Willy Street Co-op Recipes

Vegetable Cottage Pie

Cottage pie is a traditional Irish dish made with lamb and potatoes, much like shepherd’s pie. This vegetarian version is made with plenty of vegetables and lentils, simmered with fresh rosemary. It’s such a perfect dinner for a cold winter’s evening, don’t wait until St. Patrick’s Day to enjoy it.

Baked Mozzarella Sticks

Classic appetizer, minus all the oil. These are great to have in the freezer - you can just bake them from frozen for a quick, cheesy treat.

Collard Greens and Kale Pesto

Fresher and brighter than collards that are simmered for hours, this is a pesto that you’ll want to put on everything. Try on pasta, of course, but also stirred into minestrone, spread on toast, or as a topping for burgers.

Grapefruit Rosemary Olive Oil Cake

Fresh rosemary is an unexpected ingredient in desserts, and it adds a warm, complex note in this simple and straightforward grapefruit cake. Use the nicest olive oil you can.

Scallop Tacos with Spicy Grapefruit Salsa

Enjoy the classic combination of citrus and seafood in these fast, easy tacos. Be sure to start cooking the scallops quickly after tossing with grapefruit, as the citrus juice will turn them mushy if they sit for a while.

Black-eyed Peas with Collard Greens

For good luck all year long, here’s what to eat on New Year’s Day. With bay leaf and dill, and no ham hock, this vegetarian version is Greek-inspired, not Southern.

Grapefruit Campari Sorbet

Rio Star grapefruits are at their peak now, so this is the best time to tuck into this liqueur-infused frosty treat. The Campari helps the sorbet stay scoopable, but if you want to substitute it with orange juice (or grapefruit juice), or omit it entirely, that is fine.

Mustard-Roasted Broccoli Pȃté with Leeks and Lemon

Here’s an unusual pȃté that would be an excellent addition to a vegetarian riff on a charcuterie platter. Add some good bread, a bowlful of olives, some pickled vegetables, a couple of nice cheeses and you would have quite the spread. It’s also really good on a piece of toast when you want a quick snack.

Ginger Citrus Poppy Seed Muffins

These poppy seed muffins are far from basic, with lots of lemon juice and zest, freshly grated ginger, and an easy glaze with Satsuma juice.

Crispy Potato Roast

Similar to Hasselback potatoes, this is a knock-out side dish made up of very thinly sliced potatoes nestled in a baking dish, seasoned simply with salt and pepper and fresh thyme. 

Colombian Ajiaco (Chicken and Potato Soup)

This recipe for ajiaco is by no means authentic, but it is a good approximation of the traditional Colombian chicken and potato stew, warming and filling, a comforting soup for chilly winter days. Authentic ajiaco calls for an herb called guascas, but we’ve substituted it with oregano in this recipe. If you’re able to find guascas though, by all means use it here.

Honey Bee Bars

Honey Bee Bars are a staple at the Willy Street Co-op, and a longtime customer favorite. Now you can make them at home -- this recipe couldn't be easier. 

Glazed Ham

This aromatic glazed ham is a stand-out centerpiece on a festive holiday table. An array of spices, as well as light and dark brown sugar, molasses, and apple cider impart loads of flavor and give the ham a dark brown, crispy crust.

Apple-Potato Latkes

Golden, crunchy, and salty-sweet, these latkes can be served with applesauce or sour cream, or both, or nothing at all (they’re that good!). You might even try smoked salmon or caviar. Squeezing as much moisture as possible out of the apple-potato-onion mixture is the key to crispy pancakes.

Smashed Cheddar and Onion Burgers

A blend of bonito flakes, dried kombu, and shiitake mushrooms contribute to an even meatier-tasting burger. Take care not to overwork the ground meat.

Onion and Mushroom Tart

This savory tart could be served as dinner  with the addition of a green salad, or as an elegant appetizer for a larger group. Try an assortment of fresh mushrooms, like button and oyster and porcini, or just use one variety.
