Chrissy Teigen’s Most Famous Recipes

Chrissy Teigen is perhaps the most genuine person on Instagram, but our opinion may be biased. The Model, TV show host and cook is so talented in so many things, it’s kind of hard not to love her. Whether it’s singing along to John Legend’s “Headband of the day” videos on her Instagram stories, or it’s making one of her recipes from her cook book ‘Cravings’, she keeps us all thoroughly entertained.

Her book is called Cravings because it’s named after her actual cravings that she had during the pregnancy of her first child. Teigen has also admitted shying away from her cultural roots when she was younger but has grown to adopt more Thai spices in her cooking adventures. One of her biggest inspirations has been her mother, Pepper, featured in the picture above, who is from Thailand.

Here are some of the most loved recipes from her wonderful cookbook!

Chicken Pot Pie Soup with Pie Crust Crackers

This soup version of a popular classic is redefining comfort food. It doesn’t have to be just fried chicken but this pot pie turned soup delight makes it all the more appealing. Plus, the crackers are smooth and buttery and they make it more fun to dunk in soup and slurp away.

Lemony Arugula Spaghetti

Who doesn’t love variations of spaghetti on a cold rainy day in, when you want to hold a bowl in your hand while watching your favorite Netflix comedy special? In her version, you can include crisp pancetta with arugula and season it in traditional Thai seasoning of lemon and red pepper flakes. It’s the pasta we want to indulge in every now and then and truly satiates those cravings.

Mac and Cheese Chrissy style

A classic and one of the easiest things to whip up in the middle of the day, this macaroni and cheese with garlic breadcrumbs is rich and oh-so-satisfying. You still get to taste other flavors without being overwhelmed with the taste of cheese. The addition of garlic breadcrumbs is nothing less of genius and maybe one of the best toppings ever!

Rice porridge and Thai pork

Chrissy really lets her Thai roots shine with her version of a traditional Cantonese dish called congee. In her concoction she includes, garlic, soy sauce, scallions, ginger and ground pork. It’s very easy to make and again, one of the most comforting things to eat, like a warm hug.
