It’s fall! Which also means it’s cookbook season! Woot woot! I’m also starting to feel like I got my photography groove back. I love shooting dark and moody photos and am so glad to be done with the bright and airy summer vibes (for now, at least). Now if only the temperature would dip below 80 degrees during the day, here in the Midwest, so it would start feeling like fall…

I’m sharing with you another cookbook recipe today from Anna Jones’ new cookbook, A Modern Way To Cook. As you probably remember, I shared a recipe from her first book a few springs back and raved about how it was one of my favorite books of the year. A Modern Way to Cook is along the same lines as her first book with a ton of simple and nourishing vegetarian recipes. Some of the recipes are a little vague but, as a seasoned cook, I appreciate the casual vibe of them and take it as an open invitation to create my own versions of her recipes. I’ve already book marked a ton of quick dinners (you can see the book marks peeping out in the photo at the bottom of this post) which I’m excited to have on busy work nights.

This soup is mash-up of her Sweet Potato Peanut Stew and her Coconut Corn Chowder. I really wanted that smokey coconut topping in my life so I figured it couldn’t hurt to put it on a fall soup. And guess what? It didn’t disappoint. Subtly sweet and smokey, this soup is just what I needed to welcome in the cooling fall evenings.

    Anna Jones is brilliant. I’ve bookmarked this recipe from A Modern Way to Cook, but I haven’t tried it yet. It’s going next on my list- your photographs look delicious.
