Feeling under the weather? This hearty soup made with sayote, malunggay, and red rice will make you feel better in no time. Sayote is also an anti-inflammatory and power packed with immunity-boosting vitamin C. As an added trivia, did you know that the sayote or chayote was brought to the Philippines via Mexico where it was originally planted? It is a member of the squash family but it is more commonly known as a vegetable pear.
