Colorful Pumpkin Curry
D.Schmidt
This vegetarian curry offers the bright colours of fall - orange, yellow, and red - together in a curry infused with citrus accents. You'll love the unique taste of this curry, as well as its healthy combination of vegetables, including pumpkin or squash, yam/sweet potato, carrots, yellow bell pepper, and cherry tomatoes. Add chick peas as a protein source, then finish the dish with a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds and nasturium flowers for a gourmet curry recipe that's as beautiful as it is delicious. Makes a nice main course dish for a Halloween or fall dinner party.

5. Dessert: Black Pudding (Vegan/Gluten-free)

Black Sesame Dessert
D.Schmidt
This scrumptious Asian dessert is low-fat, low-carb., and low-sodium. What makes this pudding black are black sesame seeds, which are naturally sweet and have a deliciously unique flavor. They are also very healthy, being an excellent source of calcium, iron, magnesium, protein, and essential fatty acids (EFA). Thai influence on this traditional Chinese dessert can be found in the addition of coconut milk and peanuts. Makes a scary-delicious Halloween dessert!

6. Dessert: Pumpkin Custard (Gluten-free)

Thai Pumpkin Custard
D.Schmidt
This custard is spectacular to look at, and wonderful to eat. Makes a great Halloween dessert recipe, and a nice alternative to pumpkin pie. Don't be put off by the long baking time - it's actually a really easy recipe to make. A small pumpkin (or pumpkin-like squash) is filled with an easy Thai custard (a healthier and lower calorie version than traditional custard). Serve warm with a splash of maple syrup and/or brandy and ENJOY!

7. Halloween Treat: Scary Eyeballs! (Vegan/Gluten-free)

Scary Eyeballs Halloween Treat
D.Schmidt
This Halloween recipe for "Scary Eyeballs" is fun to make and delicious to eat. And unlike most treats, this Halloween recipe is also exceptionally healthy (they're even gluten-free)! Black sesame seed is the key ingredient, which is valued for its vitamins and minerals. You can either buy the black sesame seed or purchase some black sesame paste ready-made (both are available at Asian/Chinese food stores). Your kids will love the sensation of holding these eyeballs, which feel terrifyingly realistic. ENJOY!
