No real recipe here, I just cooked up some spinach pasta, spooned over some fresh ready made tomato and basil sauce then added the ‘eyes’. For them I used a scoop and carefully scooped out some firm silken tofu. Place them on paper towels and gently pat dry. For the pupils, slice some green pimento stuffed olives and place a black peppercorn in the centre. Carefully (the silken tofu will crumble VERY easily!) scoop out a hole for the olive and place it in. To make them look bloodshot I added saffron threads but you’ll need to remove these before eating so it’s a bit fiddly – they still look good without them. I also brushed on some glycerin to make the eyes look ‘wet’ but again that’s not essential.
