Healthy Halloween Recipe: Roasted Potato “Ghosts”
This healthy (and gluten free!) Halloween idea couldn’t be easier. Or cuter. Or yummier.
Roast the “ghosts” then let kids “decorate” them with organic sour cream (or cream cheese) and sliced olives (or even colorful bits of veggies if your ghosts are willing to wear more than white).
What you’ll need (use organic ingredients whenever possible):
- Olive oil or butter
- Sea salt
- Sour cream or cream cheese
- Black olives, sliced
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Slice potatoes length-wise, about 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick. Trim bottoms flat (don’t toss what you cut off, bake and eat too!). Lay on pan, single layer and brush with butter or olive oil on both sides. Sprinkle with salt. Roast for 30-40 minutes. Cool. Spread on sour cream or cream cheese. Add olive eyes.
… and presto! Boo-tiful “edible decor” for your Halloween bash!
