Skull & Crossbones
OK so it’s October so time to pull a few seasonal dishes out of the bag!!
This is a simple, fun skull and crossbones – probably suitable for older kids as it’s a little on the “real” side.
– White bean puree (potato, parsnip, celeriac, cauliflower mash/puree would all work well) for the skull.
– Steamed potatoes – for the ends of the bones
– Cauliflower – for the bones
– Pumpkin – for the eye socket (optional)
Any white veggies that you have on hand will work. Most can be steamed or roasted and then put in the blender with a little milk (and flavourings like garlic should you wish) to make a puree.
1. Form a skull shape from the puree.
2. Then dig out some eye sockets with a knife.
3. And then some nostrils.
4. Then make a mouth with teeth outlines.
5. I cut steamed potatoes to make the ends of the bones.
6. Then added some lightly roasted cauliflower as the bones themselves.
7. Or you can give the eyes the scary look with a contrasting veg (I used roasted pumpkin).
