We have made saucy vegetables before, but this recipe is really tasty! You can use it as a side dish for potatoes, baked yams, grilled sweet potatoes or the plainest brown rice. It will go great with just about anything and it's very simple and easy to make!
2 large chayotes, peeled and cut in pieces lengthwise
1/2 Bell pepper (either red or green)
1 plum tomato, coarsely chopped
1/4 tsp. Italian Seasoning
salt to taste
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tsp. sweet paprika powder
1/4 cup crushed tomatoes
1 1/2 cups water
In a saucepan, put all your ingredients and let them simmer till the chayote slices are tender, about 30 minutes. Test for tenderness by pricking them with the tip of a knife or with a fork.
