    Chayote Squash

    Primal Fuel
    Can someone tell me about this, how to cook etc... i keep seeing it pop up random places. it looks like a green butt hahahah. the'low carb forums' seem to make mock apple stuff with it but i know it has to be usedfor more than that!


    and it is really low in carbs for sqaush, good potassium, aminos, zinc so i need some options!

    chop it roughly, cover in cream and chicken broth in a casserole dish. Top with cheese and bake until cheese is crispy gooey. Voila, squash au grautin. Has a sweet flavor to it, thanks to the chayote.

    Do you need to peel it - or does the skin soften to an edible degree?

    I'm pretty sure chayote and mirliton refer to the same thing. My stepmom makes ballin' stuffed mirlitons for Thanksgiving (shrimp, celery, I don't know what else). You could try just cutting them in half, scooping them out, stuffing and baking until soft.

    My mother in law peeled hers, I think the skins don't soften quickly enough.
