Ginisang Sayote Recipe

Ginisang Sayote or Sautéed Chayote is a simple recipe involving one of the members of the gourd family, chayote. The vegetable is sautéed with garlic, onion, and tomato (along with ground pork). It is customarily eaten with steamed white rice.

Chayote dishes are quick to prepare; this is the main reason why it is one of the regular vegetables in my kitchen. Aside from sautéing, you can also use it as an ingredient for chop suey and it can also be substituted for green papaya when cooking tinola.

Are there other dishes that you prepare using this vegetable? Can you tell us what these dishes are and how you prepare them?
