Halloween Recipes: Do you want fiery pumpkin soup?

The fall season really begins with the first spoonful of pumpkin soup, and Halloween should not be missed either. After all, the juicy flesh of the Jack O’Lantern hole shouldn’t end up in the trash. For a delicious pumpkin soup, sauté a large onion and three garlic cloves in a little oil, chili flakes and ginger in a large saucepan. Then add the sliced ​​pumpkin meat and saute briefly. If you used a Hokkaido pumpkin and you didn’t disappoint, you can leave the skin on for a bright orange color.

Pour in half a liter of vegetable broth, bring to a boil and simmer for about 25 minutes. Next, beat about 200 milliliters of coconut milk, puree until creamy with a hand blender and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. In addition to the usual garnish of roasted pumpkin seeds and pumpkin seed oil, a few drops of chili sauce add the spooky factor.

And another idea: our Halloween pumpkin soup with blood orange and chili is also perfect for a special occasion. Just try it!

Scary peppers with stuffing

This pepper not only tastes great, but it also looks scary. Cook 150 grams of bulgur according to package directions. Meanwhile, peel and chop an onion and a clove of garlic. Wash and cut 200 grams of mushrooms. Fry 400 grams of minced meat in a pan with a little oil until crispy. Then remove and roast the mushrooms. When golden, add onion and garlic. At the end, minced meat and a spoonful of tomato paste are added.

Then add 150 milliliters of vegetable broth and a can of crushed tomatoes. Season with salt, pepper, oregano, basil and chili. Cook on low heat for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, wash four peppers and cut off the top. Cut scary faces into pods – there are no limits to your imagination. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and cook at 175 degrees for about 15 minutes. Put the lid on after about seven minutes. Finally, fill the peppers with the minced mushroom mixture and serve.

Prefer eggs instead of pepper? Also try these fancy Halloween stuffed eggs – perfect spooky bites!

Scary black spaghetti

Black spaghetti is a must for a pasta dish that couldn’t be more terrifying. They are sold in stores as a vegetable variant colored with sepia ink or made from black beans. Since both varieties have a very intense flavor, the sauce should be quite reduced. You’re on the safe side with the classic midnight oil Aglio e, which protects against vampires with olive oil, chilli, fresh parsley and a generous amount of garlic.

Pretty scary too: delicious scary fingers with almonds.

Creepy Rice Salad

This salad looks like a tangle of insects and is suitable as a side dish: cook 80 grams of wild rice, 100 grams of basmati rice and 50 grams of quinoa according to the instructions and leave to cool. Then roughly chop 30 grams of almonds and fry them in a pan with 30 grams of pine nuts. At the same time, cut an onion into thin strips, stew for five minutes in sunflower oil on high heat and add to the rice.

Cut 15 grams of parsley, 10 grams of basil and 5 grams of tarragon. Wash the rocket and add to the cooled rice along with the sour cherries and the rest of the herbs. Mix everything well and dress with olive oil and the juice and zest of one lemon.

Baked stuffed pumpkin

Sweet Japanese zucchini is the perfect size and, with its almost black skin, just the right look to create a dish that’s scary to look at, but harmless and tasty. To do this, cut small pumpkins crosswise to create a lid and a bowl. The pumpkin itself is not particularly productive, but great for filling. First wash the inside with pumpkin oil and put the lid in the oven for 25 minutes at 200 degrees.

For the filling, saute finely chopped onion and garlic in a little oil, add the previously cooked potato pieces, season with turmeric, cumin and chilli and saute. Then cut the dried tomatoes into small pieces, briefly fry the cashew nuts and feta cheese and add to the potatoes. Fill the pumpkin bowls, sprinkle with parmesan or any other cheese of your choice and cook in the oven for another 20 minutes. When eating, part of the pulp is released from the inner wall.

Bloody dessert

Good Halloween parties don’t miss a dessert. For blood cakes, halve a vanilla pod and scoop out the pulp. Then mix with 220 grams of flour, 50 grams of flakes and a packet of baking powder. Then add 70 grams of applesauce, 250 milliliters of milk and 80 grams of honey and mix well. Beat the whites of three eggs until stiff and beat with the egg.

Place the balls of dough (20 in total) on a tray lined with baking paper and put in the oven at 160 degrees. Take it out again after about 15 minutes and let it cool. Meanwhile, chop 150 grams of white chocolate and melt it in a water bath. When the cakes have cooled, turn them over and spread them with white chocolate. For a scary factor, mix 125 milliliters of cherry juice with a tablespoon of cornstarch and bring to a boil in a saucepan. When the mixture has cooled a little, put it on top of the cakes. Bloody dessert is ready.
