"I got off the Hutts' planet as soon as I had the chance, so I wasn't able to collect any of these disgustin'-yet-delightful delicacies for my pantry. Fortunately, though, the worst experiences often inspire the best dishes, and I was able to come up with somethin' equally delicious that's only half as grotesque."
―Strono Tuggs, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook[1]

Huttese slime pods were a food consisting of green-colored lumps with red seasoning. The Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs created the dish after spending time on Nal Hutta, a planet inhabited by the Hutt species, on an unsuccessful search for exotic spices. After he ran afoul of the Hutts and was captured, he successfully bartered his talents as a chef to secure his freedom from the galactic gangsters. He was surprised to discover that slime pods, one of the small creatures that Hutts snacked on, were delicious.[1]

Although Tuggs was unable to collect any of the slimy swamp-dwelling creatures in his haste to leave, they inspired the main course that shared their name.[1] In 34 ABY,[2] he published the recipe for Huttese slime pods in his cookbook The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook along with an anecdote about how he created them.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Huttese slime pods were mentioned in the 2019 recipe book Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, which was authored by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Marc Sumerak. The out-of-universe ingredients are gnocchi, fresh spinach, pistachios, minced garlic, olive oil, lime juice, avocado, grated Parmesan cheese, heavy cream, salt, cannellini beans, and a garnish of sriracha. The book classifies the recipe as suitable for vegetarian diets, and notes that it yields "2 human servings, or one Hutt appetizer."[1]

  2. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook establishes that the in-universe book was published at the same time as when the First Order was searching for the Resistance base on Batuu. As that search occurs in Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire, which is set in 34 ABY according to the reasoning here, the cookbook must have been published in 34 ABY.
