Picture of Baked Devil's Brain in Blood Sauce
It's Halloween...and the perfect time for a Parallel World Cooking Adventure!

This is a lovely Baked Devil's Brain in Blood Sauce...vegetarian style, of course!
(Sorry, Vampires, you'll have to pass on this one.)

There are amazing physical similarities between a common cauliflower and the human brain...
(See data at "PLEASE PASS THE CAULIFLOWER - A RECIPE FOR INTRODUCING UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS TO BRAIN STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION" at http://advan.physiology.org/content/24/1/22.full.pdf )

Besides, the cauliflower is known to be great food for the brain, and have other health benefits, in spite of it's "cauliflower brain" bad rep!

It follows that the cauliflower is an essential part of a truly "gruesome" Halloween meal ;)
So follow me as I enter a Parallel World where "Brain Food" has a whole new meaning...

We will be under the psychic protection of a powerful Brane-Power Double Black Diode amulet as we cross over into Other-World Cooking, so as not to offend the Devil there whose brain we borrowed...

Prepare the vegetarian Blood Sauce:

Quarter two peeled beets, add to a quart of water and bring to a boil. Add spices to taste, such as veg salt, basil, oregano, paprika, ceyanne, hot sauce, red peppers...anything red and hot is fair game!

An onion and garlic for flavour is recommended. Simmer the beet mixture for about an hour, then shut off heat and allow to cool. Coconut oil can be added when the beets are warm as a thickening agent.


Blend the Blood:

Put the cooled beet mixture in a blender and blend at high speed until totally smooth and creamy. Pour this blood-like mixture into the baking pan.

Ok, so how is it we can hate and love something at the same time??
There's a bigger question there somewhere. ;)
That is a crazy, disgusting looking brain! Great Halloween meal! Even better that it's healthy!

It's interesting that something we consider disgusting can be so much fun and even edible!
I agree!
