This week, acclaimed musician Lizzo shared a new recipe on TikTok: vegan Jamaican patties stuffed with plant-based meat and cheese. The Grammy-winning singer created her own dough for the savory pastry using Follow Your Heart’s Vegan Egg instead of animal-derived eggs. She stuffed her patties with two flavors of Violife cheese (mozzarella shreds and cheddar) and MorningStar’s meat crumbles—spiced with Frank’s RedHot Seasoning Blend—and dipped them into a sauce made with avocado and Tofutti’s cream cheese. “Vegan Jamaican spicy beef patty only thing missin’ was some coco bread and a ting,” Lizzo captioned the video.
In April, Lizzo shared her first vegan recipe on TikTok: a spicy vegan version of McDonald’s McChicken sandwich. Instead of the animal products used in the original fast-food classic sandwich, the singer opted for vegan breaded chicken—which she spiced with garlic powder and Frank’s RedHot Seasoning Blend—Best Food’s vegan mayonnaise, lettuce, and a toasted bun.
In 2017, Lizzo revealed that she was vegetarian for seven years and vegan for one. Perhaps cooking in quarantine has inspired Lizzo to return to veganism.
