  • 2 chayotes or cho cho
  • 1 large shallot sliced thin or a small red onion
  • 2 teaspoon of Italian seasonings or dried fine herbs
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon of onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1- tablespoon Grape seed oil or Olive oil more if needed
  • Parchment paper


  • Preheat the oven at 375 degrees and line a large roasting pan with parchment paper.
  • Wash chayote and thoroughly dry. Using a knife cut each chayote in half, remove the seed of each chayote and disregard. Cut the chayote halves in thin slices and put them in a large mixing bowl with the shallot or onion. Season with salt and pepper.
  • In a small bowl, mix the oil with the dry seasoning. Depending on the size of the chayotes you will need to adjust the oil measurement. Pour oil mixture on chayote halves and make sure all slices are well coated. Do not oversaturate slices because they will be soggy.
  • Carefully place the chayote halves onto the lined baking pan. Do not overcrowd the pan and leave enough space for proper roasting. If necessary use 2 pans.
  • Roast for 40 minutes or until crisp and golden and be sure to turn over half way through. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
  • Serve with your preferred main course.


Use parchment paper to line the pan. It will be easier to remove the chayote slices.
