These Are the Dishes You're Looking For: Recipes for Celebrating May the 4th
If you're celebrating on May 4, the unofficial Star Wars Day, it's time to get cooking on some Star Wars-inspired specialties. From Baby Yoda cookies to Chewbacca Chili, you'll be able to make an entire meal (drinks included) themed after your favorite Star Wars movies and shows. May the Fourth be with you as you try any of these delicious recipes.
Princess Leia Cinnamon Buns
It's one of the most iconic hairstyles in all of movie history. Celebrate the fashion and the fierceness of Princess Leia Organa, one of the Rebel Alliance's greatest leaders, with this round and wonderful recipe that's a perfect recreation of her famous 'do.
Jagermeister and peppermint schnapps make an out-of-this world combination, perfect for night of gambling in Canto Bight or an evening of fisticuffs in Oga Garra's Batuu cantina.
Check out the comment on this chili from Josi, who says, "We renamed it Chewbacca Chili because it's such a hardy and stout chili that we felt it was appropriate. My fiancé and I have made this chili recipe multiple times and it is OUTSTANDING! It is really best if you can allow it to cook and simmer all day before serving it."
The Mandalorian's Baby Yoda might be sipping a mugful of tea, but perhaps it could also be a mugful of the aptly named Yoda Soda. Ginger ale and lime sherbet are combined to make a refreshing themed drink.
Rey's Portion Bread
While living on Jakku and hunting for Luke Skywalker, Rey survives on Portion Bread, which magically turns green and puffs up when water is added. These muffins are a great lookalike for her meals.
Baby Yoda Cookies
Clip off the head off of an angel-shaped cookie cutter to make a Baby Yoda shape for your favorite cut-out sugar cookie recipe. Mix up some green, brown, white, and black frosting, and perhaps add some candies for those big, soulful eyes, and your May the Fourth celebration will be right on trend.
TIE Fighters Pasta
The Twin Ion Engine (TIE) fighter are the Imperial fleet's single-pilot vehicles that engaged in dogfights with Rebel X-wings. If you're heading to the dark side on Star Wars Day, you'll find that bow tie pasta, chicken, and a creamy sauce are the perfect fuel for your journey.
Jedi Mind Trick
Maybe it's the four different types of liquors, or possibly it's the presence of ice cream, but recipe creator Eric Lee says, "This is the best cream drink in the whole entire world. If you like creamy drinks, you will be a slave to the Jedi Mind Trick!"
As the legendary Wookie warrior from the planet of Kashyyyk, Chewbacca certainly deserves recognition on Star Wars Day. Celebrate Han Solo's Millennium Falcon co-pilot with a "chewie" cookie that's named for him.
