Yes, Chrissy Teigen puts hotdogs in her split pea soup and no, her shakshuka is not traditional (see Chrissy’s rant below). That said, how can anyone resist the irreverent and talented cookbook author’s social posts on what she eats? Here are fifteen times Mrs. John Legend slayed the game on her blog or Instagram, selected from this comprehensive list by our friends at Popsugar Fitness (plus a few of our personal faves from her feed). All captions are Chrissy’s own…
Chrissy Teigen knows her sh*t. She came out with her first cookbook, Cravings, last year, but she’s been sharing her recipes on her blog, So Delushious, and Instagram for a long time, and not only with laugh-out-loud sassy descriptions but also with expert-level tips. Keep reading to find cooking tips from her Instagram that we can all apply in the kitchen…
Oven-Baked Zucchini Fries | Cut up zucchini and coat it in panko breadcrumbs for guilt-free “fries.”
Cheesy Eggs (Sans The Cheese) | Low and slow creamy eggs, garlic roasted bacon and burst tomatoes from this morning! To feed 3, I cracked 10 eggs into a big bowl, whisked with a hearty splash of heavy cream and a good amount of salt and pepper. On low, I heated a tablespoon or so of olive oil with a tablespoon of butter in a non stick skillet and poured in the egg mix. Don’t stop gently stirring and scraping (edges and all) for more than a few seconds! The first 10 minutes won’t look like much but then boom…you’ll notice it getting thicker and thicker. As it gets thick enough to stop flowing all over the entire pan, make sure to spread out the eggs throughout the pan and keep stirring. Like cheesy eggs with no cheese! Then out of nowhere, the moisture is mostly gone and you’re done! More than worth the wait! (The bacon is roasted at 400 for 10-15 mins with chopped garlic cloves on a baking sheet and tomatoes tossed in olive oil and shaken in a hot pan for a bit)
