Sabi pa ni Nashman, this pack costs R$1 which is equivalent to 50 cents U.S. So medyo kapresyo siya ng binili kong sayote nitong linggo. Pero siyempre dito sa atin, hindi ganyan kaganda ang packaging kasi wala tayong concept ng packaging hehe.
Now if you, like us, are the “slice and dump the sayote in a boiling water” kind of cook and want to improve your cooking skills, you might want to try the recipe for ensalada chuchu which we are putting below. Yes, it’s a Brazilian recipe and we copied it from Bonnie Hamre.
Hah! If you thought this is not a blog where you can find recipes, you should think again. We are going to give In Our Kitchen a friendly competition!
Ensalada Chuchu/Sayote Salad
6 chayotes or cucumbers, peeled and seeded
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 thinly sliced onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
6 teaspoons chopped parsley
1/4 cup olive oil
5 tablespoons while vinegar
Boil the chayote or cucumbers for 10 minutes, no more. Drain, place in a bowl, then dress with salt, pepper, garlic, onion, parsley, oil and vinegar. Mix well and refrigerate before serving.
QUIZ: Ano ang brand name ng Brazilian sayote na kinodak ni Nashman? Ililibre ko ng free lunch (with boiled sayote as the dish of course) ang makakasagot ng tama 🙂
