Similar to the Korean Steamed buns, this recipe tweaks the recipe to make the pumpkin-like bread instead. You can also add sweet potato fillings instead of the pumpkin!
2. Halloween Kimbap
How about this little mixture of kimbap and the fun of Halloween together? Try it with little monster faces. Easy and simple to make, yet very creative. All you need is roasted seaweed, eggs, rice and some ham.
3. Sushi Brain
Do not let the visual presentation of this dish decrease your appetite. After all, this is to be served as an Appetizer! Re-think what you can make with one avocado, cream cheese, seasoned cooked sushi rice, smoked salmon and red tobiko (flying fish roe).
4. Rice Ghosts
These little cute rice ghosts are a very simple recipe to make yet extremely cute. Season the rice with vinegar and sesame oil, and cut out cute face shapes with seaweed.

Maybe you could take a handful of Zombie boogers while watching your favorite Halloween flick this year. Enjoy this simple creative recipe using Matcha powder and popcorn.
7. Chicken Feet
Many Koreans enjoy eating Chicken feet on a regular basis. But it makes a spooky dish that’s perfect for Halloween. It all depends on how you plate!
