Fun Carrot Fingers – Halloween

Carrot Fingers

I wanted to create a party piece for Halloween and some crudites and dip are a perfect starter. I have used a home-made beetroot dip so I can make sure it’s healthy!

This is a fun plate that would be great at any time of the year ….. and then the gross addition (subtraction!!) of half a finger fits right into Halloween.

Recipe

– 5 small carrots

– I used yellow capsicum (bell pepper) for the fingernails – you could substitute with sliced cucumber/celery/daikon/radish

– Dip – I used beetroot for the “blood” effect

Method

1. Peel and slice the carrot in half and then cut into a “finger” shape.

Carrot Fingers - 1 carrot (1 of 1)

 

2. Then cut an indent at the end for the fingernail to sit in.

3. And make enough for a handful! I used a smaller carrot for the little finger.

Carrot Fingers - 3 four fingers (1 of 1)

 

4. Then for the thumb slice the fingernail indent to the side and trim down so it’s a little shorter too.

5. I cut pieces of a yellow capsicum/bell pepper to make the nails.

Carrot Fingers - 5 fingernails (1 of 1)

 

6. And then used the left over pieces to make knuckles.

Carrot Fingers - 6 knuckles (1 of 1)

 

7. I made a dip.

Then cut off the tip of one of the fingers and dunk in the dip. I also added some beetroot juice to the end of the severed finger….
