Willy Street Co-op Recipes

Beer-Braised Short Ribs with Sweet and Sour Onions

This comforting meal makes enough to feed a crowd, and its sweet-sour combination of caramelized onion, beer, and vinegar gives it distinctive character. Note that the short ribs will need to sit, seasoned, for eight hours in the refrigerator, but almost all of the preparation time is hands-off. Excellent served over buttered noodles or mashed potatoes.

Cranberry Orange Pancakes

These lightly sweet, golden, and fluffy pancakes are topped with a simple citrus-y cranberry sauce.

Cranberry Molasses Pudding with Vanilla Hard Sauce

This English pudding is dark, tender, and quite tart. Served with liberal amounts of sweet, buttery, vanilla “hard sauce” (actually a misnomer, since the sauce is liquid and warm), this dessert could easily become a holiday tradition.

Cranberry, Ginger, and Satsuma Clafouti

This recipe is surprisingly easy, using only a mixing bowl, whisk and baking dish, and results in a stunning dessert that’s a cross between a custard and a Dutch baby.

Plato's Polenta Pie

Here's a flavorful Mediterranean-inspired dish from the Willy Street Co-op's deli. 

Gluten-free Pumpkin Bar

Here's a recipe for one of the Co-op's most popular baked goods, so you can make it at home!

Curried Beef

Another favorite from the Willy Street Co-op's deli. 

Smoky Apple Veggie Burger

Sometimes a homemade veggie burger is the way to go. The extra care that goes into these will make having a burger feel more special than if you’re pulling it out of a box. These ones freeze really well - just freeze after you’ve baked them.

Easy Slow Cooker Apple Butter

With no sweetener, and just some spices to taste, this apple butter is pure, apple-y goodness. It’s delicious as is, but you can use this as a starting off point if you’d like to get inventive with more ingredients.

Leek and Spinach Frittata

This hearty egg dish is lovely when allowed to cool a bit before serving, with a dollop of thick Greek yogurt and some torn basil on top. The recipe calls for 10 egg whites plus a couple of yolks, but you can use 8 whole eggs instead with good results. Serve for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Pumpkin Spice Cake with Coconut-Vanilla Icing and Roasted Hazelnuts

This delicious, towering layer cake is actually refined sugar- and dairy-free, and is made with whole grains. If super sweet desserts aren’t your thing, this is the kind of cake to make you wish you had a fall birthday (unless you're lucky enough to have one). (Don't be totally put off by the preparation time -- this includes four hours while the coconut milk is chilling, plus the the time for the cake to cool before frosting!)

Pumpkin Grilled Cheese

These grilled cheese sandwiches are truly decadent, and well worth the time it takes to roast the pumpkin.

Pumpkin Bread

This sweet bread bakes up into a deep brown the color of gingerbread, with a tender crumb, and a crust with a pleasant crunch. If you like nuts, chopped walnuts or pecans would make a nice addition.

Mashed Potato Puffs

These cheesy, crispy, potato puffs are reason enough to make sure you have plenty of leftover mashed potatoes.

Turkey Hash

Loaded with leftover turkey and other Thanksgiving ingredients that you might still have on hand, this hearty hash would make an excellent day-after-Thanksgiving breakfast (or lunch, or dinner)!

Cranberry Salsa

Lime and jalapeno liven up this fresh take on cranberry sauce.

Oatmeal Pear Muffins

These muffins are light, fluffy and packed with pears, and are gluten- and refined-sugar-free and vegan!
