Meet the Mysterious
Chayote Squash!
WHAT IS IT? Originating in Central America, the Chayote squash is a mildly flavoured gourd, that is generally eaten like a vegetable although it is technically a fruit! The entire plant of the chayote is edible (roots, stems, seeds and leaves), but today, we only have the fruit for you : )

HOW DO I EAT IT? Chayote is very versatile: you can eat it raw (as a 'slaw'), roast it in the oven (like this), or add it to soup (try this pot of deliciousness)!
