Willy Street Co-op Recipes

Broccoli and Feta Pasta Sauce

This bright green sauce is creamy and tangy, and stirred into pasta is a delicious alternative to tomato sauce or pesto.

Local Yokel Hashbrowns

Spicy and delicious side to a local omlette and if you have leftovers it reheats nicely to be a compliment to your sandwich for lunch.

Potato Soup

Potato soup is a childhood favorite of mine, and this is the first time I've put tangible measurements to this recipe, so above all else, make this in a way that tastes good to you. 

Cream of Mushroom and Mead Soup

This can be made ahead and reheated. I love that this recipe can be adapted for most any time of year, for just about any kind of mushrooms, herbs or roots available.

Green Tomato Honey Pie

A good friend of mine gave me a green tomato pie recipe a few years ago to deal with a season of tomato blight. I've adapted this surprising and tasty dessert to make it totally local.

Shrub-Marinated Beet Salad

I made this up during the spring beet season, and used shrub because I was hunting for vinegar in my cupboard, but didn't have any. It was a happy surprise!

Carrot Pesto Sammies

If you're like me, carrot sticks get borring pretty fast. Adding hummus and other dips only go so far. I love putting a twist to classic recipes by substituting in other ingredients. Give your tastebuds a new adventure! You won't be disapointed!

Toad in a Hole on Mushrooms

Toad in a hole, also known as eggs in a basket, is a pretty simple recipe. The addition of mushrooms in the recipe adds a heartiness to the begining of the day, and you could even use a blend of local veggies, in addition to mushrooms. 

Egg Sandwiches

This is a super quick and easy breakfast on the go, and as a bonus, you get to include fresh and seasonal veggies in your early morning fare.

Garden Ratatouille

When the garden comes in this is the recipe to have on hand. It goes together quickly, and you can easily adjust the vegetables to make more if you have a bumper crop of tomatoes or peppers.

Betty's Quiche

This is one of my favorite brunch recipes. It is easy to make, and while it bakes you can cut up a nice local fruit salad or get a load of laundry done. This recipe is dear to my heart as my mother-in-law used to make it. Now my husband continues the tradition of making this for a brunch potluck, or for the two of us leaving us with plenty of leftovers.

Moroccan Grilled Eggplant

I enjoy this recipe because it can be changed so many ways by adding different herbs and spices and also because it is just as delicious without adding meat.

Peach Cobbler Muffins

Be sure to use ripe peaches for these muffins, they'll turn out moist and infused with peach flavor.

Chicken with 40 Garlic Cloves

Thank goodness, you don’t actually need to peel the 40 cloves of garlic here. This easy chicken dish is moist and infused with flavor.

Heirloon Tomato Cornbread

This cornbread, topped with sliced heirloom tomatoes and sharp cheddar cheese, is decidedly out of the ordinary.

Fattoush Salad

This classic Lebanese salad packed with toasted pita, summer vegetables, and loads of herbs tends to be a hit with everyone, and is filling enough to serve as a meal.
