30 Celebrity Favourite Recipes: The Vegan Edit

By Lora O’Brien

I know what it’s like to be celebrity obsessed. We follow our faves on Instagram and pour over their lavish lifestyles with a tiny hint of the green monster. After all, their lives look SO amazing, who can blame us? We want to know their secrets: who are they dating, how is their hair is so shiny, and most importantly, what the heck do they eat?!

Like us, celebs love their food, and we love to know what they’re eating. Case in point? A few years back, Kylie Jenner sent the world into a frenzy when she showed us all via social media how to make her famous ramen noodle recipe, and when  Jay-Z and Beyonce were seen eating at LA’s vegan restaurant Cafe Gratitude, the whole world seemed suddenly eager to try ditching meat.

I’ve scoured the world wide web to bring to you 30 celeb food faves, and then called upon top food bloggers to give us vegan friendly versions of those dishes. From basic dinners loved by Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian to the fancier fare adored by Hugh Jackman and Kristen Stewart, you can now eat like your favourite star.

Celebrity Favourite Recipes: The Vegan Edit

1. Krysten Ritter: Glowing Skin Green Juice

Krysten Ritter is a huge fan when it comes to juicing, and her go-to foods are lots of greens! But whilst Krysten tends to steer clear of the sweeter ingredients such as apple and agave in favour of kale, spinach, parsley, cucumber and celery, this can taste a little harsh if you’re new to green juicing.   This apple, celery and kale recipe will be just the right amount of sweetness and greens, but gradually over time, you could lessen the apple and add lemon for a more sour flavour.

2. Gwyneth Paltrow: Spicy Cilantro Lemonade

Gwyneth Paltrow is a real advocate when it comes to healthy eating, so it’s no surprise that some of her go-to recipes include a salad, seeded bars and this cilantro lemonade. And luckily for us, Gwyneth has shared her exact lemonade recipe with us. The perfect refreshing pick-me-up, this spicy beverage got only has a beauty-boosting dose of vitamin C and alkalizing lemon juice, but it makes a damn good base for tequila if it happens to be happy hour…just saying!

3. Blake Lively: Eggs Benedict

Blake Lively has spoken out about her go-to brunch order: eggs Benedict! But we’re giving the dish a vegan makeover.

4. Jennifer Aniston: Nachos

When the Queen of Comedy states that she loves nachos so much, she’d eat them off the floor – you have to be impressed by girl’s love of those delicious tortillas! Whilst Jen likes to make her own before frying them in some coconut oil, we tend to like our nachos a little on the indulgent side, so we’ve got a recipe here for a fully loaded vegan plate. Salty, crunchy tortilla chips are topped with fresh guacamole, black beans and salad and topped with a layer of cashew-less vegan queso.

5. Nick Jonas: Cuban Sandwich

One third of the Jonas trio has claimed his favourite type of sandwich is the Cuban. The traditional ingredients of roast pork, glazed ham and swiss cheese are replaced with… jackfruit!

The English beauty that is Emma Watson is a huge fan when it comes to Mexican food, a food passion that food duo hot for food share, too – and we’re sure the Harry Potter star would pretty much adore these breakfast tacos.

The Biebs loves some spag bol, and why not? Spaghetti coated in a rich tomato based sauce? Delicious!

Whilst some are adverse to their helping of sprouts, actress Emma Stone loves them. And what’s not to love?

I love Barack Obama. Feel how you like about his politics, I just think he himself is one cool dude, and I loved him even more when he shared his love of broccoli. I feel you, buddy! But broccoli can be a little bland on its own, but it’s not when you turn it into this Thai Broccoli Soup, packed full of an infusion of flavours. Made using lemongrass, ginger, chilies, shallots and lime, this gorgeous green soup is then lightened with sweet potatoes and coconut milk.

24. Demi Lovato: Chocolate Cookies

With Britney Spears comparing chocolate to an orgasm, and pop singer Demi Lovato naming chocolate cookies are one of her favourite recipes, we thought we’d play homage to them both with some super chocolately cookies that would have Britney Spears saying oh baby, baby!

25. Channing Tatum: PB&J Sandwich

Magic Mike start Channing Tatum is one of many who love their faithful PB&J! It was also a favourite of Elvis Presley’s, and that didn’t end to well for his waistline. Watch out, Channing! Still, we adore this grilled sandwich, where the ooey gooey peanut butter oozes out with the sweet and delicious jam. The perfect comfort food!

26. Kate Middleton: Sticky Toffee Pudding

Just when I thought I couldn’t love Kate Middleton any more, I discover her favourite dessert is sticky toffee pudding, and it’s like we’re soul sisters. This recipe’s moist sponge is made using unsweetened  apple puree as opposed to eggs, which balances the sweetness of the dates perfectly. Salted toffee sauce is then drizzled over the sponge and a scoop of plain vanilla ice cream. Whilst I can’t speak on behalf of Kate, I personally would give this recipe the royal seal of approval.

27. Kylie Jenner: Candied Yams

Kylie Jenner is pretty nifty when it comes to the kitchen, and she’s hosted a whole load of cooking videos on her official App. The first one showcased her love of candied yams, and whilst it looks pretty vegan friendly, we’re not so sure the marshmallows she used were without animal gelatin. And…what’s the point of using organic ingredients when you’re just smothering them in chemical fake maple syrup? We’ve found a way healthier version, below.

28. Taylor Swift: Cinnamon Rolls

What does the country turned pop singer T-Swizzle like to eat? A tube of cinnamon rolls are always in her freezer, ready to be enjoyed when those junk food cravings attack. And what’s not to love?
