Again, this week , I'd like to share more choko/chayote stuff.......
This vege comes from Central America and is a good scorce of vit.C and fibre.
We like it sliced and cooked on the b.b.q .... or .... boiled and eaten with butter,salt and pepper ....delish...
When we have an overabundance of chokos, I try to find different ways to prepare them.
This week I made soup with just chokos and herbs and server it with rice.....
|some basic flavours|
|peeling under water|
|drain and mash...you can make he soup thinner by adding|
back some of the drained flavoured water
|I kept it thick and added some cooked garlic rice|
Mum and Hubby liked it......
Now for Dessert
|Just cover chayote with water and add sugar|
bring to boil and cook until soft
|drain and mash|
|put into containers and add jelly crystals directly|
into hot mixture .. stir thoroughly
|put in fridge to set|
|a lovely firm dessert....goes well on it's own |
or with any topping of choice
The water that is drained from the chokos can be used a drink...........hot or cold....sweet or savory.
Again.......Happy Easter to all.
