3. Make Frankenstein’s green skin

First peel the cucumber, cut its edges and chop it so it’s the length of the toast. Using the same peeler, peel it on the same spot into ribbons to cover the entire piece of toast.

4. Make the eyes

Slice a carrot thinly and make the eyes’ base. Then take a sharp pointy knife and cut the top and bottom of a black olive to make the eye’s center (or use a slice from a pitted olive).

6. Make the scar

We painstakingly made Frankenstein’s side scar with leftover cooked white rice grains, but the scar can also be made from tofu, cooked spaghetti or any other long white ingredient found at hand.

7. Finish the Frankenstein toast

After layering the avocado spread, cucumber slices, nacho hair, carrot and olive eyes, and the scar, it’s time to finish it off with a thin slice of red bell pepper for the mouth, half cucumber slides as ears, and a small emerald caper as a nose.

8. Make the apple bites

Slice each apple into 4 sections and cut each section into thinner slices to make the lips. Remove the core and seeds from each slice.

9. Chop the Almond teeth

Roughly peel and chop almonds to look like crooked teeth (some brown almond skin improves the effect).

10. Construct the Apple Bites

Get a pair of apple slices and spread jam or peanut butter onto each of them and press in some teeth. For a nut-free option, sunflower or pumpkin seeds can work in a pinch.
