Here at G’NOSH we feel Halloween has crept up on us quicker than it takes to say BOO. What we do love about this pagan celebration is the excuse to use all the beautiful squashes, pumpkins and gourds that are filling the farmers markets, and rustle up some delicious autumnal recipes. We also love a bit of fancy dress, but we’ll save those tips for another day.
One of our favourite ways to use these gorgeous gourds is to scoop out the middle and fill with G’NOSH. Buy a few and arrange with some carrot sticks and red peppers for suitably colourful and mega healthy party food. Sprinkle the dips with pomegranate seeds or black sesame; both of which will add some gothic charm.
We love a classic pumpkin or butternut soup too. This year, try making yours with coconut milk as well as some red chilli, lemongrass and fresh ginger. This will help fight the flu as well as being packed with good fats and vitamins from the squash. Don’t forget about the seeds either as they’re packed with Vitamin E and zinc, and make a delicious snack. Simply toss with cumin, chilli powder and a little sea salt and roast in a moderate oven for about 20 minutes. This is a great topper for salads, soups and of course, dips!
If trick or treating is on the agenda, why not have some hauntingly healthy sweets for the kids to munch on? Try dipping whole strawberries in white chocolate and decorating with black writing icing to make ghosts. Don’t forget the grown ups this year either; for a poison Dracula would be proud of, try mixing fresh blood orange juice with a splash of Solerno or orange liqueur of your choice. Garnish with liquorice strings for a devilishly delicious Halloween cocktail. Chin chin!
