Who says Halloween is only for children? Not us! Why not get creative in the kitchen with some of our Halloween inspired dishes. There is nothing quite like a deliciously hearty meal and some tasty snacks to enjoy on the spookiest night of the year, and so we asked our Kurami nutritionist to put together some recipes for the whole family to enjoy.
Halloween follows the Harvest festival so it is a time to celebrate harvest and the bounty of nature. Here are some recipe ideas, but feel free to add some of the seasonal produce that you can find at your doorstep!
1 tbsp vegetable oil
½ onion, diced
300g beef mince
1 can kidney or mixed beans, drained
1 can tomatoes
½ beef or vegetable stock cube
400ml hot water
½ bunch of coriander, chopped
- Heat oil in medium-sized pan. Brown the onion, then add the beef mince, slowly breaking the mince.
- Add the drained beans, then the canned tomatoes, then stir for about 3-4 minutes.
- Add the sweetcorn and tip the spinach into the pan.
- Dissolve the stockcube in the water, then add the stock into the pan, cook over low heat for around 10 to 15 minutes.
- Sprinkle the chopped coriander before serving.
- Serve with your favourite flatbread, or a side of rice.
If you fancy a thicker texture, why not trying adding creme fraiche?
