Green Chile Pesto with Roasted Chayote Squash



Ingredients :

  • 6 serrano peppers
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • unpeeled
  • 1 poblano pepper
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro with stems
  • ½ bunch fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • 3 chayote squash
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 lime
  • juiced
  • ⅓ cup crumbled soft goat cheese
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin seeds
  • or to taste (Optional)
  • Methods :

  • Heat a dry skillet over medium-high heat. Place serrano chiles and garlic in the hot skillet. Cook until blistered and browned on the outside and slightly softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Roast poblano over an open flame until blackened all over; wrap up in a paper towel to let steam.
  • Place serranos and garlic in a bowl; let cool until safe to handle. Peel the garlic and remove stems and seeds from serranos and poblano.
  • Place cilantro and parsley in a blender. Add peppers, garlic, salt, and olive oil. Pulse on and off, scraping down the sides if necessary, until puree is fairly smooth and slightly coarse. Store pesto in a bowl until ready to use.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  • Halve and quarter chayote lengthwise. Remove seeds and cut into 1-inch pieces. Place on a lined baking sheet. Toss with olive oil and salt.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until chayote is just barely fork-tender and lightly browned, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and add lime juice, 2 to 3 heaping spoonfuls of pesto, and goat cheese. Transfer salad to a serving dish and garnish with pumpkin seeds.
