Halloween brings out witches, ghosts and goblins and lots of creativity. As with any holiday, there are always plenty of vegetarian and vegan dishes we can make. With a quick internet search, I found several great recipes that will satisfy the even most ghoulish of our carnivore friends.

  • Faux Stuffed Intestines – This dish isn’t for the faint of heart (especially one of a vegetarian). But, if you’re looking for a high gross out factor, these “stuffed intestines” fit the bill. Before you get too grossed out, relax. These intestines are made with a flaky outer pastry crust stuffed with a vegetable filling of yams, corn and olives with “green guts” made of peas. Dig in!

  • Spider Web Pizza –  Hardcore Herbivore uses her artistic eye to create a cool spiderweb pizza that’s completely vegan.

  • Eyeball Caprese – Evil Mad Scientist brings us an idea to serve basil, tomatoes, mozzarella and olives in a creepy, yet stylish, way.eyeball-food

  • Eyeball Martini –  Continuing on with the eyeball theme, carved radishes in ice cubes bring a new twist on James Bond’s favorite drink.  (Or, for a non-alcoholic beverage, check out how to make bloodshot eyeballs in tomato juice.)

  • Cheese Pumpkins – Betty Crocker gets her Halloween on by suggesting we take some cold pack cheese, roll it into pumpkin shapes and garnish with pretzel sticks, peanuts and a little parsley leaf. Not a lot of cooking required but they do make cute little finger foods.
