Los Angeles – Actor Evanna Lynch may only play Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter film series, but she’s a real-life wizard in the kitchen. That’s why she teamed up with peta2, PETA’s youth division, for a new cooking tutorial that reveals how to veganize some of her favorite Hogwarts recipes.

First, Lynch shows how to make Chocolate Frogs—“Dairy-free and frog-free,” she says, “and chocolate has healing powers”—followed by decadent vegan Butterybeer, noting, “[M]aking it at home will save you a sickle.” Finally, she shares a super-easy recipe for Pumpkin Pasties.

“Whether it’s owls, rats, or hippogriffs,” she concludes, “be a hero for animals by going vegan today!”

peta2—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that each person who goes vegan spares more than 100 animals every year a terrifying and painful death that makes the Cruciatus Curse look like a tickling charm. In addition, vegans are less prone to suffering from heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and obesity than meat-eaters are, and they have a dramatically smaller carbon footprint.

Lynch, whose Twitter bio proudly proclaims, “vegan activist,” recently starred in the critically acclaimed film My Name Is Emily, which was released in theaters last month. She joins a growing list of celebrities—including Krysten Ritter, Christian Serratos, Madelaine Petsch, Torrey DeVitto, Laura Vandervoort, Hayes Grier, and many others—who’ve teamed up with peta2 to promote kindness to animals.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
