If you’re looking to set a spooky table, try this avocado recipe that resembles braaaaaains!

Halloween Avocado Brain Dip

What You Need:

2 avocados

1 large head of cauliflower

6 thin slices of red fruit roll-up

½ cup salsa

  • Cut the avocados in half, remove the seeds, and scoop the inside of the fruit into a bowl. Stir in the salsa and set it aside.
  • Remove the stem and leaves from the cauliflower, leaving a hollow center when the cauliflower head is placed upside down. This cauliflower forms the bowl for the avocado dip and looks like the “brains.”

Tip: if your cauliflower needs some extra support, use toothpicks to hold it together.

  • Place the cauliflower in a small bowl, facing the hollow upwards. Most of the cauliflower should be above the bowl.
  • Fill the cauliflower with avocado dip. Decorate the brain with rolls of red fruit roll-up, weaving them in between the florets to resemble veins and arteries.
