Alex and Ian. But this year Sylvia and I have had fun making a few simple Halloween-themed snacks. Perhaps she is old enough now, or I spend too much time on Pinterest, or I have the energy for it right now. So I will share a few posts over the next day with Halloween treats. Starting with bat toasts.
healthy bats made out of grape bodies and corn chip wings.
I thought I would do black olive bodies and then hit upon a brilliant idea to carve them out of tofu bacon and fry til dark and crispy. Not as easy as I expected but it looked great. And Sylvia was happy to have some tofu bacon for tea. I placed the bats on sourdough bread spread with hummus. Then I had the not-so-brilliant idea of the bats flying over purple cauliflower trees. It looked silly.
tricken soup (with noodles not rice). Later I thought that you could do away with the corn chips (though they are easy) and carve wings out of tofu. If you wanted to make this meal gluten free as well as vegan, you could use rice cakes instead of bread. Maybe even some ghoulish red eyes could be made with tomato sauce in a squeezy bottle. So many spooky possibilities!
No recipe but for those who want a summary of how to make bat toast: spread a slice of bread or toast with hummus, place fried bat body shape of tofu bacon in middle (or black olive) and place blue corn chip wings either side.
The bat toasts were great fun and so I am sharing them at Wellness Weekends with Ricki Heller who enjoys some healthy fun.
