Halloween Holidays

Grossy Puking Pumpkin- Happy Halloween!

Well, are you ready for the spookiest day of the year? Right, Halloween is knocking at our door and we must prepare a warm welcome. Now is the time that we show our pumpkin cutting skills. Those pumpkins are just waiting for us.

Prep time: 40 min; Servings: 4


  • 1 avocado (ripe)
  • 1 cup tomato, chopped
  • 1 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 green hot pepper, chopped
  • 1/3 cup parsley
  • Juice of one lemon
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of black pepper

Method of preparation:

  1. First, we carve the pumpkin. Mark the place you want to carve and then cut using a large knife or a pumpkin carving kit.
  2. Remove the pumpkin lid. Then, remove the seeds and insides of the pumpkin.
  3. Cut out the marked areas carefully with straight cuts.
  4. Your pumpkin is ready.
  5. Next, mash the avocado in a bowl and add tomato, onion, hot green pepper, parsley and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Place the pumpkin in the plate. Put a small candle in the pumpkin and carefully light.
  7. Arrange the “puke” along the plate, starting from the pumpkin`s mouth.

It`s a fun for the kids, but I must admit I enjoy these playful decorations as well. This spicy pumpkin puke has that delightful mix of flavors that really makes the perfect appetizer for any meal. As I have mentioned in my previous posts, I`m a huge fan of salads and everything veggie. A lunch or dinner without a salad is totally unimaginable to me. So, apart from a unique and festive recipe, this “spookamole” is an excellent and healthy side for your Halloween party or get-together.
