This shredded vegetable soup is creamy and full of nutritious vegetables. "Chayote" (mirliton squash) lends the comforting texture to this delicious soup. A typical ingredient of the Aztec and Mayan cuisine, this vegetable is high in potassium and low in carbohydrates. Try this one with spaghetti squash and other varieties of vegetables, too!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 carrots, peeled and finely shredded
  • 2 zucchini, finely shredded
  • 1 chayote, peeled and finely shredded
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 2 tablespoons MAGGI Instant Chicken Flavor Bouillon
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
