After hours trawling Google looking for some interesting things to cook for hallowe'en I thought maybe some of you guys have some tried and tested recipes you'd like to share?

I attempted a pumpkin soup last year but it wasn't the best.

I am at a loss this year can anyone help? :o

Hello Daffodil!

I've been on the same topic for over a week. My partner is vegetarian with allergies to milk & eggs and asked me to bake a few dozen cupcakes, cookies & a pumpkin pie for a luncheon/potluck he is having at work. I am the president of the honor society in my graduate program and I, too, have to bake something for my Halloween potluck. I am vegan so I am definitely going to be baking Vegan treats.

My favorite recipe of all time is my pumpkin pie recipe (so low in calories, fat and carbs)!
Ingredients:
1 pack of firm silken tofu
1 can of organic pumpkin puree
1/4 cup stevia in the raw (you can use real rugar or brown sugar)
2-3 tsp vanilla extract
dash of nutmeg
cinnamon (to taste)
3 tsp ground flaxseed
Vegan pie crust (optional...I avoid crusts and flour so I never use a crust)
Directions:
Blend all the ingredients in the blender or food processor. You may add a little water or soymilk to help blend the ingredients.
The drier the mixture, the easier it is to bake.

Pour onto baking dish sprayed with canola oil non-fat spray and bake at 450 for 15 minutes. Then lower the temp to 350 and bake for an hour. Let cool and garnish as you wish. Makes 8 slices at about 35 calories each. I'll be baking some later today so I can post pictures of my treats with recipes of what I came up with!
