Spooky Stuffed Peppers
Get creative and carve out some freaky faces into some healthy stuffed peppers. These are perfect for a family dinner ahead of trick-or-treating. The spooky designs will beguile the kids and appease their appetites. Grab a selection of colourful peppers, slice the tops off each one, remove the seeds and white flesh from inside and carve freaky faces into each one with our GrooveTech Paring Knife. Then you can stuff each pepper with an array of delicious ingredients of your choice. We suggest garlic, aubergine, onion, grains, basil, pine nuts, sundried tomato paste and a squirt of lemon juice. Roast the filled peppers for 45 minutes and serve up your spooky snacks.
Healthy Pumpkin Hummus
A savoury Halloween snack idea which involves no waste. Chop the top of a Pumpkin off with our GrooveTech Chef’s Knife and scoop out the innards. Season and roast the seedless flesh with garlic and oil for 45 minutes. Next, blend the ingredients and all their juices along with lemon juice, tahini paste and chickpeas. After scooping the hummus back into the pumpkin, serve the healthy Halloween snack with crudites such as cucumber, carrot and pepper.
Scary Sausage Roll Mummy Dippers
These Mummy Dippers are perfect savoury snacks for the little ones. Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas mark 6 whilst brushing the cocktail sausages with honey, ketchup and mustard. After wrapping the croissant strips around each chipolata and place in the oven for 20 mins. When the time is up, let the mummies cool down and finally dot each sausage with two mustard yellow eyes, peeping out from their pastry bandages.
