Ridge gourd or Luffa

I did not know I have been eating luffa all these years! This is a really mild vegetable and when it is still immature has no fibrous tissue at all.

After scraping off the skin, and cutting it up, I pressure cook it. Even though the flesh gets fork-mashed the seeds don't. They are not hard but just really thin and flat and the twins don't like them. So into the blender and food cubes. Because it is a really watery vegetable I mix it in with lentils or bean mix.
