Chayote is a type of pear-shaped fruit, with slightly wrinkled skin. To prepare it for the soup, simply peel off the skin, slice lengthwise and remove the seeds. Do be careful when you peel the chayote, as it will become sticky and slightly slippery. Sliced chayote is great for stir fry with bean vermicelli as well!
I got to know of chayote a couple of years ago, and I was really glad to have tried cooking chayote in soups because it’s so sweet naturally that my toddler loves the soups!

For this soup, I also love to add in honey date 蜜枣. For a Cantonese style boiled soup, you can boil the soup longer, for around 3 hours. Otherwise, 2 hours should be enough.
