One of the classic foodie dilemmas is finding enough time in your busy schedule to cook food that meets your high culinary standards. But it looks like that problem might have just been solved! The gigantic stone heads of Easter Island have started to mumble delicious recipes that you can make at home with ease!

The Easter Island heads, known as moai, were first reported to be muttering quick, healthy recipes under their breath last week, when a team of anthropologists overheard one of them say, “You’re gonna want to let the whole mess simmer for about 10 minutes.” The statue was in the middle of muttering the recipe for a white bean and chorizo soup!

The researchers soon realized that all of the moai were mumbling recipes! Once they finish mumbling one recipe, they get quiet for a few minutes, and then begin mumbling another.

Here are just a few of the recipes that the Easter Island heads have been mumbling to themselves:

All of the Easter Island heads screamed the recipe to this one in unison during an eclipse!

Anthropologist Kirsten Madsen of Columbia University reported that this discovery was extremely exciting for foodies everywhere.

“If you like great food that you can make at home quickly, then you need to get to Easter Island right away,” said Madsen, who noted that the heads clearly didn’t care if anyone heard them mumbling the recipes and would continue to mutter them whether or not anyone was nearby to listen. “They’re mumbling very quietly, like they’re just sort of talking to themselves, so you’ll have to get up real close to their big stone lips if you want to hear the recipes.”

“If you’re a foodie, these are definitely recipes worth hearing,” added Madsen. “They’re quick, they’re healthy, and most importantly, they’re delicious!”

Dr. Madsen has stated that although the Easter Island heads will occasionally mumble the dates of historical disasters such as the sinking of the Titanic and the crashing of the Hindenburg, as well as future dates when terrible disasters as yet unknown will almost certainly occur, they are chiefly mumbling some of the most convenient and tastiest recipes around.

If you make it out to Easter Island and try out any of the recipes these giant stone heads are mumbling, be sure to tell us how you like them! This is such an exciting time to be a foodie!
