From Stanley Tucci's Soup to Kourtney Kardashian's Brownies, These Are the Best Vegan Celeb Recipes So Far This Year

Around the world, more people are turning to veganism for health, environmental, and ethical reasons. In the US, research suggests that around 4 percent of the population is totally vegan, and many, many more are either vegetarian, pescetarian, or flexitarian. In fact, some research suggests that more than half of Americans aged between 24 and 39 have cut down on animal products. So with that in mind, it’s no surprise that celebrities, too, are changing their dietary habits.

How many celebrities are vegan?

Some A-listers, athletes, and TV stars are totally vegan (check out our list of 36 vegan celebrities, which includes people like Travis Barker, Joaquin Phoenix, and Venus Williams), while others, like this list of celebs moving away from meat demonstrates, are just interested in the meat-free movement. 

It’s hard to say exactly how many celebrities are vegan or are considering going vegan, but one thing is for sure: many of them love to share their own attempts at plant-based cooking online. And we have to say, some of them are pretty good. For some of the best vegan celebrity recipes so far this year, including tasty soups, cookies, cocktails, and more, keep reading. 

The best vegan celebrity recipes so far this year

1 Stanley Tucci’s Soup

Actor Stanley Tucci is known for his love of Italian food, which he has explored, alongside his own heritage, in his popular travel series Searching for Italy. But while the show often sees Tucci trying other people’s food, he also loves to make his own. In July, he posted this recipe for string bean minestra, a vegan-friendly one-pot soup recipe he learned from his grandmother.

2 Katie Couric’s Erewhon Kale Salad

Erewhon is one of Los Angeles’ most luxurious and expensive stores to stock up on food. But if you can’t stretch to the prices, don’t worry: you can make copycat versions of the store’s ready-to-eat hot food bar dishes from home. Katie Couric recently made the iconic, vegan-friendly Organic Kale With White Bean Salad, for example.

5 Kourtney Kardashian’s Brownies
