Ever heard of Chayote Squash? If the answer is no, then you are missing out.  

I grew up eating this fruit in Honduras. And my favorite way to prepare it is baked, like a twice-baked potato. Here is how I do it:

1. Cut in to halves and steam until tender (and you can easily pierce with fork)
2. Scoop out the meaty inside and put in a separate bowl, making sure to leave the shell intact.
3. Mash up the scooped out meat, add a little shredded cheese, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
4. Spoon the mix into the chayote shells, top with extra cheese, and bake for a few minutes, until cheese is melted. 
5. Enjoy.

It is delicious, and a great source of vitamin C!!

    I just bought one and haven’t figured out what to do yet. I may have to veganize something similar to his, though.
