THE RECIPES
Heirloom Tomato Galette

Want the secret to flaky pie crust? Freeze your butter then grate it on a box grater. Also, use vodka instead of water to bind the dough together. Vodka doesn't promote gluten formation the same way water does so it will keep the pastry light and flaky. 
 

Feedfeed Tip Heirlooms are pretty much perfect right now, which means very juicy!  To keep your galette from getting soggy, add a little salt to the sliced tomatoes and let them sit in a colander for at least 30 minutes before adding them to the galette.
Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice by @tastyyummies

You can add any protein you'd like to this speedy dinner, but we love how quickly it comes together with just scrambled and fried eggs!

Feedfeed Tip Toss the pasta with the fig dressing while it's still warm so it has a chance to absorb all of the flavor. 
Garlicky Lentils and Tomatoes with a Soft Boiled Egg and Tahini-Honey Sauce by @what_she_ate

Never made lentils? You can buy them precooked but it will be more cost effective to buy them in bulk.  All you need to do is bring a pot of water to a boil, add the lentils, reduce to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes.  Once tender, strain, season and serve! Make sure you add salt after they have cooked as adding it too early can prohibit lentils from cooking properly.
