“Want to be daring and try something new? Give these a try. This was my first taste of Chayotes and I love them. They have a light fresh taste, a bit sweet and the texture somewhere between a squash and a pear. This includes directions to prepare them in advace.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F with racks in upper and lower thirds.
  2. Wearing protective gloves, halve chayotes lengthwise and discard seeds. Peel, then cut lengthwise into 1-inch wedges. Toss with oil and 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Divide between 2 large 4-sided sheet pans.
  3. Roast 45 minutes. Divide garlic between pans, then continue to roast, turning occasionally, until chayotes are golden brown on edges, about 10 - 15 minutes more. Season with salt.
  4. Cooks’ note:
  5. Chayotes can be roasted 5 hours ahead and kept, loosely covered with foil, at room temperature. Reheat in a preheated 350°F oven (about 15 minutes).
