Green Sauce

2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
3 C (or 3 rough handfuls) of baby spinach
10 almonds
splash of lemon juice
½ C (125 ml) avocado oil (or oil of your choice)
sea salt to taste
2 Tbsp (30 ml) vegan ‘Parmesan’

Vegan ‘Parmesan’

100 g raw cashews
4 Tbsp (60 ml) nutritional yeast
¼ tsp (1,75 ml) garlic salt

To Assemble

Fry’s Chickpea and Quinoa Falafels
spaghetti pasta or veggie noodles of your choice – we used spinach and cauliflower noodles
vegan cheese slices for the monster’s body
radishes or mushrooms for teeth
peas, cooked

Green Sauce

Blitz all of the ingredients together using a Nutribullet, jug or stick blender to form a smooth sauce. Add more oil if necessary to reach your preferred consistency. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and lemon juice.

Vegan ‘Parmesan’

Blitz all of the ingredients together using a Nutribullet or a jug blender to form a fine powder. Store in an airtight container.

To Assemble your Monster

Preheat the oven to 180 ºC.

Place the Fry’s Chickpea and Quinoa Falafels onto a baking tray and bake for 15-30 minutes until heated through.

Cook the spaghetti pasta or veggie noodles according to packet instructions.

Use vegan or dairy-free cheese slices to create the body of your monster. Radishes or mushrooms can be used to cut out teeth.

If using spaghetti, dress with a coating of the green sauce. On a serving plate, create the body of the monster using pasta or veggie noodles and add the Fry’s Chickpea and Quinoa Falafels as a mountain element.

Place all the elements to create the monster image together. Serve with extra green sauce for dipping and extra vegan ‘Parmesan’ on the side.
