In The Force Awakens, Rey’s Portion Bread seems to get all the attention, and with good reason! It’s pretty neat to see the bread bubble up from just powder and water. But, along with the bread, Rey cooks up sauteed greens of some kind to eat with her bread. They’re only shown on screen for a brief moment, so I’m not entirely sure what kind of plant this dish comes from in the Star Wars universe, but I figured spinach was a pretty close approximation in our world.
I love spinach, and I don’t understand how anyone could dislike it! This sauteed spinach recipe is so easy to make and is perfect as a nutritious side dish to any meal. You can change up the ingredients however you like, too.
Rey’s Sauteed Spinach – A Star Wars Recipe
- spinach, 1 block frozen or 1 bag fresh baby spinach
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. pepper
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 Tbsp. parmesan cheese
- Place the spinach and water in a frying pan.
- Heat the spinach until it is wilted and warmed through, stirring occasionally.
- Add the rest of the ingredients, and mix until combined.
- Serve hot with any meal you like!
You can use either fresh or frozen spinach for this, but I used frozen spinach since it more closely resembled the portion packet Rey receives. This is very basic food, but that’s perfect because it’s what Rey lived off of for so long. It still tastes great, though. Enjoy, and may the force be with you!
