Chayote is a crispy, slightly sweet vegetable. Vegetables that are shaped like pears can be easily combined with other vegetables.

We can consume chayote by stir-frying it, cooking it with coconut milk, making it salted, or even baking it.

In this recipe, our kitchen serves a combination of chayote and soy sprouts cooked with coconut cream.

Coconut cream will make the texture of the chayote and the sprouts dish become very thick and smell very good. You can use regular coconut milk if you have no coconut cream.

Chayote and Sprouts with Coconut Cream are usually served as side dishes. You can also serve it as a complement to bread, mashed potatoes, and pasta.

Let's see how to make this recipe!



  • 250 grams of chayote
  • 100 grams of soybean sprouts (You can also use Green Bean Sprouts)
  • 250 ml of coconut cream
  • 500 ml of water
  • 1 1/2 Kandis acid
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 lemongrass stick
  • Saute oil to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Sugar to
  • Pepper powder to taste

Puree Seasoning

  • 1 red chili (according to your taste)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 5 cloves of shallot
  • 1 galangal segment
  • 2 turmeric segments
  • 4 corianders or 2 teaspoons of coriander powder

How to cook

  1. Prepare the spices. Put ingredients for fine seasoning in the blender. Add two tablespoons of oil. Puree it.
  2. Then divide the chayote into two parts, rubbing the two parts together to remove the sap. Then peel and chop the chayote, then wash thoroughly until there isn't any sap left.
  3. Heat the oil.
  4. Saute the spices until fragrant, then add bay leaves, lemongrass that has been flattened, and Kandis acid.
  5. Then add chunks of chayote. Stir for a while.
  6. Add water. Then cook the chayote until it's cooked, but don't let the texture turn soft.
  7. Add sprouts.
  8. Then add coconut cream.
  9. Stir until evenly distributed, add pepper, salt, and sugar.
  10. Cook for about 3-5 minutes while continuing to stir, so that the texture of coconut cream is not broken.
  11. Lift up, then serve

We also have tips for arranging these presentations on the serving plate. This is so that the serving of chayote and sprouts can look more beautiful and appetizing.

Below is a method of serving that you can also use for other recipes that have gravy.

  • Prepare a serving plate that has a rather high curve, or you can use a bowl.

  • Take chunks of chayote, then arrange it on a plate.

  • Arrange sprouts on chunks of chayote.

  • If you are sure of its shape, you can add the thick gravy on the plate.

  • Pour the gravy gently onto chunks of chayote and sprout so that the shape you have arranged does not become damaged and messy.

You are most welcome my Dear 💚😊💚

Such a beautiful presentation, you nailed it here!

Do you know if chayote can also be used raw e.g. grated in salad or blended into a creamy soup?

Yeah I knew it, usually in here using peanuts sauce

Thanks for stopping by

What an awesome way to use chayote! I've only really had it so far in a slaw, but I'd love to try it this way, as well. It has a great texture to it, and seems quite versatile.

Coconut always became great combination for veggies.

Thanks for reading my post.


Thanks for sharing:)
