Chayote Squash with Jalapeno, fresh Herbs & Sesame Seeds

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Chayote Squash, peeled and cut lengthwise into wedges, roughly 16/squash
  • Oregano, fresh
  • Cilantro, fresh
  • Thyme, fresh
  • Extra virgin Avocado Oil
  • 1-2 tsp Jalapeno seasoning 
  • 2 T toasted Sesame seeds (if you are using pre-toasted, I suggest giving them a quick warm up in a hot pan for 10-20 seconds).

Instructions

  1. In briskly boiling salted water blanch Chayote for 3 minutes +/- (I prefer crunchy Chayote over soft). 
  2. Strain and place Chayote in the dish you plan to serve in. 
  3. From here on out this dish is all about end user freedom and preference. 
  4. Drizzle with Avocado Oil, add leaves of fresh picked herbs, Jalapeno seasoning and toasted Sesame seeds.
