On September 23, actress and activist Natalie Portman will receive a Continuing Commitment Award at the 27th Annual Environmental Media Association (EMA) Awards to be held in Los Angeles.
Portman went vegan in 2009 after reading Jonathan Safran Foer’s book, Eating Animals, and is actually set to narrate a new movie based on the book.
“I chose to adapt to a sustainable lifestyle after learning about the health risks and environmental effects of mass producing animals,” Portman told Forbes. “Receiving this honor is a valuable reminder to me that I am not alone in this fight.”
We think Portman is absolutely right! In honor of Portman’s upcoming award, we’ve decided to hunt through our Food monster app to bring you copycat recipes for vegan dishes, Portman has said in the past that she loves to eat. Check them out below!
End the summer by eating one of Portman’s favorite dishes: watermelon salad!
This delicious summer watermelon salad from Karielyn Tillman is a light salad with a light dressing but packed with plenty of nutrients from hemp seeds, chia seeds and walnuts.
Portman said she relies on stacks of pancakes and veggie burgers to fuel her before heading to events where she’s not sure she likes the food options.
We don’t blame her – we’d eat these Florian Nouh Veggie Cauliflower Burgers any day of the week if we could!
These are the best veggie burgers you’ll ever make, with only five ingredients! A burger made with roasted cauliflower and lentils, topped with a homemade maple tahini sauce.
And don’t forget the pancakes. These Cloud 9 pancakes from Ayinde Howell are perfectly fluffy.
This is the best vegan pancake recipe you will ever make. You deserve it. To make it soy-free, use soy-free vegan butter.
Additionally, Portman opened up about his love for tofu and black beans.
These burgers are so good. They taste more like beefy burgers than bean burgers. The texture is crispy on the outside, especially if you let them form a crust while baking like this blogger did, but tender on the inside and so delicious.
