It can be hard to resist a recipe that includes the phrase “lime-scented sour cream” so why even try. Cauliflower is simmered until tender, pureed until smooth, enriched with a scoop of that lime-scented sour cream and then served with crumbles of crisp chorizo and another dollop of that cream.
This simple soup is hauntingly autumnal: sweet pumpkin simmered with spices and stock, then pureed and dressed with a grating of smoked cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.
Slide vegetables in a food processor to make the soup come together quickly.
Soba noodles are classically made with 100 percent buckwheat flour, and those are the ones I seek out whenever possible.
