- "My mother was no Gormaanda, but she knew her way around a kitchen well enough. And whenever she started some of this aromatic broth simmerin' on the stove, you could guarantee the entire family would be back in time for dinner."
- ―Strono Tuggs
Topato stew was a type of stew made from the fruit topato that was consumable by Artiodacs. Its aromatic light green broth could be served in bowls with a garnish of with black seeds and minced green herbs. While at Kat Saka's farm on the Outer Rim planet Batuu around 34 ABY, the farmer Shari offered some topato stew to her former colleague, Julen Rakab, which he accepted. The mother of chef Strono Tuggs taught him how to make topato stew after witnessing his growing passion for cooking. He was fond of the classic soup, and served it from his traveling diner, Tuggs' Grub. Tuggs included a recipe for topato stew in his cookbook The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook at some point after the Battle of Takodana in 34 ABY.
