Ewoks: friend or foe? It depends on whether they’ve strung you up for a BBQ or whether they think of you as some kind of god.
Still it’s hard to resist a furry face and sweet eyes, but instead of heading to the Endor moon, now you can make your own little Ewok pal at home — with an Ewok Rice Bowl! These flavorsome bowls are made with brown rice imbued with rich coconut milk, topped off with vegetables and fruit. In the end you’ll have a happy little rebel friend looking back at you.
When you’ve finished making this delightful dish, you’ll surely be accepted as part of the tribe.
