Rey's Portion Bread, the final product.
Rey's Portion Bread, the final product. has released a recipe for “Rey’s Portion Bread,” so you too can eat the disgusting slop forced on Jakku scavengers by Unkar Plutt’s monopolizing business practices. The final results will look (and probably taste) nothing like Rey’s Portion Bread.

Here are the ingredients from you’ll need to make Rey’s Portion Bread for yourself:

  • ½ teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons cake flour
  • 1-½ tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon matcha powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

Cooking it is simple, but not as simple as it is in The Force Awakens. First, use the oil to grease the inside of a mug. Add all the dry ingredients to the mug, stir, then stir in the wet ingredients. Cook in the microwave on high for 45 seconds, then serve.

The final results aren’t likely to get your lips smacking, but they do look like wretched rations so… mission accomplished?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens built a lot of hype on the premise that it would be a return to the practical effects movie-making of the Star Wars Original Trilogy. Now that more and more details from the production are coming out (a well-deserved victory lap), it’s clear that J.J. Abrams and co. were not messing around. The astounding complexity in creatures like Jakku’s thirsty ass-crack pig, the Happabore, are one thing, but even tiny touches like Rey’s bread required hours of detailed work.

While this recipe lets you make Rey’s Portion Bread (or a vague simulacrum) in your microwave, the special effects work put into the self-rising food is astonishing.

The bread itself is a painted inflatable bladder. Timing was key, as the bladder was inflated simultaneous with the liquid being drained from the bowl.

EXCLUSIVE: We have the scoop on what this thing tastes like!

Now you can eat your own version of that inflatable bladder, gross.
