I imagine it's some kind of nutrient paste for some reason. i don't know if some books have said otherwise, but that's how I picture it. Either that or noodles

Lots of fruits nuts and flakes.


Oh, we're talking about Tau food.

Lots of grains, fruit, vegetables, rice equivalents... not much, if any, meat.

I believe that the Tau would eat 'perfectly' balanced diets, which would consist of vitamin/minerail pastes. These I would expect may contain all the 'meat' that the Tau eat. The lack of water from their home planet would point that the Tau do not have 'fish' as a staple food. It would also rule out rice as a staple food. However the Tau may have their own equivalent to rice which doesn't require ample amounts of water to grow. I would presume that their staple carbohydrate may be akin to a tuber root vegetable. For 'greens' they may rely on hydroponically grown algae. This would prove a very practical type of food as it could be grown anywhere. As for their proteins and dairy I would think that it is all consumed in one as a 'nutrient paste' which would come in a selection of 'flavours'.

It doesn't look like the Tau would care too much about what they eat so long as it keeps them alive.

T'Au does have small, shallow oceans, so they would be able to fish, and it would be pretty easy as there's not much depth to trawl. I'm sure in some areas you could take a net a couple hundred feet deep and you would be dredging the ocean floor in most places.

I didn't say that T'au didn't have water. Just the fact it doesn't have much, and so fish is unlikely to be a subsistence food for the general populace. It would be part of their culture.

i'm reasonably sure that they somewhat human-esque foods...

i mean, codex says that earth caste makes farms produce crops - so we know they eat vegies... and fire caste comes from hunters, so they munch meat too.
