Green Goblins and the Spookamole Spectacular
Q: What do you get when you cross one of my favorite times of year with one of my favorite foods to eat?
A: An aaaaa-vo-caaaaaaa-doooooooh Halloween treat, oooooh! (I hope you read that with your ghostliest voice)
The Green Goblins are a quick n’ easy recipe with Mexican avocados (AKA the Hass variety) that you can serve at all your Fall Festival-slash-Harvest -slash-Halloween-slash-whatever other politically correctly name exists-parties. Of course, when it comes to avocados, you’re probably thinking April through June, cool dip for a hot day, but hey, guess what — you can get avocados all year long, and when you have a food that is naturally green and gooey, how could you possibly pass up using it in a Halloween dish?
4 Hass avocados
Juice from 1 lemon
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons finely chopped green onion
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 turns on a black pepper mill
Box of Sesame crackers or Triscuits (Triscuits are in the picture because, ahem, I got carried away taste testing the sesame crackers)
1 can of sliced black olives
1 bag of julienne carrot strips
1 bag of shredded red cabbage
1/2 cup ground pumpkin seed (optional)
How to Make:
Mix the avocados, lemon juice, cilantro, green onion, salt, nutmeg, and black pepper all together. You can put it in a food processor or mash it with good old fashioned elbow grease. If you’re cooking with children, you can put all the ingredients in a Ziploc bag and let them mash it up.
Lay out the crackers and snip the end off the Ziploc to pipe out the mashed avocado, or use a watermelon baller to scoop it onto the crackers.
Place two olive slices for eyes, and then poke the carrot strips into the middle. Use a piece of shredded cabbage for the mouth.
Once you have a full platter, sprinkle with ground pumpkin seed (I made mine by popping a handful of roasted seeds in my Magic Bullet for 10 seconds).
You’re done! Eat!
I wrote this review while participating in a Spookamole blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Avocados from Mexico and received avocado items to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
