Willy Street Co-op Recipes

Homemade Spicy Ketchup

If you are not a ketchup person now, this spicy and sweet spread is likely to convert you! A little jar would also make a great gift in the summer.

 

Spiced Pluot Crostata

Pluots, a cross between plums and apricots, have an expansive flavor that only gets better when baked with warm spices. This crust is deceptively simple to make, and doesn't require any special skills.

Bruleéd Pluots

Stone fruits are transformed when cooked. The fruit sugars are intensified, and they hardly need any sugar to make an indulgent, but still fairly healthful dessert. They're delicious on their own, but try with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a spoonful of creme fraîche on top.

Tomatillo-Poblano Guacamole

This delicious, smoky guacamole is a bit lighter than typical guacamole - some of the avocado is replaced by tomatillos, which add sweetness and tang.

Green, Red, and Blue

You can find loose leaf teas in the Health and Wellness aisle at Willy Street Co-op, and you can buy as much or as little as you'd like!

Matchy Mint Tea

You can find loose leaf teas in the Health and Wellness aisle at Willy Street Co-op, and you can buy as much or as little as you'd like!

Jasmine Sunrise Tea

You can find loose leaf teas in the Health and Wellness aisle at Willy Street Co-op, and you can buy as much or as little as you'd like!

Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho

This light, cold soup makes a great meal on a hot summer night, and turning on the stove isn't even a requirement!

Stewed Plums

These stewed plums are lovely to eat at any time of day. Have them with hot cereal or spoon them on toast with some cream cheese or butter.

Mexican-Style Peach Salad

This is a fun summery fruit salad to play around with. Make it as written, or substitute the peaches for mangoes or another stone fruit. 

Stone Fruit Chutney

Serve this chutney with roasted meats or alongside a charcuterie or cheese platter. 

Caramelized Asian-spiced Plums and Nectarines

Star anise, cinnamon, and allspice lend this easy dish an exotic flavor. Great on it's own, but would of course go great with some vanilla ice cream or a dollop of creme fraiche. You can also use this like a chutney, serving it alongside roasted meat.

Minty Stone Fruit Salad

This would be delicious with any combination of summery stone fruit - experiment! Use what looks good, and you'll have a fantastic salad.

Butter-Poached Stone Fruit

Use your favorite stone fruit or a combination for this delicious dish. It's yummy on it's own, but would also be nice paired with ice cream or yogurt, or stirred into oatmeal.

Stone Fruit Bars

This is a versatile dessert: use your favorite combination of stone fruit, like peaches and cherries, or apricots and nectarines. 

Cherry Ricotta Tart

If ricotta isn't your favorite, use lightly sweetened mascarpone instead, or even whipped cream!

Red Fruit Salad

This fruit salad is great immediately after assembling, but if you have a day to let the flavors develop in the refrigerator, it's even better!

Peach and Cornmeal Upside-down Cake

Dried lavender is optional but highly recommended here - it creates a perfect trio with the summery, ripe peaches, and the crunchy, golden cornmeal. You can find dried lavender in the Health and Wellness aisle with the bulk teas.

Summer Peach Salsa

This peach salsa is nice with tacos and tortill chips, but try it alongside anything grilled, too!

Peach Crisp

This delicious crumble-topped dessert lets the peaches shine.

Corn and Tomato Stuffed Avocados

If you don't want to heat up your kitchen with the oven, you can skip broiling these stuffed avocados - they're just as delicious at room temperature.

Big Sur Bakery Hide Bread

This recipe will result in something similar to an English muffin - only dense, and packed with seeds and grains. They must be toasted to be fully enjoyed.

Grilled Tomato and Basil Pizza

Using the Co-op's pizza dough makes this so easy! The following recipe is quite minimal, so use this as a starting point - try a more traditional one with tomato sauce, or pesto, and add meat if you like, or more vegetables. Once you've grilled pizza, you won't want to turn the oven on for the rest of the summer.
