A side dish like Roasted Chayote is so easy to make that you will ask yourself why you were making all the fuss about finding another vegetable to add to your menu. This recipe is a healthy dish you can make without fussing.
Chayote is also known as mirlitons, vegetable pear, chocho, sayote, christophine etc… Chayote is very low in calories; contain no saturated fats or cholesterol. It is a rich source of dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins.
Roasted Chayote is a dish that facilitates cooking. The reason is because if you roasting a meat dish for example that takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour to cook, you will be right on target. The only thing left to do is to synchronize cooking time for all dishes. That’s simple right!
What about having the variety that Roasted Chayote adds to your meals? It is always great to find another vegetable that can be incorporated in many forms in your diet. I personally love vegetables. Therefore having another type of veggies to roast is ideal.
I am accustomed to eating chayote in a veggies stew or meat stew and with Roasted Chayote and after making this recipe there is certainly room for more meal ideas. You can add Herbes de Provence or Italian Seasoning to make it simple.
Roasting Chayote or Roasted Mirliton can be served as an appetizer or a side dish. An ideal and healthy dish.
