I love Halloween, and I spend entirely too much time thinking about what I can add a spooky twist to. One night when I looked into my fridge and took inventory of my leftovers I was inspired to make Halloween themed spreads.
You may notice the red spread in the photos is not in this post. That recipe is in my in my ebook, The Ghoulish Gourmet.Get more Halloween recipes on the blog here, or in my ebook, The Ghoulish Gourmet, get the Kindle version at Amazon.
One can of white beans makes all three spreads. Each tastes completely different but are similar enough to make all three in minutes. The longest part was waiting for my little food processor to make each one smooth enough.
Boo-tiful Butternut Squash White Bean Spread
soy-free, gluten-free, oil-free option*
- 1/2 cup cooked butternut squash, or pumpkin - even carrots would work

- 1 tablespoon water
- pinch ground sage
- pinch ground rosemary
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Puree everything together in a food processor until smooth.

Oh, I love this! Halloween is usually so sugar-focused – it’s nice to have some healthier ways to be festive!
