Dirt Cheap Eats 2009: Kasha’s Kitchen

In the back of the tiny Kennedy’s Natural Foods shop is a lunch counter that caters to customers who crave wholesome but flavor-packed soups and sandwiches. The Power Veggie ($6.89) loads your choice of bread—pick the seven-grain for an extra boost—with carrots, cucumber, avocado, and sprouts; oil and vinegar gives it some tang.

A sandwich of finely chopped chicken salad ($6.89) is simple and well seasoned. The egg-salad sandwich ($6.59) is made with sweet peppers and horseradish mustard. Lentil soup (small $2.99, medium $4.99) is a good choice for a cool fall day. Don’t leave without a gigantic, buttery ginger-molasses cookie ($1.99).

Open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner; closes at 6:30.
