You’d never guess that when you combine ginger, garlic and tomato with peanut butter, sweet potatoes and greens, you get an amazingly healthy and delicious alternative to regular vegetable soup! You can also serve with rice for a more stew-like meal!
The chayote, also known as mirliton, is a member of the squash family. They’re also referred to as vegetable pear, christophene, cho-cho, huisquil, and guisquil in other parts of the world. Their thin skin is bumpy and pale green, and the crisp flesh is a very pale greenish-white. Its mild flavor adapts well to a variety of uses – raw in salads, stuffed with seafood or meat, or chopped into casseroles, soups or stews.
