In case you can’t tell by his name, Kit Fisto is one of the coolest dudes around.

He’s a Nautolan, which explains why he loves an underwater battle. But even when he’s on dry land, he still smiles like he’s having the best time ever. He’s focused during battle, but clearly knows how to cut loose and have a good time. He’s the kind of Jedi I’d grab a beer with, anytime!

Using his knack for strategy, and super fast swimming skills, he helped the Mon Calamari defeat the separatist-backed Quarren.

He also saved Ahsoka from freezing to death, and force pushed 3PO to safety when he was half Roger Roger droid.

I wish we would have had more time with Master Fisto, before his ultimate demise. Let’s all tip a bowl of spinach linguine in his honor.

Kit Fisto Spinach Linguine

Ingredients:
  • 1lb kale, ribs removed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for serving
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1/2 lb spinach linguine
  • black pepper
  • salt
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Directions:
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil over high heat.
2. In a separate small skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until the garlic begins to sizzle.
3. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the garlic is soft and light gold-colored, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, and set aside.
4. Once your water is boiling, add the kale and cook until the leaves are tender, about 5 minutes.
5. Use tongs to remove the kale from the boiling water, and put them into a blender, or large bowl if you’re using an immersion blender. DON’T drain the water! You can use it to cook the Linguine.
6. Add the garlic, oil, and a little bit of the boiling water to the bowl with the kale.
7. Blend into a thick green puree. Add salt and pepper if needed, and set aside.
8. Add the linguine to the boiling water, and cook for 9 minutes.
9. Drain pasta, reserving a cup of the water first.
10. Place cooked pasta back into the dry pot.
11. Add the kale puree, Parmesan cheese, and a little bit of the reserved pasta water.
12. Toss until the pasta is well coated and bright green, adding more pasta water if needed.
13. Serve immediately with more Parmesan cheese, and a drizzle of olive oil.
14. Enjoy before a Sith Lord vertically spins through the air at you, while screeching maniacally.

Hello there!
First, let me just say that Obi-Wan Kenobi is #1 on the short list of Jedi I’d make-out with (Alec or Ewan). He’s one of my all-time faves. I love his whole story!  He trained two Skywalkers, defeated Maul AND Grievous, plus he’s got a glorious beard that has always served him well whenever he needed to ponder something.Sure, maybe he should have finished Anakin off once and for all, but we needed him to (eventually) throw the emperor down that shaft.Bad feelings and happy landings all came together to make him a key figure during the Clone Wars and during the following rebellion against the Empire. Han may have considered him to be an old fossil, but he’ll always be the Jedi master of my heart!
These Dough-Bi-Won Kenobuns are the perfect on-the-go snack for the next time you’re riding a giant feather lizard or chopping off arms at Mos Eisley.

 Dough-Bi-Wan Kenobuns

 

 

Ingredients:
  • Tube of Refrigerated biscuits (I used Grands)
  • 1 egg, beaten

Directions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Remove the biscuits from the tube and place them on the baking sheet.
3. Using a pair of scissors, cut a beard into the bottom half of each biscuit.
4. Use a toothpick to poke eyes into each biscuit (don’t be afraid to make the eye holes big, they’ll shrink during baking).
5. Using a knife, slice a mouth and hair into each biscuit.
6. Brush the face of each biscuit with beaten egg.
7. Bake for 13 minutes.
8. Enjoy while living life as a crazy old hermit.
