Willy Street Co-op Recipes

Grilled Eggplant and Olive Pizza

This hearty, delicious pizza, loaded with smoky grilled eggplant and provolone, can serve as a stepping stone for you into the exciting world of grilling pizzas!

Grilled Skirt Steak with Greek Salsa

Skirt steak is a great steak for grilling - it tastes great and is less expensive. Since it's a lean cut, be sure not to overcook it -- nothing past medium. Look for a thicker piece.

Grilled Plantains

Once your grill is fired up, these are dead simple to make, and you can use plaintains of varying ripeness with good results. The riper, yellow and black plantains will be sweeter and more creamy, and green ones will yield a milder taste with a starchy, dry texture.

Velvety Broccoli and Feta Pasta

This pasta is so creamy and rich, you'd think it was loaded with half-and-half. It's a quick, nourishing dinner, with a full pound of broccoli and some garlic and herbs.

Coconut-Avocado Tartines

You may be doubtful about combining avocados with coconut oil -- after all, avocados are so creamy and rich on their own. But the combination of these two healthy fats is incredible! You'll be tempted to add avocado and a slather of coconut oil to every sandwich you make. These tartines make a perfect hearty breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Strawberry Shrub

A shrub is an old-fashioned vinegar syrup that dates from Colonial times, and is added to sparkling or still water for a refreshing drink. Ideally it is both tart and sweet, perfect for quenching your thirst and whetting your appetite. 

Emerald Sesame Kale

This richly-hued, intensely flavorful kale is a customer favorite at the WIlly Street Co-op's Deli.

Springtime Locavore Salad

This salad is spring in a bowl! On its own, it's a perfect dinner for one, and would also serve two to three as a side.

Chili Relleno Casserole

This is a popular dish from the Willy Street Co-op, and now you can make it at home. It's a quick-to-assemble casserole that bakes up into a meltingly good dinner.

Dirt Cake

Yum yum! Of course this kid-friendly dessert is not made from dirt, but it sure looks like it, complete with candy worms on top!

Deepak's Vegan Korma

This creamy, coconut-infused dish is a Willy Street Co-op Deli favorite, and makes a filling and satisfying meal when served over rice.

Balls of Energy

It's so easy to make a big batch of these yummy and nutritious bites!

Parsley Pepita Pesto

This tasty pesto is made from flat-leaf parsley, which gives it a fresh and vibrant flavor. Pumpkin seeds, or pepitas, are toasted until warm and nutty, and make this pesto safe for those with tree nut allergies.

Fresh Ginger Muffins

These pale yellow muffins have a moist and delicate crumb, and are deliciously gingery. 

Crisp Couscous and Saffron Cakes

This little cakes are the perfect balance of crisp and soft, with sweet and salty pockets of feta and currants, and the subtle flavors of mint and saffron. And they're so easy to make! 

Coconut Kumquat Tea Cake

Minced kumquats, orange zest, and lemon zest add intense flavor to this moist, aromatic cake. Drizzled with a simple citrus icing and topped with toasted coconut and sliced kumquats, this is a very elegant but easy dessert.

Stout Stew

Serve over hot buttered noodles, polenta, or mashed potatoes. Can be prepared vegan and/or gluten-free.

Crostini with Ricotta and Pea Shoots

These easy to assemble crostini are topped with ricotta that's packed with early springtime flavors. If ramps aren't available yet, just use spring onions.

Spanish Tortilla

This simple egg dish is great as an appetizer, a snack, or a light meal, and takes a lot of its flavor from olive oil. If you're apprehensive about flipping it during the cooking process, you can leave it in the skillet and finish cooking it in a 375˚F oven until the eggs are set but not overcooked.
