Sauteed Bottle Gourd and Tomato (serves 2)

Sauteed Bottle Gourd and Tomato
The bottle gourd came from my parents' garden in Maine and the tomatoes came from the garden of my friends Karen and Jim. I did not remove the seeds from the bottle gourd since they are still immature.

Sauteed Bottle Gourd and Tomato (serves 2)


1 Tbsp canola oil (may use another type of oil that you have or prefer)
1 Tbsp grated ginger
1 large garlic clove, smashed, chopped
1 bottle gourd (about 3 1/2 lbs), peeled sliced into bite size
2 vine ripe tomatoes, cut each tomato into 6 slices
About 2 Tbsp soy sauce
About 2 tsp Broth Base & Seasoning (chicken flavored)
1/2 tsp sugar
2 small bunch scallion, cut into 1 inch lengths


Heat a large pan over high heat. Pour in oil once the pan is hot. Add ginger and garlic and saute about 30-45 seconds. Avoid burning the garlic. Add gourd and saute about 5 minutes or until the gourd slices are a little translucent. Add tomatoes and season with soy sauce, broth seasoning and sugar. Cook about a minute, add scallion and turn off heat.
