|Gallbladder and aorta diet. Roasted/Baked Chayote (Mirliton)|
The Gallbladder friendly and cardiovascular health supportive roasted chayote recipe will satisfy both demands.
Chayote is a squash originally native to Central America, however the plant is grown worldwide today as an important food source.
Nutrition-wise chayote is rich in Potassium, Vitamin C, Magnesium and B-6.
Vitamin C and B-6 are vital compounds for support of gallbladder and cardiovascular health.
Chayote is popular across the Gulf Coast region in the U.S. and is also known as 'milliton' in Louisiana.
Wash chayote thoroughly and slice into longitundinal halves. Scoop out the seed from each half with a spoon, leaving a small depression area in the squash for the spices.
Place sliced chayote in a glass baking dish and add a small amount of unrefined coconut oil or avocado oil in each scooped out area. Chop fresh garlic and again, add in the depressional area of the chayote halves. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika.
Bake for 45 minutes at 350F and allow to cool.
Serve with a mild pepper sauce or tamari.
Enjoy and cheers to a life free from gallbladder pain!
