What’s your Halloween ritual? Do you take your kids out trick-or-treating? Or do you dress up and have everyone over for a costume party?
Whichever way you decide to spend your Halloween night, there’s sure to be good food around! Here are a few easy ways to add some ‘chills’ to your Halloween spread:
- Look around your kitchen for black pots, plates, trays, cups and more. These dark dishes will be perfect to display various foods and candy (like our shrimp tray above)
- Use ‘scary’ fruits like peeled grapes, prickly pears, or these finger limes (seen at left). I always like to find unusual fruits, usually seen in this section.
- Make classic desserts with a twist like this Beet Pie made with these beets (instead of Pumpkin Pie; recipe here).
- Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 10 minsIngredients:
• 8.8 oz vacuum packed beets
• 1- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
• 1 small bunch each of cilantro & parsley
• 2 oz shelled walnuts
• 3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
• 2 tsp red wine vinegar
• Salt & freshly ground black pepper
Lastly, our friends over at Love Beets sent us this recipe to share with you to serve at your Halloween party:
Beet, Walnut & Herb dip
- Roughly chop the beets and herbs and put in a food processor with the walnuts and garlic and process until you have a course paste.
- Add the oil and vinegar and season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Taste to check the seasoning – you may need to add a little more vinegar if the beets are particularly sweet.
- Serve with pita chips, crackers, etc.
