Alice Waters' Spicy Cauliflower Soup

This recipe comes from "The Art of Simple Food" which is a staple cookbook in my family. The soup itself is very filling and has a great punch to it. If you're not crazy about spicy food you will definitely need to tone this recipe down. Even with a dollop of plain yogurt the soup is spicy, hence the name.  This soup keep well so plan on having leftovers. If you do have leftovers, store the soup on its own and only top with the yogurt, lime and cilantro when ready to serve again.

Roasted Delicata Squash

I had never cooked with delicata squash before this recipe and was a little bit skeptical during the whole process. Being unfamiliar with the squash, I though there wasn't enough flesh to merit roasting. I also worried the the skin would end up being too tough. Luckily I was proven wrong and this easy side dish was absolutely delicious.

The biggest benefit of delicata squash is how easy it is to prepare. It's a small squash and you don't need to peel it. The peel soften while roasting and is best left on the squash since you may end up with very little left to roast if you do peel them. I found these squash at our farmers market and have also seen them at a co-op. I have never seen them in our regular grocery stores so they may not be the easiest item to find. If you ever find them buy a few and try them out.
