Willy Street Co-op Recipes

Swedish Rye Cookies

These not-too-sweet, shortbread-style cookies are a great basic cookie to have in your back pocket. Barley or oat flour instead of the rye flour could be interesting here, or if you want something more neutral, regular all-purpose would work too!

Sweet Potato-Shallot Alfredo


Gluten-free and vegan, this pasta dish is creamy comfort food that everyone can enjoy. Toss in more cooked vegetables before serving if you’d like – steamed kale or roasted broccoli would be delicious.

Potato Leek Au Gratin

Scented with leek and garlic and enriched with cream and Gruyère, this gratin is baked in a low oven, which leaves a crispy crust and buttery potatoes. A mandoline will make quick work of the potatoes!

Fennel, Celery, and Pomegranate Salad

This palate-cleansing salad balances out rich winter meals. The recipe calls for the vegetables to be thinly sliced, and a mandoline would come in handy here.

This slighty sweet, salty dressing takes a bowl of simple steamed vegetables and warm grains to another level.
