Christophene(Chayote) Pattie

This is one version of a christophene(chayote) pattie that I did. Christophene takes on whatever flavours are added to it. It is a very adaptable food.

Christophene(Chayote) Pattie

Christophene(Chayote) Pattie

2 cups christophene(grated)
1/2 onion
5 cloves garlic
3 seasoning peppers, preferably red(see note)
2 sprigs parsley
1/2 cup flour
Sea salt
Coconut oil/Olive oil

Put grated christophene into a bowl.  Grate onion and garlic and add to the bowl.  Chop peppers and parsley and add to bowl.  Mix well.  Add flour and sea salt. Mix well and form in to balls.  Heat coconut oil or olive oil in a frying pan.  Flatten the balls and place in hot oil. Turn when the edges start appearing brown.  When the other side is brown, remove from frying pan.  Serve and enjoy!

Note: Seasoning peppers are a small type of pepper that is not hot like scotch bonnet or cayenne. it has a slight sting when you place it against your tongue but the sting quickly goes away. It comes in red and green colors and gives a wonderful flavour to the food.  If you don't have seasoning pepper you can use bell pepper(or what we call sweet pepper here in Dominica) instead.
