This was the first time I attempted to cook a chayote. First, here’s what it looks like next to a baseball for size reference:
The taste is comparable to zucchini, although perhaps slightly sweeter, and the flesh was firm even when cooked. I can’t pinpoint why I didn’t enjoy this as much as I expected, since zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables. There are many other recipes which use chayote though, and I will try one soon!
