7 Frighteningly Healthy Halloween Recipes

Healthy-Halloween Halloween season seems to kick off the initial downward spiral of our best eating intentions in favor of orange marshmallow pumpkins and general holiday gluttony. It’s hard not to give in to your sweet tooth when every end cap starts stocking Halloween candy come October 1, just begging us to impulse buy a modest two dozen Kit Kat bars when picking up the morning paper or buying toothpaste at the pharmacy.

Sure, I’d like the month of October not to devolve into one big hyperactive eating spree. But it’s no fun to sit on the sidelines while everyone else mainlines chocolate. So I put together some of my favorite signature Feed Me Phoebe dishes that can grace your harrowing Halloween table, without causing you to look frightful in your skin tight slutty angel costume.

A few bites of Zombie Scab Dip may just be what you need to step away from the plastic jack-o-lantern and put down the 5 mini candy bars.

Happy Halloween!


Recipes Creamy Vegan Cauliflower Soup with Red Curry -- Spicy and Healthy 1. Wickedly Creamy Cauliflower Soup

If you’re dressing as a Celtics player, as I did in 2006, this themed dish will take on a whole new meaning. Otherwise, just consider it a delicious (vegan!) way to line your stomach before all the cauldron-colored jello shots.

Roasted Pumpkin and Arugula Salad 2. Chopped Up Jack-o-Lantern Chopped Salad

Pumpkin massacres can be gruesome, but also delicious. Skip the fake blood (or ketchup) and enjoy this hacked up healthy delight instead.

Grilled Marinated Lamb Kebabs with Zucchini and Lebonese Fresh Tomato Salsa | Easy Healthy Recipe 3. Fresh Cannibal Kabobs

Luckily these lamb leg kabobs are a lot more tender than the human meat I’ve sampled in my day. The bloody Lebanese tomato salsa dripping from every chunk doesn’t disappoint either.

A bleeding heart never tastes more delicious than when it’s skewered and thrown over an open fire. This fruity, pink cocktail will cause your insides to blush.

Mushy Pea Toasts with Mint 5. Toe Jam on Toast

This dish (along with the scab dip) was one of my mother’s inventions as part of our on-going “disgusting restaurant” menu, which we began collectively brainstorming for in 1989. This particular slimy concoction (brightened up with a little mint) is a great party appetizer to get you ready for far more disgusting gore.

Gluten-Free Dijon Baked Chicken Fingers 6. Fried Fingers with Bloody BBQ Sauce

Nothing makes for a more elegant Halloween tablescape than severed limbs. And these particular appendages happen to be gluten-free! They’re coated in ground up corn flakes and baked in the oven. Don’t forget to dip them in some bloody BBQ sauce.

Easy Hot Crab Dip Recipe with Jalapenos and Scallions | Gluten-Free Warm Dip 7. Zombie Scab Dip

It’s amazing how delicious a few scabs can be when topped with tortilla crumbs and baked until hot and creamy. This delicious finger food is kicked up with a little jalapeno and scallions.
