12 Foods That Make Ellen Want to Dance
The talk show host and super-funny comedian cares about what she eats. You won't find any animal products on Ellen's table!
Ellen DeGeneres does it all—and she’s powered by a plant-based diet! Here are a dozen dishes that she loves or would work perfectly for her, from our spicy pasta to amazingly crispy tofu.
The funny lady loves a garden burger, and this one gets its bulk and flavor from beans and oats but also contains carrots for color and extra nutrition.
Ellen’s personal chef has formulated several recipes to fit into her vegan lifestyle, including banana oatmeal pancakes. This version couldn’t be easier!
Pasta arrabiata (which translates to “angry pasta”) is on Ellen’s list of favorite foods, so we know she’d like this spicy pasta toss.
One of the best things you can do to vegan-friendly tofu is pan-fry it until it’s crispy; this dish is extra special thanks to a flavorful black pepper sauce.
Ellen’s chef has written a cookbook full of vegan delights! He created an avocado Reuben that must rival this colorful sandwich in tastiness.
Ellen cleverly uses lentils soaked in caper juice to simulate caviar. (Who knew!) This batch of lentils isn’t quite as fancy as that, but it sounds equally delicious. If Ellen’s coming over, be sure to use a vegan yogurt for garnish.
The Emmy winner would undoubtedly enjoy this veggie-heavy dish. The addition of protein-rich edamame gives it a push toward a complete meal.
