The puking pumpkin

    30 min

    So simple and super effective, the puking pumpkin is the only thing you'll need to serve this Halloween. So grab some chips, a pumpkin and the kids (order negotiable) and let's get in to it.

    Makes: 1 puking pumpkin

    • 1 pumpkin (size to preference)
    • 2 ripe avocados
    • 1/2 large red onion, finely diced
    • 8 to 10 cherry tomatoes, finely diced
    • 1 big handful fresh coriander, finely chopped
    • juice of 1 lime
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1 fresh red chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
    • splash of extra virgin olive oil
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • tortilla chips to serve

    1. Cut out a small circle at the top of the pumpkin, big enough to comfortably fit your hand in. Using a spoon, scoop out all the centre of the pumpkin. Cut out eyes and a mouth in any style you fancy, preferably resulting in the pumpkin looking unwell!
    2. De-stone the avocados and scoop out the flesh into a bowl. Mash slightly with a fork, ensuring a smooth but still chunky texture. Add the onion, tomatoes, coriander, lime juice, garlic, chilli, olive oil and seasoning. Mix further until desired texture. Taste for further seasoning.
    3. Place the pumpkin with the mouth facing the plate and scoop the avocado mixture coming out of it, vomit style. Add chips and tuck in!


    For a creamier guac, add a dollop of soured cream.
