Author Notes: Around the holidays, my mom often serves soup and sandwiches for a low-key meal the night before she’s serving a larger, more labor-intensive one. Inspired by a side dish of cauliflower with pears, sage, and hazelnuts from Andrew Carmellini’s Urban Italian, I took these same flavors and turned them into a fall soup.

The pear is definitely the secret weapon here -- it adds a subtle sweetness and marries perfectly with the other flavors.

cauliflower + hazelnut soup with fried sage — whats cooking good looking

It's where I get most of my produce. On Mondays, I strap on some comfy shoes, grab my reusable bags, and walk (or bike) over there with my list of produce for the week. I've been doing this for several months now, so I have started to know the market well, along with some of the vendors and farmers. I have my routine down and my favorite stops. Mondays have become my favorite day because the market is slightly less crowded in the early morning, and a couple of my favorite vendors are there on that day.

The other day, I picked up a gorgeous head of broccoli and several cauliflower heads from them, and as I was checking out I had a little conversation with a woman who runs the farm. Really? I told her that there were no words to express how much I appreciated that. Cauliflower + hazelnut soup with fried sage Method. Braised coconut spinach with chickpeas and lemon [Vegan] Jaymi's Notes:This was an iffy recipe for me, so when I sat down with a hot bowl of the braised coconut spinach loaded up with sundried tomatoes and chickpeas, all I could say was, "Wow!

Braised coconut spinach with chickpeas and lemon [Vegan]

" I wasn't sure what to think with this mix of ingredients, especially the coconut milk which is not usually something I have in meals at home or in restaurants. And while my partner kept her doubts to herself, she did let me know afterwards (as she was happily gobbling down a bowlful next to me) that she was surprised at how delicious it turned out to be. The dish is both sweet and tangy, with the strong flavor mellowed out by the blander chickpeas and spinach. Sundried tomatoes add a great twist to the texture and a different quality of sweet than the coconut milk, making the flavor all the more complex. I cut the recipe in half, which still made more than enough for the two of us, but I did not cut the lemon zest and juice in half.

Golden Beet Borscht

Until now. Truthfully, I find the deep purplish-red color of traditional borscht absolutely stunning. In spring and fall though, bright golden beets fill the markets, so I just couldn’t resist some golden beet borscht… something new and different.

It’s a simple way I learned from watching my mom as a kid. While I love that deep red color, there’s something pretty about this golden hue, too.

This is a great make-ahead soup… make a batch, refrigerate or freeze it, then bust it out and reheat when you’re ready to use and hungry.

All I want to do is curl up in the icebox with an Amy Tan novel and come out when it’s Halloween.

But, I still have to eat, and so do the rest of the lizards I call family.
