So Halloween looms and although, personally I am not exactly sure why we celebrate Halloween by dressing up and begging for lollies, my 2 kids get so excited for this “auspicious” occasion, that I usually get into the spirit…eventually!
Fear not, plant based mums! Here are my top recipes that will put a smile (or grimace) on your kids faces. Read on for tips on vegan candy ideas!
These are my Top 6 Halloween Recipes
Monster Meatball Eyes
These are the creepiest meatballs ever! The blood isn’t real, but the thought of gobbling down a monster eyeball can frighten anyone. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Made with our Traditional Burgers and spicy ketchup.
Pitta Pizza Skulls
For last minute party ideas, how about these spooky 4-ingredient Skull Pita Pizzas, made with our crispy nuggets and melted vegan cheese? Beware, the longer you look at the faces, the scarier they become… Nightmares here we come!
Sausage Zombie Mummies
Get creepy and cute this Halloween with these shockingly delicious vegan Sausage Mummies! Prepare to put on good Halloween horror show – 100% plant-based. Find out how to wrap these up in the kitchen with our favourite Fry’s Traditional or Braai-Style Sausages.
Gory guts galore! Nothing like a bit of baked beetroot and Fry’s Veggie Mince to bring brain slime to life. We dare you to hide it in secret locations around the house – guaranteed to give a good fright!
Frankenstein Falafel Subs
Made with our Quinoa and Falafel Burgers, and filled with a creamy, bloody beetroot-tahini sauce, these filling baguettes are the greatest science experiment brought to life, after the real Frankenstein of course. Stuff with carrots, spinach, olives, sun dried tomatoes and artichokes for a delicious Halloween party meal.
And wash it all down with this: Monster Eyes and Green Slime Smoothie!
