Jimmy Fallon praised Natalie Portman‘s vegan cooking videos on a recent episode of The Tonight Show.

The T.V host said he was ‘obsessed’ with portman’s Instagram videos – where she often shares plant-based recipes such as matcha donuts to her 7.2 million followers. 

‘Delicious, varied, and easy’

“I feel like I don’t really have a lot of skill, so I always feel like if I can do it anyone can do it…” Portman explained. 

“I disagree, I think you have skill. I mean everything is chopped perfectly… honestly I’m obsessed. And its also vegetarian, or is it vegan even?” Fallon asked. 

Portman replied: “Yes. I mean, I’m vegan and a lot of people think we’re like eating alfalfa in the corner you know.”

“So I like showing that there’s really delicious, varied, easy things that you can do at home that your kids will eat that are plant-based.”

Pro-vegan speech

Last year, Portman delivered a pro-vegan speech to 16,000 students youth activism event in California.

During her talk, Portman spoke about the link between feminism and veganism, and how female animals are exploited so people can consume eggs and dairy.

Only after I became active in women’s issues did I realize that my veganism was related to those very issues,” Portman told attendees

“Dairy and eggs don’t just come from cows and chickens, they come from female cows and female chickens. We’re exploiting female bodies and abusing the magic of female animals to create eggs and milk.”
