute chayote for potatoes or even apples in recipes, imagine keto apple pie?!
