Willy Street Co-op Recipes

Pomegranate Americano

The classic combination of vermouth and Campari is replicated here in mocktail form. Pomegranate juice lends the acidity, astringency, and sweetness of vermouth, and bitters gives a strong herbal note, like Campari.

Pomme Pomme

Cumin, paprika, and turmeric are unusual components in this delicious mocktail.

Hot Fizz

Tart apple juice is paired with hot chile in this fizz, to add heat and a zippy, sweet pepper taste.

Virgin Madras

A non-alchoholic version of a Madras is a festive choice for holiday parties.

Shirley Temple

This is a longtime favorite of children and adults alike.

Maple Roasted Root Vegetables

Winter root vegetables turn sweet and packed with flavor when roasted, and when lightly coated in maple syrup, they turn into a stand-out side dish.

Butternut Beet Hash

This flavorful and hearty side dish is a perennial favorite at the Willy Street Co-op, and is perfect for the Thanksgiving table!

Beet, Carrot, and Apple Salad

Winter vegetables can often seem heavy, but this root vegetable and apple salad is crisp and refreshing, a great antidote to filling holiday foods.

Simple Gluten-Free Pie Dough

This lightly sweet, shortbread-style crust truly is easy - you don't even have to roll it out, just press it in the pan.

Sweet Potato and Sausage Soup

Hearty enough to be a one pot meal, this soup is richly flavored, easy to make, and adaptable – use kielbasa instead of the andouille, or substitute the sausage entirely with a couple of cans of drained white beans.

Classic Roasted Chestnuts

Even if you didn’t grow up eating roasted chestnuts, there’s something very nostalgic about them that makes them a perfect treat during the holidays.

Apple Chestnut Stuffing

This stuffing is delicious: made with rich challah bread and loaded with sweet chestnuts, tart apples, and fresh herbs.

Perfect Mashed Potatoes

The key to light, fluffy mashed potatoes is a potato ricer: it gently turns the potatoes into tiny flakes, leaving you with perfect mashed potatoes. 

Winter Squash, Onion, and Red Wine Pandade

This is arguably the only way to eat winter squash. In the oven, the bread becomes surprisingly light, fluffy, and silky, the squash turns intensely flavorful, and the cheese melts into a browned and bubbly cap.

Brussels Sprout and Chorizo Beer Hash

Great in the morning for a special and substantial breakfast (but good for dinner, too) this meal will convert event the most serious Brussels sprout hater. This hash is perfect to make during the holidays, when you can double it for a home full of houseguests.

Apple Crumble

Apples are cooked once in a skillet before being topped with crumble and baked. The long cooking time turns the apples caramel-scented, sweet, and sticky.

Baba Ghanoush

Baba ghanoush is a Levantine eggplant dish that's perfect slathered on a slice of baguette, making it excellent picnic food. It's richly flavored with tahini, lemon, and lots of garlic.

Grilled Eggplant with Basil Vinaigrette

Eggplant doesn't need a lot of preparation to taste great. Specialty varieties like Lilac Bride often lack the astringent flavor and big seeds that Italian Globe eggplant sometimes has.
