Only 4 more nights until Halloween! I’m not a huge fan of this celebration myself, but I do like to create recipes for it, haha! And I’m sure if you’re really into it, you want to eat something that adds to the theme. Especially with children it’s a nice thing to do. This recipe is not only fun to make and to look at, but I tested it on children and they love it. If your children are a little bit older, then they will be happy to help you too. The process is rather fun, especially wrapping it up in the end. You can serve this with several veggies or a salad. For some more Halloween recipe inspiration, go check out last years recipe: Creepy Tasty. Have fun!
-1 cup veggie mince (I used Fry’s)
-1 cup chickpeas (from can)
-1 carrot (chopped)
-1 cup bread crumbs
-1/2 cup soy milk (unsweetened)
-1/2 onion (finely chopped)
-2 cloves of garlic (minced)
-2 tbs nutritional yeast
-1 tsp oregano
-1 tsp parsley
-salt/pepper (to taste)
-50 gr cheese (grated) (I used the VioLife original)
-1 pastry sheet (I used Jus Roll)
-Preheat the oven at 200C + grease the inside of a cake tin.
-Put the veggie mince, the chickpeas, the carrot, the bread crumbs, the soy milk, the nutritional yeast, the oregano, the parsley and a bit of salt/pepper in the food processor and pulse until it’s a little sticky and mixed. Don’t make it too smooth.
-Fry the onions and the garlic for 2-3 minutes and then add everything from the food processor. Fry this all together for about 5 minutes. Let it cool down.
-In the meantime cut the pastry sheet: Cut off 10 cm of the pastry sheet for the base. Then cut the rest in strokes of 1 cm.
-Knead the filling into the shape of the base and start wrapping the little strokes around it. If you stretch the strokes a little bit, you will be able to use 1 stroke, 2 times.
-Put it in the oven for about 35-40 minutes (until golden brown).
-For the eyes I used a little piece of a nori sheet and extra cheese. Cut out 2 little circles of the nori sheet, stick it on a piece of cheese and cut out the cheese. It’s better to add the eyes when it’s finished, rather than putting them in the oven too.
Are you going to make this recipe for next Tuesday or maybe the Creepy Tasty instead? Please show me all your lovely creations, I really love seeing those! Send me a picture, tag me or use #PlanetManel on Instagram. Thank you! X
