A Little "Kick" Is Better Than "Bland"

When I first made chayote soup on Day 223 of A Veggie Venture's first year of vegetable experimentation, I'd been warned that chayote could be mild-verging-on-bland. But a couple of days before, I found Day 221's Sautéed Chayote Squash quite lovely. I wrote, "With just salt, I found them delicious, just as is, simple, spare and entirely refreshing."

But the soup on Day 223? Bland was the descriptive word – though not unpleasantly bland. This soup wasn't without flavor; instead it was delicate and spare, the simplest of the simple. It was good.

But bland isn't my style. Hence I'm pointing your chayote vision to a newer recipe, the wonderful Chayote Soup with a Kick.
