We love this creative way to celebrate the healthy tastes of Halloween. Who would have thought we’d be recommending a recipe of brains, fingers, eyeballs and blood! Yet as grossed as you may be, these appetizers are refreshingly delicious. Enjoy in confidence this Halloween!

 

Cucumber Eyeballs:

GATHER:

Cucumber, sliced in big chunks, patted dry

Green olive, sliced

Tofutti cream cheese

natural red food coloring (made from beets)

toothpick

MAKE:

Apply a glob of cream cheese in the middle of the cucumber and stick the olive on top.

With a toothpick, carefully dip into food coloring to make lines that look like veins on the eyeballs.

Carrot Fingers:

GATHER:

1 bag baby carrots

small cutting knife

MAKE:

Carefully use the knife to cut out 3 lines in the middle of the “finger” for knuckles and carve out a fingernail at the thinnest point of the carrot.

Cauliflower Brains

GATHER:

1 head cauliflower, cut into florets, patted dry

natural red food coloring (beet-based)

toothpick

MAKE:

Using the toothpick, dip in coloring make squiggly lines for the brains.

Tombstone Chips:

GATHER:

1 bag corn tortillas

vegetable oil

MAKE:

*If you have a tombstone cookie cutter, this will come in handy. I didn’t so I just hand carved out one and used it as my base.

*Cut out tombstones from the tortillas.

*Heat oil in skillet on medium heat until hot. Place tortillas, batches at a time, into skillet and cook for 5 minutes, or until crispy. Drain oil on a paper towel.

*Place all your ingredients on a platter with a salsa-filled skull bowl and enjoy!
