Well, I know it's not really all that summery, but sometimes we have foggy nights in Santa Cruz, and I am in the mood for something warm and hearty. So, I made the Upside-down Lentil Shepherd's Pie from Appetite for Reduction. It's basically a rich lentil-y stew with a big side of "Caulipots" on the side (half mashed potatoes, half mashed cauliflower). Sooo good. I'd never made this before, but we both really loved it, so I'll definitely make it again.
I love meals like this - a one-bowl experience that has it all: veggies, lentils, starches, and loads of flavor! Plus, it made great leftovers the next day. :)
