With Halloween just around the corner, I noticed that I haven’t given it the right amount of importance this year.
So. To honor this America’s and children’s favorite holiday, I decided to share the recipes I prepared last year… (and in a lack of ideas probably will repeat this year as well). The best thing about these is that you can turn almost every Halloween meal into a vegan one.
What can I do, I am a lazy person. But, don’t mistake laziness for creativity, I can brag with the trade of creativity and I guess it beats the fact that I am a bit of a couch potato.
Ok, this is a pretty big statement, but stick around and I promise you will love what I have in store for you.
Vegan Spooky Breakfast
For the ultimate spooky breakfast, I decided to go for the Vegan Cinnamon Roll Pancakes.
Mmm, there’s nothing spooky about cinnamon and pancakes, right?
Don’t worry, these are pretty good-for-you vegan pancakes, but with being Halloween and all, you can always decorate them and make them scary-looking.
For this purpose, I used some whipped cream (use coconut milk instead of regular one) to create little ghosts to put them on top of each stack. My nephews were blown away by these delicious, halloweeny pancakes.
How about a lunch meal that will take less than an hour to prepare and is flavor packed and delicious? The Five Ingredient Vegan Mexican Quinoa Stuffed Peppers are a great lunch idea.
Wondering how do they count as Halloween appropriate dish?
Well, if you haven’t noticed by the photo bellow, they make the CUTEST Jack-o-lanterns.
Ok, it might not be just me that find them a bit more “cute” than “scary”, but they really do look Halloween-like, and children will LOVE eating them.
If my nephews, who are not the pepper enthusiasts finished off their plates, then they really must be something.
Who Needs Dinner When There Are Vegan Halloween Snacks
Kids need some in between snacks to survive a long evening of treat or treating, and it should not be the regular Reese’s or Snickers candies. Instead, surprise them with an orange filled with fresh berries and oranges. Fresh snacks can’t get healthier, or spookier than this!
If you think your loved ones will enjoy a saltier snack rather than a fruity one, then don’t fret! See, last year I discovered these awesome purplish chips, that are actually blue corn chips, and decided to buy a pack or two, and ended up regretting not having bought more. I prepared the Vegan Spinach and Artichoke Dip and plated everything in the form of a witch. (no photos for this one, but trust me, the witch was probably the scariest of the lot).
I know I haven’t been such a Halloweeny person now that I moved out of my brother’s house and my nephews live quite far from me, but I still enjoy the holiday spirits and it was what actually prompted me to write this post. It might be a year late, but the recipes are timeless!
