Creamy Vegan Shepherd's Pie
Creamy Vegan Shepherd's Pie

 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!

Gena Hamshaw's Broccoli Tahini Pesto Pasta
Gena Hamshaw's Broccoli Tahini Pesto Pasta

"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."
