STAR WARS Recipes

It never really dawned on me that fans would come up with recipes to accompany these movies, but in retrospect, it only makes sense, and the fad appears to go way back, as seen in this 1983 instance below. Will they issue a new recipe for the newest trailer?

I've enjoyed Star Wars ever since the 1st one & I've enjoyed them a lot but.... seriously enough is enough.

Live long & prosper.

Wasn't Yoda a vegetarian?

Three pounds of spinach boiled with three pounds of lamb and all the unused spices stuck in the back of your pantry... Oh YUM!

I remember, but can't seem to track down, a snake slithering through Skywalker's stew at his first night in Yoda's hut. How come that isn't on the ingredient list?

YUK!!! I think I'll settle for the amount of Force I can get from eating a salad.

I got up and walked after the 1st 15 minutes of the 1st one. Life is too short to waste, it was no 2001.

Can't compare Clark's 2001 with Lucas' Star Wars! A whole different genre of film.

Kubrik's 2001...please! Mr. Clarke was hardly there.

The movies or the books? I did have the Star Wars book which came out before the movie. It was based on the screenplay. It is the only science fiction book/movie combo where the movie is much better than the book. (Of those I've read/seen) I traded off at the used book store before the movie came out! Damn!!!
So Clarke and Lucas were in on both.

This stew too much work is!

@ViC: You're right. Clark didn't have much (anything?) to do with the movie but I finished the book the AM before seeing the movie and they're firmly linked in my memory as the movie was just a visualization of the printed word.

@Bill: This stew, too much work it is! Aware of syntax one must be!

With Alex, I agree; the stew should have been vegetarian. Also, a rootleaf without root? I saw Yoda's stew more like an African Mafe; root veggies, leaf veggies, peanut butter, spices and remove the snake, it's not an ingredient, it's the household pet. Serve on rice or whatever cereal was popular in the area.

@Expat, I saw the 2001 movie several times first. Reading the book later, I became aware of the power of the Kubrik Jedi. Book of the Star Wars, BMN?? Strange an item how that is.

It has been 40 years. The book was not called Star Wars, but on the back cover was the 'Soon to be in theaters near you'. I don't remember the name or the author. I saw the movie a few months later on it's first release.

Kubrick and Clarke co-wrote 2001 the movie with Clarke also writing the book at the same time.

My favorite version of the Star Wars book is the one by Shakespeare. In English, alas; I can't read it in the original Klingon.
