Chayote Stir-Fry

I was at Whole Foods earlier this week trying to hunt down some Rhubarb... Whole Foods does a fantastic job of setting up their shelves and providing the consumer with information on each of the products they are offering.
Because of this beautiful display (see below) I noticed a funny looking veggie called a Chayote. It looked like a green bum. I mean look at this thing! So funny looking I had to buy it.
I also had some vermicelli noodles that I was dying to cook as well... so why not make a little stir fry with my green Chayote. It tastes pretty neutral - the texture is similar to an asian apple-pear, fresh, watery and crisp but light. 

Chayote Stir-Fry
Serves 1 person
  • 1 Chayote chopped up
  • 1/4 cup peppers - chopped
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 1/4 cup broccoli
  • 3 cloves diced garlic
  • General Tsao's sauce from Trader Joes
  • Vermicelli noodles - how ever many you want to eat
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock

  1. Soak the noodles for either 10 minutes in cold water, or 2 minutes in hot water
  2. Dice up and mix up your veggies and garlic, pop them into a frying pan and sautee those suckers for about 5 minutes
  3. Add in your sauce and chicken stock, I like a lot of sauce so I added about half a jar
  4. Sautee that all together for another 5 minutes
  5. Add noodles, and cook for another 5 minutes or so
  6. Plate and serve. Pretty simple yet tasty!
