"So imagine my surprise when I discovered this creamy mashed chokeroot recipe on my last visit to Saleucami. Never would've guessed that mixin' in some falumpaset cheese and simple spices would bring out an inherent sweetness hidin' beneath the chokeroot's surface."
―Strono Tuggs[1]

Mashed chokeroot was a dish that was crafted from chokeroot, falumpaset cheese, and orange-colored spices. It served as a component of the entrée Fried Endorian Tip-Yip and could be found on the Outer Rim planets Batuu and Saleucami. Mashed chokeroot was consumable by humans, Artiodacs, and Togrutas, and was considered a family standard on some worlds.

After discovering a recipe for mashed chokeroot that he considered "stellar," the chef Strono Tuggs served the dish in his traveling diner, Tuggs' Grub. He included a recipe for the dish in his The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, published in 34 ABY.


"Is this single stellar recipe enough to change my opinion about an ingredient I once despised? I dunno. Ask me after I scarf down another bowl or two…"
―Strono Tuggs, about mashed chokeroot[1]

Mashed chokeroot was a cream-colored dish that could be served in bowls[1] and was consumable by humans,[3] Artiodacs,[1] and Togrutas.[4] The dish was made from chokeroot, falumpaset cheese, and orange-colored simple spices. Despite being relatively lacking in flavor on its own, chokeroot could take on a sweeter taste within the recipe for mashed chokeroot. This dish was known as a family standard on some worlds and served as a component of the entrée Fried Endorian Tip-Yip.[1]


"You should have seen how packed this place was when he first arrived. I might have snuck off work early just to get an order of fried Endorian tip-yip or seven."
―Julen Rakab, about Tuggs' Grub — (audio) Listen (file info)[5]

Fried Endorian Tip-Yip was an entrée that used mashed chokeroot as a component.

In 4 ABY,[6] months after the Battle of Endor, mashed chokeroot was served during a Taffral family dinner in the Taffral home on[2] the Outer Rim Territories planet[7] Saleucami. Before the meal took place, Webb Taffral, an Imperial loyalist, alerted Imperial forces to his Rebel Alliance–aligned brother, Dav's, location. When the dinner was interrupted by TIE fighters arriving over the Taffral home, Webb and Dav's father, Glen, stunned Webb with a blaster, causing him to fall face-first into a bowl of mashed chokeroot.[2]

Until around the time that the chef Strono Tuggs stationed his traveling restaurant, Tuggs' Grub,[1] in Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo[8] on the Outer Rim planet Batuu, he considered chokeroot to be an ingredient lacking in taste and deemed it unsuitable for use in his cooking. However, the chef eventually visited Saleucami and discovered a creamy mashed chokeroot recipe that he considered "stellar" and thus reevaluated his opinion of the root. Tuggs included the recipes for mashed chokeroot and Fried Endorian Tip-Yip in his The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, which was authored[1] in 34 ABY.[9]

In 34 ABY,[10] Fried Endorian Tip-Yip was served to Resistance spy Vi Moradi in Tuggs' Grub while it was visiting Batuu.[8] Around the same year,[11] the farmer Julen Rakab and the smuggler Izal Garsea were served Fried Endorian Tip-Yip while at the same establishment. When Garsea left the diner, Rakab's friend, the musician Neelo, came to their table and consumed the farmer's dish.[5] The adventurer Eloc Throno included a brief description of Fried Endorian Chicken, another name for the Tip-Yip dish, which referred to mashed chokeroot as "mashed vegetables," in his book Traveler's Guide to Batuu.[12]

Behind the scenes[]

Mashed chokeroot first appeared in Aftermath, a 2015 novel written by Chuck Wendig as the first installment of Star Wars: The Aftermath Trilogy.[2] The dish is a component of the entrée Fried Endorian Tip-Yip,[1] which was first made available to guests in the restaurant Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, a themed attraction that opened at Disneyland Park on May 31, 2019.[13]

The real-world recipe for mashed chokeroot, included in Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Marc Sumerak's 2019 cookbook, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, uses milk, heavy cream, garlic, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, ground nutmeg, salt, pepper, artichoke hearts, one bay leaf, and the root vegetable parsnip. Additionally, the book's recipe for Fried Endorian Tip-Yip allows for mashed potatoes to be used as a substitute for mashed chokeroot.[1]

  4. 4.0 4.1 A Crash of Fate notes that Fried Endorian Tip-Yip is edible by Togrutas, while Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook establishes that mashed chokeroot is an ingredient of that dish; therefore, Togrutas must be able to consume the ingredients of mashed chokeroot, including chokeroot itself.

  6. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary dates the reunion of Norra Wexley and Temmin Wexley on Akiva—which occurs during the rebellion on Akiva, according to Aftermath—to thirty years before the Hosnian Cataclysm, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY. Aftermath also establishes that the Taffral family dinner happens concurrent to the rebellion on Akiva; therefore, both events must take place in 4 ABY.

  9. 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.
