Eating from Buddha’s Palm

Chayote may originally be native to Mexico, but it’s relatively popular here in #Hongkong too. It’s poetically called the 佛手瓜 or “Buddha’s hand gourd” in Cantonese. Here we have the perfect double boiled soup to counter the humid Spring weather: Chayote, carrots, longan, dried figs, and pork. Rich in vitamin C and amino acids, it helps to nourish and restore a tired body and soul. Our hosts at Little Adventures in Hong Kong have many more splendid recipes and stories to share.
