  • 2 sugar pumpkins


  • 1 cup kamut
  • 1/2 cup celery; 2 stalks
  • 1/4 cup scallions
  • 1/8 cup grape seed oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sage; dried
  • 1/2 tsp ginger; freshly grated
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric; freshly grated
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • dash of cinnamon


  • 1 white sweet potato; medium
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tbsp spirulina powder
  • pinch of sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Cut the tops off the sugar pumpkin and carve the faces. Trace the design before you commit.
  • Cut the sweet potato into 5 large pieces.
  • Fill a 9x13in glass dish with a 1/2 in. water, put the pumpkins top down in the dish along with the sweet potatoes, and bake for 30-45 minutes.
  • Put the kamut in rice cooker, fill with twice as much water, and cook for about 30-40 minutes. After most of the water has been absorbed you can add in the rest of the ingredients, or you can add them in after it's done cooking.
  • Mash or blend the sweet potatoes with the spirulina, non-dairy milk and sprinkle on some salt and pepper.
  • Fill the maggots into the pumpkin heads, push the maggots up along the sides, so they fill the pumpkin's eyes and mouth.
  • Put the vomit by the pumpkin's mouth.


Kamut can be replaced with brown rice to make this a gluten-free dish.
