On Wednesday, the day new episodes of season 3 of “The Mandalorian” are released, the Star Wars Twitter account posted a video that featured the recipe for pog soup!
The video begins with Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) asked Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), “You’ve never eaten pog soup? Any Mandalorian worth their armor was raised on this since they were his size.”
To make the soup, Star Wars fans need to gather yellow and red bell peppers, diced carrots, diced shallots, diced onions, minced ginger, minced garlic, and olive oil. If that wasn’t enough, they also need coconut milk, vegetable broth, and a variety of spices, including salt, turmeric, coriander, and curry powder.
After roasting the bell peppers, the instructions say to place them in a bowl and cover them with plastic wrap for fifteen minutes. After the time has passed, fans then need to peel, seed, and chop up the peppers before setting them aside.
Next, fans need to heat the olive oil, onions, carrots, and shallot in a pot. When that’s done, fans then need to stir in the spices, including the curry powder, turmeric, coriander, and salt. The roasted peppers and vegetable broth is then added to the pot, which fans then need to bring to a boil.
Once the pog soup is bubbling, fans should lower the heat, cover, and simmer for around thirty minutes. With the heat off, the coconut milk gets stirred in. When that’s done, fans should use an immersion blender and puree the mix until smooth. Even if fans don’t have an immersion blender, it’s sure to make one tasty soup!
The video doesn’t say the quantity of the soup that’s needed, but fortunately, that’s all listed on the Star Wars website for fans of “The Mandalorian” to enjoy. The recipe jokingly adds, “This is the way. To make soup.”
“That looks delicious,” one fan commented. “We’re supposed to believe Bo-Katan did this in a cave on Mandalore???” another follower asked. One user replied, “She probably had like a military rations version of it, just some already prepped instant powders and stuff you throw in water.”
Katee Sackhoff Talks Bo-Kotan’s Motivations For ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 3
In season 3, Bo-Katan finally has the darksaber again after trying to reclaim it from Moff Gideon in the show’s second season. Even though she grabbed it to rescue Din Djarin, she decided to give the weapon back to the titular Mandalorian.
When asked why she isn’t fighting for the darksaber, Sackhoff explained, “This is a person who has fought, fought against her own people. She’s fought forever and she realizes that doesn’t work. You can’t continue to fight amongst yourselves. I think with Din — I don’t know if I’ll go as far as to say that she respects and trusts him — but she doesn’t not. He’s done nothing.”
“If didn’t have the darksaber, he’s done nothing that would make him her enemy. I think that is her problem is that she realizes that she’s not going to fight her people anymore,” she continued. “She’s not going to fight someone who she doesn’t have a reason to fight. Every single possibility, every place that she’s at right now, every direction she’s done before didn’t work before. That’s what she’s trying to figure out.”
Sackhoff agrees that Bo-Katan has a “profound amount of respect” for Din, adding, “She does and she also respects what the darksaber stands for. She doesn’t necessarily think he’s old school as much as she thinks he’s a religious fanatic.”
New episodes of season 3 of “The Mandalorian” arrive on Disney+ each Wednesday.
