Add some pizazz to any pasta dish: use tofu and spaghetti to make this (vegetarian*) spaghetti yeti!


Suitable occasions for making it:
  • Halloween
  • Pastafarian Holiday (a.k.a. Pastover or Ramendan)
  • Any meal for fussy kids who wouldn't normally eat pasta
  • An extremely formal dinner party full of guests who take themselves too seriously
*Also vegan, if you use egg-free pasta.

Step 1: Ingredients

To make the spaghetti yeti, the only ingredients you'll need are:
  • A brick of super firm tofu
  • Spaghetti
  • Water
You'll probably also want to serve it with some sort of sauce, but I'll leave that up to you. The spaghetti yeti is abominably bland, so goes well in any pasta dish,
Freakin' brilliant!<br><br>Seems awfully fragile, though. Is it difficult getting the yeti into and out of the pot in one piece?<br>
HAHAHH! I want to do a bunch of these for my next dinner with guests. How fun!
Excellent! The more formal the occasion, the better :-)
Would Bleu Cheese be a good sub for tofu?
While infinitely tastier than tofu, it would probably melt during the boiling stage, and endanger the structural integrity of the yeti.
I'd have to agree with TB here. You'd need to use something that would stay firm even while the spaghetti went soft. I suppose you could use meat as a tofu substitute, though...
I'd love to see a stop motion of the SpagYeti rampaging across the kitchen...<br> <br> <div class="media_embed"> <object height="315" width="560"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/-eMFoP1lU8o?version=3&amp;hl=en_GB"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"><embed allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/-eMFoP1lU8o?version=3&hl=en_GB" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560"></embed></object></div>
Sadly, the spaghetti yeti keeled over onto a dirty floor while I took a break to eat some of its non-yetified spaghetti kin. Perhaps next time I cook, I'll try to animate my foodstuffs.
What happened to the three peas? what a cliff hanger!
Don't Run With Scissors!
You raise a good point. I promise not to. Much.
This is AWESOME !
Cheers! :-)
Very in an original way! It will be necessary to surprise the husband. In our family of a spaghetti love everything but if to try to prepare so it is possible to surprise with this dish again. I prepare a spaghetti under several recipes, and now there will be one more thanks to you.
Cool. Let me know how it turns out!
ahhaha how funny
Thanks - sometimes a solid pun is all the excuse you need to design a new meal.
