Portman went vegan in 2009 after reading Jonathan Safran Foer’s book Eating Animals, and is actually slated to voice narrate a new film based on the book.
“I chose to adapt to a sustainable lifestyle after learning of the health risks and environmental effects that come with the mass production of animals,” Portman told Forbes. “To receive this honor is a valuable reminder to me that I am not alone in this fight.”
We think Portman totally has it right! In honor of Portman’s upcoming award we decided to bring you some copycat recipes of vegan dishes Portman has stated in the past that she loves to eat. Check them out below!
Close out summer by eating one of Portman’s favorite dishes: Watermelon Salad!
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 build up a crust while cooking like this blogger did, but tender on the inside and just so delicious.
