A Five-Course Halloween Meal Plan
Starter — Franken-Kiwi
These silly & spooky snacks were first conceived by Shelley from Two Healthy Kitchens when her kid’s sudden decision to “make spooky snacks” had her scouring her kitchen for resources. Peel the kiwis halfway (to leave “hair”), then add dried blueberries or mini chocolate chips for eyes. Add pretzel sticks in each side and voila! A little monster to feed your little monster.
Appetizer — Veggie Skeleton
Laura from Feeding Frenzy found that her kids got a such a kick out of eating “bones” (ew?), they ate more veggies than they realized! Bonus points: take some veggie dip and make it red by mixing in tomato paste or food colouring for blood.
Main course — Jack-o-lantern Stuffed Peppers
Who doesn’t love shepherd’s pie? In this creative twist, Brianne from Cupcakes and Kale Chips has stuffed shepherd’s pie into peppers carved as jack-o-lanterns. Another creative way to encourage kids to eat their vegetables!
Cheese — Pumpkin Cheese Ball
Because no fancy five course meal is complete without a cheese course,, consider whipping up a pumpkin shaped cheese ball! Prepare the cheese ball as per the recipe from Cabot Cheese, then add the stem of a pumpkin or a bunch of cilantro. Add crackers to make the “field” where the pumpkin is waiting to be picked.
Dessert — Leggy Whoopie Spiders
This is a recipe that’s a bit more of a time commitment, so no one will blame you if your “desert” is the halloween candy laying around your house! If you like a challenge, River from Wing It Vegan created a scrumptious spider treat to please kids and grownups alike.
