Every few months or so, a group of my friends gets together for an all day movie marathon. We recently watched all 7 Star Wars movies, which took a total of 15.5 hours! In case you’re wondering, we started with Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace. At first, I thought we should start with Episode 4, but it was actually pretty neat to watch the story of the Skywalkers unfold from start to finish.
Of course, food is always an important fixture in these marathons! We create a menu that is themed appropriately for the movie series we are watching. So what exactly is Star Wars themed food? We had fun with this one! Our menu consisted of:
- Wampa Waffles with Boba-berry compote, Clone-conut, and bananas
- Hoth Chocolate
- Amidala Almonds (or “Amid-almonds”)
- Senator Salad
- Pad(me) Thai
- Qui Gon Quinoa
- Chewbacca Chili
- Green bread (like the “one quarter portion” bread-like thing that Rey rehydrates in Episode 7)
While I can’t take credit for any of the recipes, I will share several of those recipes with you via links to the websites that they came from. Have you ever made Star Wars themed food? What did you make? What would you make?
My good friend, Chriselle, said she felt like a mad scientist while making this – adding ingredients little by little and taste testing every step of the way. She wasn’t able to give me exact measurements for anything, but the ingredients consisted of:
- Hersheys Cocoa Powder Natural Unsweetened
- Almond Breeze Vanilla Sweetened
- Dark Chocolate Almond Milk
- Chocolate Almond Milk
Senator Salad: Yellow Mustard Vinaigrette
This was a simple salad consisting of greenleaf lettuce, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, avocado, green onions, carrots, and chive blossoms. Chive blossoms are an AMAZING addition to any salad! They taste just like the green part of the chive plant that we typically eat. Pull the little purple flowers apart, and garnish salad, or anything! The salad dressing that I made to go with is my go-to. It is not only very easy to make, it is absolutely delicious and always a huge hit. This recipe is a modified version of a recipe I found at allrecipes.com.
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1 tablespoon agave nectar
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a jar or bottle with a tight fitting lid and shake until combined.
