The inspiration for this platter came from a post I saw on Pinterest while browsing through Halloween themed food.
The original post was made on a blog by Kristi who is a vegan mom. Her websites are https://www.therightonmom.com/ and mommyonthemoney.com.
I have to say that I am not a vegan and don’t intend to become one in the future. But I like to view vegan and vegetarian content for inspiration to keep vegetables exciting. I recently wrote a post about why I try to eat more vegetables. You can read it here: Inspiration
I went to the grocery store to purchase a variety of vegetables for my platter. The most important thing was the cauliflower, which is the star of the platter. I got a head of cauliflower, baby carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, and peppers.
I rinsed all the vegetables and got them ready to assemble. I needed to see the picture again and did an internet search for "skull vegetable platter". I found out that Kristi actually had step-by-step instructions on how to put the cauliflower skull together. Wonderful! But she used two heads of cauliflower and I only bought one. So I winged it!
Here is the link to Kristi's page for the Halloween Veggie Platter - Cauliflower Skull tutorial with step-by-step pictures and instructions: https://www.therightonmom.com/2013/10/halloween-veggie-platter-cauliflower.html
Kristi's original looks amazing! My version doesn't compare. Thank you for the great idea!
