As far as cozy winter food goes, it's hard to beat a Shepherd's Pie. It's hearty and warming, perfect for the days when the sun sets at 5 and it's too cold to leave the house. As much as we enjoy the traditional version, we also love a plant based option, using lentils in place of ground meat. The tahini is a great substitute here for butter in the mashed potato topping, and adds a rich, creaminess to the filling. Our founder, Rachel's husband and kids enjoyed this dish for dinner the day we shot this picture and gave it a big unanimous thumbs up!
"I usually toss cooked vegetables into my dinner pastas for added fiber and nutrition. This recipe--which calls for an entire head of cooked broccoli--takes that effort to a whole new level. Half of the broccoli gets chopped and added to the pasta, while the remaining half is pureed into a bright green, tahini-based pesto. The creamy texture of this pesto gives more body to the finished recipe than an oil-based pesto would. Untraditional as it is, it has become by favorite pesto for using in pasta dishes."
