Khloe Kardashian is into fashion, entertainment and business. And it looks like the reality star is into cooking as well. Kardashian spoke with Food & Wine magazine about her love of cooking and even shares some of her favorites dishes and what she likes to cook for husband Lamar Odom.
Best Thing About Cooking
“Cooking to me is really relaxing, and I love to try new things for my husband. I love to cook everything from scratch, so even if it’s biscuits, it’s not like I’m cooking Marie Callender’s biscuits. Lamar doesn’t really get how long things take to cook, and he wants me to make Thanksgiving feasts all the time.”
Lamar’s Favorite Meal
“I make a sweet potato soufflé and a green bean dish with smoked turkey legs. I put green beans in a big pot on the stovetop with smoked turkey legs and simmer it for four to five hours. I wait until the meat literally falls off the bone, and it really adds a ton of flavor to the green beans. I drain the liquid and let it simmer a little bit so more juices come out of the turkey meat and green beans. It’s really a heavy meal, but he’s a big, growing man, so he loves it. It’s my favorite meal to cook because it makes him happy.”
Fast and Easy Kardashian Family Recipe
“If I don’t have a lot of time and I know Lamar wants a hearty meal, I make whole wheat pasta primavera with three different types of peppers, carrots, zucchini and spicy Italian turkey sausage sautéed in olive oil with a few spices. It’s really, really easy to make. The longest part is the prep, just cutting and cleaning all the vegetables, but other than that it’s a very fast dish that my mom used to make. I make a great cheese bread to go with it. The cheese bread is a sourdough roll with garlic, salt and mozzarella cheese; it’s very, very yummy and fattening.”
Go-To Healthy Meal
“I’m a salad person. I make a lot of salads to have in my fridge throughout the day. I love spinach salads with pecans or walnuts and a fruit. Right now I’m into spinach with pecans, a little bit of feta cheese and pears. It doesn’t need dressing because the pears are so sweet and their juices come out as the salad sits in the fridge. I like to eat salads at most meals, and if I make baked chicken breast, I’ll add that.”
Favorite DIY Chicken Wings
“I make a lot of Thai chile chicken wings. I just glaze them in a Thai chile sauce that I make with Thai chile powder, a few other spices and olive oil—and bake them for about an hour. They’re really good and have a little tang and spice. I like spice, but not too much, just a little bit to add some flavor. I don’t think the wings are that bad for you, right? I personally don’t eat pork or red meat. Lamar and my brother Rob live with me, and they don’t eat a lot of red meat either. They’ll order a steak at a restaurant, but I really cook a lot of chicken or turkey in the house.”
“I really like to bake cupcakes, cakes and cookies with my little sisters and my stepkids. It’s more arts-and-craftsy, and it’s a great family activity. I want to learn how to make intense and intricate cakes. Lamar and everyone in this house love sweets, so that’s why it’s fun to make them. The baked goods are all gone in two seconds. I bought a bread maker and made my own pretzels the other day too. My best friend Malika will come over and say, “How are you making pretzels? Why are you making pretzels?” It’s just entertaining for me, and, again, I think it’s therapeutic.”
