veganorzo

The Oscars are tomorrow! Whether you’re watching them at a party where you’ll be dolled up in fancy clothes or at home in your sweats, it’s fun to eat some festive food while you enjoy Hollywood’s biggest awards show. Chances are, the nominees are eating pretty strictly leading up to the event (gotta look good in those gowns), but luckily, us regular plebes don’t have to do that. Still, I’m bringing you some recipes that this year’s female nominees would most likely love. From Jennifer Lawrence‘s favorite Philly cheesesteak to Amy Adam’s brussels sprouts, here are six Oscar party recipes inspired by the actresses nominated this year.


Amy Adam's Brussels Sprouts

Amy Adams, nominated for Best Supporting Actress for The Master, loves Julia Child's brussels sprouts with cheese and butter. She should know, since she played Julie Powell in the Julia Child biopic Julie and Julia. Recipe via Sugar and Spice by Celeste

Jennifer Lawrence's Philly Cheesesteak

Jennifer Lawrence, the Best Actress nominee increasingly known for her "F You Hollywood" ways, has spoken before about her love for Philly cheesesteaks. Here's an easy way to make your own. Recipe via CuliCurious

Helen Hunt's Green Juice

Nominated for Best Supporting Actress for The Sessions, Helen Hunt was recently spotted at LA's Pressed Juicery, getting her juice on. Try this simple green juice if you'd like an easy entrance into the celebrity juicing fad. Recipe via Elana's Pantry

Quvenzhané Wallis' Stir Fry

Quvenzhané Wallis, the youngest Best Actress nominee ever, loves a stir fry. Aww! Try this with veggies and seitan. Recipe via Eating Well

Jessica Chastain's Vegan Fried Chicken

Jessica Chastain, nominated for Best Actress for Zero Dark Thirty, is apparently an amazing cook of vegan soul food. She'd probably dig this recipe for vegan fried chicken. Recipe via Hell Yeah It's Vegan

Anne Hathaway's Vegan Orzo

We've written a ton about the press coverage award to Anne Hathaway's crash diets for Les Miserables ("oatmeal paste") and The Dark Knight ("kale and dust") but this Best Supporting Actress nominee has also said that on her current vegan diet, she eats a lot of pasta. Try this yummy vegan orzo dish as you watch to see if she'll cry again when she wins. Recipe via PopSugar
