13 Black Food Recipes for Halloween

I have black quinoa, black rice and black garlic in my kitchen to experiment with over the weekend, but with Halloween fast becoming UKs most commercialised event after Christmas , I thought I would shamelessly  jump on the bandwagon and share some vegetarian and vegan black coloured food recipes you could easily make at home for the Halloween party (or maybe not).
This is Sweet Black Butter (vegan) made with black sesame seeds.
Halloween Fruit Leather Bats (vegan)
Black Olive Spider Gratin (vegan) Halloween



Black Rice Risotto (vegetarian) here it is topped with feta cheese, but you could easily make it suitable for vegans by substituting it with smoked tofu - cut into the shapes of ghosts - Boo!
Halloween Black Olive Tapenade (vegan)something different to spread onto those  crackers or pumpkin shaped bread rolls. 
Not technically Halloween food, but this Malaysian Black Pepper Tofu (vegan) certainly black with all that black pepper 
Why not cook up a cauldron of Smoky Black Bean Chili (vegan)
Halloween Black Pepper and Chocolate Muffin (vegetarian) turn them into spiders by inserting some licorice laces into them and giving them eyes
I also had to share my blogger friends black recipes, here are some Halloween Black Tahini Chocolate Biscuits by Green Gourmet Giraffe
And also some Halloween Chocolate Tahini Bliss 'Eye' Balls
Halloween Black Rice and butternut Squash Fritters - very very frightening.
Halloween Black Kale and Chickpea Pot Pies (vegan).  Your puff pastry can be made into a pumpkin shape or if your feeling adventurous - perhaps Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
And finally, I could not resist these Bats on Toast also by Green Gourmet Giraffe

Do you have any other vegetarian or vegan black coloured food recipes to share?!

Enjoy your Halloween Weekend!

  2. Wow! That is a great post with more black food than I could imagine. I am in US and just eat candy...lol. Great post. I do like black beans. I have a recipe for black bean brownies on my blog.

  3. Love your black food ideas - I bought some black tahini a while back and forgotten about it - and now that I have some halloween shaped cookie cutters the idea of tofu ghosts in the stew appeals - or even to cut out tofu bacon to have on toast. I really must try your spider gratin - would love to try the black rice risotto if I ever buy some black rice too.

    1. Thank you Johanna. Do share your tofu ghosts if you get round to making them for stew. Blakc rice is more available these days than it was a few years ago, so must be growing in popularity

  6. So many beautiful black recipes there - though the spider gratin is spooking me out just a bit too much! You've just reminded me how much I love tapenade, and bats! The leather bats are particularly cool.

    1. Thank Joey, the fruit leather bats is something I was quite proud of at the time, and I do love black olive tapenade.

  7. All looks very frightening! I like black food occasionally and these are all great ideas. Now that I have so many squashes, squash and black rice fritters would be very nice.

  8. This is a fun round up. I still find Halloween fever odd because in my mind it is an American holiday, but clearly it has been embraced here by most!

  9. A great post, the black rice and squash fritters look amazing as does the smoky chili. Now I need to buy some black rice, cookie cutters and see if I can find any black sesame seeds! Thanks for the recent link, very timely!

    1. Thank you Belinda. I will be making some more black food recipes this year, but probably not as creative for Halloween
