Gearing up for Halloween, we’re seeing everything orange, black, and green. Want to give your family a scare? Rachel Fink from Parenting Pod has the perfect recipe to share with you!
What screams Halloween better than pumpkins and edible Jack-o’-lanterns? The answer—as you can probably guess—is nothing.
Sure, Halloween is all about the costumes and the candy, but we don’t want to forget the important things about parenting—mainly, feeding our children nutritious and delicious food. We want to make sure their tummies are filled with good stuff—even on Halloween—before they break into their trick-or-treat stash. Since this recipe includes all fresh ingredients including plenty of nutritious veggies, you’ll feel great about feeding your family this fall.
Your kids will go crazy over these Pumpkin Shephard’s Pie Stuffed Peppers, made to look like mini Jack-o’-lanterns. If you lack the ingredients, or you aren’t a fan of shepherd’s pie, you can stuff these babies with other fresh ingredients or with just about any type of leftovers you may have. Other stuffing options include: beans/chicken/turkey with rice/quinoa; sautéed onions, mushrooms and spinach with cheese; mac n’ cheese; or chili.
This festive meal provides a twist on the ordinary casserole-dish that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. And if you don’t have the patience to carve out creepy faces, skip it—by all means! The meal will still exude fall spirit, because—well—they look like mini pumpkins!
