Chayote Stir Fry

Serves 8

• 4 chayote squash

• 3 tbs olive oil

• 4 shallots, thinly sliced 

• 2 cloves garlic, minced

• Kosher salt, to taste

• Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  3. Add the sliced chayote squash to the skillet and continue to cook, tossing often, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve the chayote squash with a garnish of fresh herbs and/or Parmesan cheese, if desired.
