Vulcan Plomeek Soup

No talk of Star Trek would be complete without mentioning Vulcans. Likewise, this list would not be complete without a Vulcan dish. Plomeek soup is a Vulcan soup that appears in numerous episodes of Star Trek. It has even been described as "a bland breakfast soup made from the equally bland Plomeek plant." While there are several recipes floating around the internet for this Vulcan comfort food, we are partial to this one


Rokeg Blood Pie

Blood pie! Yum! Believe it or not, recipes for this do exist. If you feel brave and decide to make your own, rest assured, there is a recipe for you. Don't worry, if you are feeling a bit less enthusiastic about using real blood, you can always substitute raspberry puree and pretend. Your secret is safe with us. 



Looking to try a Ferengi beverage? Look no further than right under your feet! The main ingredient in this elegant dish is a shell-less terrestrial gastropod. Otherwise known as slugs. Ferengi enjoy slugs in a number of ways, slug livers for breakfast, slug steak, and slug soda — the Ferengi favorite beverage. It contains 43% live algae in every bottle. That's certainly more than your RDA.


Klingon Bloodwine

Mmmm, bloodwine! Nothing like bloodwine to warm up your October nights. This Klingon dish is traditionally served warm after it's been mixed with sugar. Sure, obtaining the actual blood for this drink might be difficult — and would probably cost you some vegan friends — but there are plenty of blood-free recipes out there for you. Just add as many packets of unsweetened cherry Kool-Aid as you can. 


Romulan Ale

No party would be complete without Romulan ale. Reportedly, it can cause instant drunkenness and its famously high alcohol content gives it a vivid blue color. Curious to try? You don't have to trek the stars to find this potent drink. The internet can bring these recipes a bit closer to home. Check it out here.
