The supermodel has shared the ingredients for a meal she has enjoyed eating since childhood.

Chrissy Teigen is using one of her mother's home recipes to nurse hangovers and feed her baby.

The supermodel and her singer husband John Legend welcomed daughter Luna in April (16), and Teigen, who is a big-time kitchen devil and the author of a cookbook, titled Cravings, reveals there is one particular childhood meal that has been passed down by her mum she has been preparing since becoming a mother herself.

“My mum is Thai and she would always make this hearty, slow-cooked porridge,” she tells People in their new My Food Story video series. “It just always smelled like home to me. It was a baby food for us because it was such a nice rice porridge.”

But over the years Chrissy has discovered the dish, which is known as Jok Moo, does much more than feed babies.

“Now that I’m not a child eating it, it’s an excellent hangover meal," she laughs.

The versatile dish can be customised to suit whatever taste one might be craving at the moment. Chrissy often spices up the porridge by experimenting with different flavours and meats.

“I loved being able to have control over my own spices and seasonings,” she details, before reminiscing about what she experienced as a child while her mum cooked the meal. “I just remember every piece of pork being so spicy and well seasoned. It had this ginger aroma filling the house.”

Chrissy's core recipe for her Jok Moo includes ingredients such as jasmine rice, ground pork, chicken bouillon, garlic cloves, soy sauce, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, ginger, cilantro, and scallions.
