Have you ever tried white goya?

Good morning everyone,

It's looking like we may see some rain off and on today. It'll clear up for a couple of days and then we are looking at cloudy skies on Saturday and more rain for Sunday and Monday. Highs all week will be between 31C and 33C. If it's not too wet on Sunday morning, I'm going to head for an outdoor run-if I can get it in, it'll be the first one this month.

Goya are the number one vegetable in my apartment at the moment-I think I've had goya champul (?) 3-4 times in the past 2 weeks. Goya are the go-to vegetable for Hiroshimans who are looking to keep their houses/apartments cool. Lots of people plant them outside their large ground floor windows and because they are quick-growing vines with large leaves, they're the perfect vegetable to use to create a natural curtain to keep the sun off your house and hopefully feel a little cooler in the summer.

And, on top of that, they grow goya which are a quite bitter vegetable, but taste pretty good in champul (?). However, last week I got a white one for the first time. Have you ever tried one?

They're pure white on the inside and outside and they're a lot less bitter than their green cousins. Next year, if you're planting goya in your garden and you're not a big fan of the bitter ones, give the white ones a try. Of course they're still bitter-they are goya after all...but they're tons less bitter and now I'm trying to think what other dishes I can make with them for next year...any ideas?

Have a great day!
