Autumn is here I am also sharing a recipe suitable for the month of October and Halloween!

Roasted Cauliflower Brain With Green Slime Hummus And Dead Man’s Finger Sandwiches

Scary, eh!?

Roasted Cauliflower Brain with Green Slime Hummus and Dead Man’s Finger Sandwiches:

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 1.5 hours

Ingredients:

1 whole cauliflower

2 tbsp olive oil

150ml white wine

Salt and pepper

3 tbsp tomato ketchup

For The Green Slime:

50g watercress, roughly chopped

2 tins chickpeas in water

2 cloves garlic

1 tbsp tahini

Juice of one lemon

1 tsp ground coriander

6 tbsp olive oil

Salt

For The Dead Man’s Fingers:

1/2 a loaf of thin-sliced white bread, crusts removed

Soft butter or margarine

150g cream cheese

50g whole almonds

Roasted Cauliflower Brain With Green Slime Hummus And Dead Man’s Finger Sandwiches Method:

1. Firstly, pre-heat oven to 150°C. Trim the leaves from the cauliflower and cut its base flat so that it sits upright. Rub all over with olive oil. Place the cauliflower into an ovenproof casserole dish and pour over the white wine. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 1.5 hours.

Check after 1 hour and brush on more oil if cauliflower seems dry. After the time is up, remove from the oven and insert a long knife into the centre of the cauliflower, ensuring that it is cooked all the way through. Leave to cool.

2. While the cauliflower is in the oven, make the hummus. Drain and rinse the chickpeas and place into a blender with the watercress, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, ground coriander and a

pinch of salt. Blend until smooth, gradually adding olive oil. Taste and adjust seasoning and lemon juice if necessary.

To Make Finger Sandwiches:

3. To make the finger sandwiches, gently flatten the slices of bread with a rolling pin to make them more pliable. Spread each slice with a little butter or margarine and some cream cheese.

Roll up the sandwiches, then use a blunt knife to make indentations to form the knuckles. Trim one end of each roll into a V shape and use a little cream cheese to stick on an almond fingernail.

4. Once the cauliflower has cooled, use a sharp knife to carefully cut a hollow, creating a bowl in the top. Fill this with the green hummus, then mix the ketchup with a little warm water and drizzles over the sides of the cauliflower to look like blood.

5. Serve the cauliflower brain with the dead man’s fingers on the side for dipping.

    After you have mixed the colors into the slime if you discover that you want a deeper color merely add another 3 or 4 drops of the food coloring and mix it once again.

    I am really looking forward to Halloween this year Claire because I know I’ll have to be creative since most events are cancelled. I have preordered some Halloween decor and I am now looking into easy recipes to make for my family. We are big fan of hummus and this sounds pretty easy to make. I can’t wait to try it with my son and see how far we get!

    Not sure I’m up for that. Bobbing for apples was more my style. – Margy

    My daughter hosts an annual pumpkin carving party and I like to bring something creepy to compliment the rest of her menu (dirt cake with gummy worms, witches knuckles (pretzel nuggets with almond slices for fingernails, kitty litter cake have been hits other years). This would be great! Thank you!
