- "For those who dwell on the Wawaatt Archipelago—a lush collection of islands home to the planet's capital, Kachirho—these flavorful sprouts have become an essential part of the holiday feast there. Just one taste of their nutty sweetness and you'll be likely to add 'em to your list of Life Day traditions, too!"
- ―Strono Tuggs, The Life Day Cookbook
Wawaatt Sprouts was a vegetarian side dish served as an essential part of Life Day celebrations, specifically among the Wookiees of the Wawaatt Archipelago on the planet Kashyyyk. At some point after publishing his first cookbook in 34 ABY, the Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs included a recipe for the regional dish in his second cookbook, The Life Day Cookbook, stating that the sprouts had a nutty sweetness that would convince anyone to add them to their own Life Day traditions.
Behind the scenes
Wawaatt Sprouts 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 sprouts uses Brussel sprouts, extra-virgin olive oil, black pepper, and dried cranberries. The recipe for the dressing includes balsamic vinegar, packed light brown sugar, and maple syrup.

Notes and references
- Star Wars: The Life Day Cookbook
- 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.
