Luna Lovegood Actress Evanna Lynch Shares Three Harry Potter-Inspired Vegan Recipes

Accio all of ‘em!

Actress Evanna Lynch, known for her role as Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter, has turned her focus to cooking vegan treats.

The 25-year-old animal activist has teamed up with peta2 - the youth program at PETA - to inspire younger generations to adopt a vegan diet. And what better way to do so than by “veganising her favourite Hogwarts recipes”?

Lynch shared vegan recipes based on classics such as chocolate frogs, pumpkin pasties and butterbeer. And they look absolutely divine.

Chocolate Frogs

:: 1/2 16-oz. bag vegan dark chocolate chips

:: Or just 1 16-oz. bag of your favourite vegan chocolate chips


:: Place the chocolate chips in a shallow, microwavable bowl.

:: Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat for another 30 seconds.

:: Repeat until the chocolate is mostly melted. Stir until melted and smooth.

:: Pour into frog-shaped moulds and place in the freezer for two hours.



You will need:

:: 3/4 cup apple juice or cider

:: 1 tsp. vegan butter, melted

:: 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

:: 1/8 tsp. nutmeg

:: 1 pinch ginger

:: 1/4 cup nondairy milk or creamer or 1 scoop vegan ice cream
