Willy Street Co-op Recipes

Almond Tahini Sauce

This sauce is so addictive. Try tossed with rice or udon noodles with vegetables for a filling meal.

Lemon Tahini Sauce

Thin down this sauce down to use as a tangy salad dressing, or leave it thick to spread on sandwiches, or as a dip for vegetables.


Sesame Tahini Dressing

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

Crispy Seed Crackers

Made with whole grain oats and seeds, these crackers are high in protein and fiber, and are really easy to make! If you use gluten-free oats, the crackers are gluten-free, too!

Sausage and Feta Hand Pies

These beautiful hand-held savory pies look impressive, but they are incredibley easy to make. Perfect as a light lunch with a side salad, as an accompaniment to a larger meal, or make them smaller and serve them as appetizers at your holiday gatherings!

Pumpkin Pie in a Mug

This dessert is a cross between a pie and a cake, and is just the thing when you have a hankering for a slice of pumpkin pie.

The Bright and Bitter

A bracing blend of juices, bitters, and sparklng water combine to make a delicious drink with a serious punch of vitamin C. This would be great to serve at brunch.

The Skipping Rabbit

This mocktail made with warming maple syrup, ginger, and cinnamon, is just the thing for a cozy winter's evening.

Cardamom Simple Syrup

This simple syrup is easy to make, and adds incredible flavor to cocktails or mocktails.

Spiced Maple Glazed Pecans

Sweet, salty, and a little spicy, these easy roasted nuts would make a great gift (if you can part with them!).

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.
