Papaya joy

We have learned to love Green Papaya Salad. We have adapted shredded green papaya to make coleslaw. Today at church, the “lunch providers” brought a soup/stew based on chicken broth, chicken and with chopped papaya chunks in it.

“Hrmmmmm,” I says to myself. “Kinda squash-like. I likey!”

So tonight I took some green papaya, sauteed it with green pepper, onion, garlic, cherry tomato , a squirt of fresh lemon juice and spices, then finished it with a bit of steaming in chicken broth. Next time I think I’ll incorporate some of the pineapple I canned last year.
