Willy Street Co-op Recipes

Apple Pie

This apple pie has a splash of apple cider vinegar, which brings out the lovely sweet-tart flavor of the apples.

Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes

For those of us who don't eat grains, yummy pancakes are potentially a thing of the past, but no longer! Try adding blueberries or chocolate chips to the batter for an even more decadent treat.

No-Fail Pie Crust

This recipe calls for a food processor, but if you don't have one, you can mix this by hand. Try a pastry cutter or two forks. It will take longer, but it'll work! I've adapted this recipe to be vegan by substituting Earth Balance Buttery Sticks for the butter and it turns out perfect. Keep your ingredients COLD for best results -- I normally keep mine in the freezer. This recipe can be doubled with no issues. Keep extra dough wrapped in plastic in the freezer.

Green Dream Smoothie

Our Green Dream smoothie got its 15 minutes of fame in the August 2012 issue of BRAVA magazine.

Kale and Persimmon Salad

Crisp, apple-like Fuyu persimmons and kale are a surprising pair that make a delicious and unusual cold-weather salad.

Six-Onion Pizza

If you don't have the time (it does take up to four hours) to make your own pizza dough as outlined in this recipe, just use Willy Street Co-op's freshly made pizza dough, available in the deli!

Leek, Lemon, and Feta Quiche

The small amount of ouzo in this quiche is optional, but adds a sweet anise flavor that balances the sharp saltiness of the feta. If you're cooking for one, it's simple to adapt this recipe to make four individual-sized quiches instead of one large one, just freeze the extras for later.

Roasted Tomato Sauce with Garlic

This tomato sauce is mostly hands-off and slowly roasts in the oven, leaving you free to do important things while your kitchen fills with a wonderful aroma. Eat Local Challenge Participants: all the ingredients in this recipe (except salt) are available locally during the ELC!

The Bomb Tomato Concentrate

Don't call this tomato paste! You'll want a spoonful of this in any dish that suffers from a lack depth or richness or is just sadly bland. This is tomatoe-y, yes, but also intense, sweet, and tart, all at once. 

Baba Ganoush

When prepared this way, eggplant takes on an incredible smoky flavor. You can do this in the oven, as described in the recipe, on a grill, or even over the open flame of your stovetop. You just want the eggplant to turn sunken and blackened.

Summer Marinade

This light Mediterranean-style marinade is perfect for grilling chicken kabobs (see note).

Summer Squash Gratin

Slicing the potatoes as thin as possible is essential to the success of this dish. They will turn luscious and creamy. If sliced too thick they'll take longer to cook than the squash.

Greek Country Salad

This is an authentically Greek salad, quite different from the common version made in the States with feta and olives.

Dill and Cheddar Beer Bread

This bread is quite simple to make, and is really amazing just out of the oven, topped with butter. Try experimenting with different lagers and ales.
