Shepherd's Pie

This was a collaboration- we used lamb cooked with onions, yellow beets, herbs, and red wine, and we topped it with potatoes mashed with celeriac and a healthy sprinkling of aged cheddar cheese. This picture is terrible, but I can promise that the result was delicious!

Inspired by the master, Yotam Ottolenghi- I cooked the squash with caraway and it was delicious!

Hummus with Preserved Lemon

Hummus: chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, salt. I think it's best when you use dried chickpeas, but canned work if you're in a hurry.

Sweet Potato and Lentil Tacos with Goat Cheese and Arugula

This was a quick and easy meal that was super satisfying: sweet potatoes, salty lentils, creamy goat cheese, and fresh greens dressed in lemon juice to add some texture and acidity. I used white sweet potatoes, which is why you can't really see them in this picture.
