"My spin on this classic leaves the 'meat' outta the 'meatball' to keep things all-inclusive while still feelin' warm, comfortin' and familiar, no matter what system you call home. Of course, you're not required to celebrate any specific midwinter holiday in order to enjoy these meatless morsels. But there's a good chance they'll bring you good cheer either way."
―Strono Tuggs, The Life Day Cookbook[1]

Solstice Vegispheres were a type of vegetarian meatball made by the Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs, who wanted to make a dish that could be consumed by anyone while still feeling warm, comforting, and familiar. At some point after Tuggs published his first cookbook[1] in 34 ABY,[2] the chef included a recipe for Solstice Vegispheres in his second cookbook, The Life Day Cookbook. Although the book was themed around the Life Day festival and other midwinter holidays, Tuggs stated that one did not need to be celebrating any particular festival in order to enjoy the dish.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Solstice Vegispheres were created as a recipe for the 2021 Star Wars: The Life Day Cookbook, a recipe book written by Jenn Fujikawa and Marc Sumerak. The out-of-universe recipe for the spheres uses torn white bread, soy milk, olive oil, minced onion, minced celery, grated carrot, minced white mushrooms, garbanzo beans, ground allspice, cardamon, salt, ground nutmeg, and black pepper. The gravy uses coconut oil, all-purpose flour, vegetable broth, full-fat coconut cream, salt, black pepper, and minced fresh parsley for garnish.[1]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 Star Wars: The Life Day Cookbook
  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.
