Willy Street Co-op Recipes

Moroccan Carrot and Chickpea Salad

This salad is already quite hearty, with dried fruit, toasted nuts, and lots of fragrant fresh mint, but could be made even more substantial with the addition of bulgur or couscous.

Celery Root and Mushroom Lasagna

Yes, lasagna does take a bit of effort, but this luxurious white lasagna made with an earthy, rich ragu, is worth every minute. This can be assembled ahead of time and refrigerated - just bring to room temperature before baking. For a vegetarian version, omit the prosciutto and use faux-chicken broth, mushroom broth, or vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.

Savoy Cabbage Chips

This is an interesting variation on the (almost!) ubiquitous kale chip that has been popping up everywhere. Savoy cabbage, being the showiest of all cabbage with its crinkly leaves, makes a very elegant snack.

Roasted Moroccan Potatoes

This recipe calls for harissa, a thick North African chili sauce. If it's new to your pantry, you'll find that it's a versatile ingredient that's wonderful in fish or meat stews, couscous dishes, or as a rub for meats.

Potato Rosemary Strudel

This is one of those effortlessly delicious and good-looking dishes that's great to have in your repertoire. It also re-heats really well, so bake it a day in advance if you'd like, then put in the oven to heat through just before serving.

Simple Spinach Stracciatella Soup

Adding frozen spinach to this classic Italian soup gives it extra heartiness. The toasted baguette is great for dipping into the soup.

Blueberry Maple Quinoa

If you love warm breakfasts but have tired of oatmeal, this quinoa will delight you! Double the batch of quinoa if you'd like, and it will be quick to heat up on those busy mornings.

Lower Fat Lefse

These lefse are not only easy to make, they are also lower in fat than typical lefse!

Chocolate Beet Cake

Crushed beets are an inexpensive way to make a nearly molten, incredibly moist cake and highlight deep chocolate flavor.

Slow Cooker Spicy Red Beans

Who doesn't love slow cooker recipes?

Adjust the level of spices in this dish with more or less cayenne. Serve with greens and cornbread.

Mushroom Tostadas

Mushrooms' texture and flavor hold up well to the warm spices of Mexican-inspired dishes.  

Muhammara Roasted Red Pepper Spread

Muhammara is a delicious spread made from toasted walnuts are roasted red peppers. It's popular throughout Syria, Lebanon, and Turkey. This recipe calls for lemon juice, but many versions call for pomegranate molasses instead. If you have some on hand, you may want to try it instead of lemon juice.

Root Ribbons with Sage

Burdok, sweet potatoes, turnips, or other root vegetables would be good substitutes for the ones listed below. Avoid beets though, as they would turn your dish scarlet.

Blood Orange Salsa

This is a unique take on salsa, incorporating vibrant blood oranges and creamy avocado.

Corn Pudding

This is a delicate dish, somewhat like a Mexican version of Southern spoon bread. It's delicious with ham or grilled meats.
