The Best Things We Ate This Month

Every month, we round up the best things we’ve eaten—recipes we’ve made, restaurant meals, and impromptu dinners that turned out so good we just have to share them. Here are this month’s favorites:


Late in the summer I really start looking forward to cooler temps and itching for some comfort food. This mushroom & chickpea marsala was exactly what I needed. It was warm and comforting and packed with fall flavors, but still light enough to enjoy before the official start of fall. —Alissa

We’ve been getting big heads of cabbage every week from our CSA and while these are my go-to methods for using up cabbage, we had so much of it that I had to find some more ideas. Ideas like: Curried Cashew and Red Cabbage Stir Fry! I used green cabbage in it and omitted the carrot because I didn’t want to buy one, but the recipe was crazy easy and delicious served over quinoa. —Kiersten

If it’s possible to be obsessed with a pile of kale, I totally am. Veg-friendly French Meadow Bakery & Cafe‘s Raw Kale Caesar Salad is literally that: a gigantic plate of massaged kale. But it’s tossed with garlic puree, then topped with a poached local egg, crispy kale chips and the tiniest shaving of parmesan. I don’t know how they do it, but these few simple ingredients (about 75% of which are kale—and none of which are croutons, romaine or Caesar dressing) combine to make the most perfect, savory, satisfying salad I’ve ever had. —Dana

Now that the weather is finally getting cooler, I’ve started adding soup back to my weekly menu. This 10-spice vegetable soup from Oh She Glows is hands down one of my very favorites! Plus, I always wind up with extra to freeze, which is a huge plus in my book! —Ashley

    I’ve actually been to the French Meadow Cafe and I loved it! I’ll definitely have to give that kale salad a shot 🙂

    I made the 10 spice soup three weeks ago and it was by far the most delicious soup I think I’ve ever made. Love love loved it!

    That soup sounds amazing. I’m so happy the temperatures are dropping so I can add soup back to my meals.

    When I say I live off of Angela’s 10 Spice soup during the winter, I’m not kidding. FAVORITE!
