Suitable occasions for making it:
- 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
Step 1: Ingredients
- A brick of super firm tofu
Step 2: Carve the body
The first step is to carve your yeti's body. Try to carve it all out of a single brick of tofu, being careful not to make it too thin and flimsy at any point. There's no need for fine detail here; just go for the main features. Be sure to give it a wide, sturdy base so that it can stand up. That is to say, give it bigfeet.
As you can see, nearly all the structure of my yeti's body was concealed by its hair later on. I also decided that my yeti was too short, so added a separate head.
Step 3: Voodoo time
Repeat in varying directions and lengths until the tofu body is riddled with spaghetti spikes. At this point it should look more like a sea urchin than a yeti.
Step 4: Ready the cauldron
Step 5: Boil and bubble
If your yeti's hair is sticking out of the water, you may need to cover it with an upturned pot so that the steam will cook the dry spaghetti enough for it to turn limp and flop into the water.
Once your yeti is cooked, carefully remove it from the water and drain it in a sieve.
Step 6: On the shoulders of giants
Step 7: Barbershop time
Try to choose appropriately sized scissors that won't shear your yeti in half.
