Recipe: Chayote Squash

When Ken went to the store I asked him to pick up some more fresh fruits and vegetables and even some we hadn't tried before so I was excited when he came back with this squash because I've never made it or eaten it before. 

I asked a few friends on fb if they knew any good recipes for it but they were no help..LOL So I decided to make mine with some onion.

So I looked online and found a few ways to make it but no real good recipes so I made my own way to make it.

First I peeled and diced it into large chunks.

Then I boiled it for a few minutes to get it soft.

In the mean time I diced a yellow onion and sauteed it in a little butter.

I added a little more butter when I added the squash.

When the Chayote was softer, I drained it and added it to the onions and sauteed them for about 10 more minutes until cooked all the way through. I added salt, pepper and season salt to this and served it with the rest of the dinner I made. I came out really good. It has a mild apple/pear flavor but it's very mild and this would soak up and flavors you added to the pan to cook it in. 


  1. I hadn't heard of this one before. Looks good though :)

  2. A first for me too

  3. Sounds awesome. The best recipes are the ones you come up with yourself.

  4. Oh yum! I've never heard of that either!

  5. Shelley Munro- First time for me too.
