If your stomach growls at the sight of the blue pasta-like dish being munched by security officer Morluna-1 in Andor Episode 1, you’re in luck! As it turns out, you can quickly go to the supermarket and recreate them at home. This is because the recipe appears in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire Outpost’s Official Cookbook. The dish pictured is called Ghormaanda’s Shining Blue Noodles and only takes about 20 minutes to make.
Looking at the recipe, we see that the dish’s distinctive blue color comes from one unusual ingredient: Blue Butterfly Pea Tea, a decaffeinated herbal tea that is often drunk on its own or used as a coloring, most often in cocktails and other drinks. The tea is brewed in the same kettle as the rice noodles, giving it a light flavor and, most importantly, a cosmic blue color. Interestingly, under the influence of acid, butterfly pea tea turns purple, which means that the light azure color of the finished dish means that Glowblue noodles are non-acidic.
Other than that, it’s basically a standard noodle recipe, calling for things like garlic, butter, heavy cream, and cherry tomatoes. For those tired of earthy pasta dishes, this is an easy way to feel like you’re eating in a galaxy far, far away from the comfort of your home. It can also be a great option for picky kids; What kid doesn’t love brightly colored food?
If you like Glowblue noodles but don’t feel like doing the dishes, you’re out of luck. While actual Galaxy’s Edge restaurants at Disneyland have a few delicious items on the menu, this particular dish was not among them at the time of this writing. But if you are looking for a culinary accompaniment to Andor, look no further.
