Sometimes we bought the typical ingredients and we act like robots. How many times have you see around and try new ingredients?
This recipe has a special ingredient; chayote (Sechium edule), which is versatile, and you can add it to your savoury and sweets recipes.
The chayote is a pale-green, pear-shaped fruit which is eaten as a vegetable. Several important nutrients can be found in chayote, for example fiber, vitamin C (antioxidant), potassium and calcium.
