  • 2 chayotes, peeled and sliced
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 potato, peeled and shredded
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp chopped green onion
  • half a lemon
  1. Simmer chayote slices in 2 cups of salted water in a medium saucepan until tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Sauté onion and garlic in a large, non-stick saucepan until the onion is soft. Add the shredded potato and stir for a minute. Pour in vegetable stock, bring to a boil, and cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes, until thickened.
  3. Add the chayote and its cooking water to the stock, and using a hand (immersion) blender, puree the soup right in the pan. Stir and season to taste. Let simmer, uncovered, for about 5 more minutes. When ready to serve, ladle into bowls, sprinkle a few green onion slices on each and squeeze in some fresh lemon.
