Protogen Proto-Noodles

Protogen, an Earth based research and security company, were in charge of studying a silicate anomaly from Phoebe station.  After analysis, it was believed to be extrasolar in origin and could potentially change some of what we know about science. They called it the protomolecule and it changed everything!  

Typically, when we see the protomolecule in action, it often expresses itself in the color blue.

If you feel you can tangle with the protomolecule, then this recipe is for you.  The dish does not exist in the book or tv series as it is merely Fan Food Art.

This recipe isn’t in the books of the show. I just wanted to make something protomolecule blue.   It’s fun fan food art!


  • Noodles
  • 1 clove of garlic (chopped)
  • 1.5 tbsp of butter
  • Blue food coloring
  • 2 tbsp of water
  • Good Ziplock bag


Boil your pasta 2-3 minutes less than the recommended finish time.  
Drain well and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process.
Add your water to a good ziplock bag, and squeeze out 20 drops of food coloring.
Put the cooked and drained pasta in the bag, agitate gently, and let stand on each side for 1 minute. Rinse off all excess dye and let sit momentarily for the sauce to finish.
Melt your butter and add the garlic on low. When the garlic is slightly golden brown, toss in your protomolecule noodles.
 Stir Fry them for the remaining 2-3 minutes that you had left on the original boiling time.  
Plate it up and tear it up. Until next time, Slow Zoners.
