We’re celebrating Halloween at Monterey Mushrooms in style, with some creative ideas from other food bloggers.

2. Stuffed Mushroom “Eyeballs”

Instead of cream cheese, these stuffed mushrooms are filled with seasoned tempeh— made from fermented soybeans. Thinly sliced sundried tomatoes give them that “bloodshot” look, and of course, black olives represent the scary pupils. Thanks to DHerbs for the creative mushroom recipe.
