A winter stew that gives an introduction to long beans and chayote squash. Learn to use more new vegetables; they're good for you.
Step 1: Base ingredients
Coarsely chop two onions, two serrano chilis, and a handful of garlic.
Add the onions and chilis to a hot oiled pot, and stir until the onions start to soften. Reserve the garlic to add later so more of its flavor will come through at the end. (Alternatively, add the garlic now if you want it to be extra-subtle.)
