9 Divergent-Inspired Recipes So You Can Feast Like It’s Post-Apocalyptic Chicago

We’re not going to lie — we've been counting down the days until Divergent's theater release for months. MONTHS. But while our girl Shailene Woodley jumps off buildings, throws knives, and generally kicks ass, we’ll be digging into a faction-inspired feast. From Candor ice cream to Dauntless cake, we’ve rounded up the recipes you need to eat like a Divergent. For us, it’s food before faction. Always.Image: Brown Eyed Baker

Dauntless Muffins

For Dauntless initiates, muffins mean target practice. With guns. But if you’re not up for William Tell-style sport, we won’t judge — as long as you whip up a batch of these Baked by Rachel banana and walnut muffins instead.

Factionless Scrambled Eggs

If we’re being super authentic, we’d eat scrambled eggs in tin cans and pass them around the room, à la Evelyn and the factionless. But this recipe from Family Fresh Cooking tastes just as good on a plate.

Amity Bread

While at Amity headquarters, Tris realizes the faction’s famous bread is laced with mood-enhancing serum. Hummingbird High’s artisan bread gives us the warm fuzzies too — but, you know, without the happy drugs.

Abnegation Chicken

Because Stiffs aren’t exactly Martha Stewart, plain chicken breast is an Abnegation staple. Healthful Pursuit dresses her recipe up with maple and Dijon mustard so you don’t, like, bore yourself to tears.

Factionless Apple Chips

If you’re like Tris, you carry around dried apple slices to feed the hungry. But you don’t have to be factionless to snack on A Cozy Kitchen’s crispy spiced apple chips.

Dauntless Burgers

While living with her Abnegation family, Tris had never laid eyes on a burger. But over in Dauntless, you can’t face your fear landscape on baked chicken and peas alone. Thanks, Crepes of Wrath!

Candor Ice Cream

When the going gets tough, the Candor…make ice cream. I mean, if you’re on the brink of war and hosting Abnegation refugees, you better have a batch on hand, right? This burnt caramel bourbon ice cream from How Sweet It Is is just the thing.

Erudite Soda

Erudite may be a bunch of smarty pants, but they’re not much use in the kitchen. Instead of the faction’s sticky-sweet lemon soda, we’ll be stirring up a batch of Joy the Baker’s citrus cordial instead. Pour it over some sparkling water as you talk strategy and rebellion.

Dauntless Chocolate Cake

Since Dauntless takes pride in chocolate cake, we think the faction would have approved of this confection from Brown Eyed Baker. It's six layers of decadent chocolate, each smeared with toasted marshmallow cream. After all, even Dauntless desserts are brave.
