Ghoulishly Good Halloween Recipes

By October 14, 2022October 21st, 2022No Comments

Lean, green and ghoulishly gratifying, these three recipes are a healthy-twist on creative Halloween appetizers to make in time for your gathering on the spookiest night of the year.


Ghoulish Guac

Serves 4


  • 1 bag of black tortilla chips
  • 4 avocados, peeled, seeded
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small tomato, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 pitted black olives



  1. Place the avocado flesh into a bowl and mash it with a fork.
  2. Add garlic and lime juice and mix.
  3. Mix in onion and tomato.
  4. Spoon the mixture into a low bowl, smoothing the surface as much as possible.
  5. Add the sour cream or yogurt to a cake piping bag, or a small baggie. Cut a small hole in the corner of the baggie, then carefully squeeze out a web pattern on the guacamole surface.
  6. Place the spider in the web: use one whole olive for the spider body, and one cut into strips for the legs. 
  7. Serve immediately.


Deviled Avo Eyeballs

Serves 6


  • 6 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 avocado, peeled, seeded
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1-2 Tbsp. mayonnaise or plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. white vinegar
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • sriracha aioli (in a squeeze bottle)
  • olive slices
  • 12 pimentos, pomegranate seeds, or tiny tomato chunks


  1. Peel the eggs, cut them in half length-wise, and remove the yolks.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the avocado flesh, egg yolks, mustard, mayonnaise or plain Greek yogurt, and vinegar and mix until you reach the desired consistency—salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Spoon the avocado mixture into the pit of the egg halves.
  4. Use sriracha aioli to create veins in the eyes.
  5. Top each half with an olive slice and a pimento, pomegranate seed, or tiny tomato chunk.
  6. Refrigerate for up to 6 hours until ready to serve. 


Avo Toast Ghosts

Serves 3


  • 3 slices of toast
  • 1 jumbo avocado, peeled
  • 3 olive slices
  • 6 pimento, pomegranate seeds, or tiny tomato chunks 


  1. Place the avocado flesh into a small bowl and mash it with a fork.
  2. Either use a cookie cutter or create a simple ghost template and cut shapes out of the toast slices.
  3. Spread the avocado mash onto the toast.
  4. Add an olive slice for the mouth and two pimento, pomegranate seeds, or tiny tomato chunks for the eyes.
  5. Let your little monsters devour immediately.
