Visually Creepy Vegetables Yet Tasty Results

We love how our food demo chef, Suman Shah, put together a Warm and Spooky recipe for our Halloween Market Monster Mash on Thursday, October 26th.  Although the summer market is closed, you can plan ahead for Thanksgiving and grab these ingredients from our Fall Harvest Indoor Market on November 19th. You can just change the name of the recipe to Warm and Savory? What would you call it?
