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.

If you are looking for a custard without eggs and added sugar, you may try this recipe.

  1. Put all the ingredients into a large pan.
  2. Heat gently, stirring with a wooden spoon until the custard is thickened, before any lumps form.
  3. Set aside.
  4. Eat hot or cold.
