You might have seen Kristin Cavallari pop up on your TV screen while you were watching Laguna Beach or The Hills, but the TV star could be taking up permanent residence on your kitchen counter with her new cookbook True Comfort: More Than 100 Cozy Recipes Free of Gluten and Refined Sugar ($17), which was released on Sept. 29. This is Kristin’s second cookbook, following True Roots, and all of the 100+ recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free, and free of refined sugar to reflect her personal diet. So you can bet I’ll be spending my free time working my way through (and tasting) every single one of them.
“Comfort food has such a way of bringing us back to certain memories in our lives and turning a bad day around,” Kristin told POPSUGAR. “I think we can all agree that comfort food is where the heart is. I wanted to share those memories with everyone while still staying true to how I eat on a daily basis and show everyone that you can in fact still eat all your favorite dishes without sacrificing the way you feel.”
The book includes recipes for appetizers, breakfasts, soups, dinners, desserts, and more. Some of Kristin’s favorites include the Pumpkin Banana Muffins, Lox Breakfast Bowl, Roasted Cauliflower Tartine, Enchilada Casserole, Chicken Ragu a la King, Nashville Hot Chicken Lettuce Cups, Spicy Peruvian Chicken, and Fried Brussel Sprouts. (Yes, my mouth is watering as I type this.) Ahead, take a sneak peek at three recipes from Kristin’s health-conscious cookbook, and try them for yourself the next time you’re craving something delicious and nourishing.
