Almond Cake with Strawberry Rhubarb Compote

Spring has arrived, and with it rhubarb and strawberries! This almond cake with a sweet marzipan base is complemented beautifully by a simple, tart compote. For Passover, simply substitute the flour with finely-ground matzo meal. 

Socca with Tomato and Onion

Made with chickpea flour, socca is a large, gluten-free and vegan pancake. This one is made with Indian spices and sauteed onion and tomato.

Thai Salad with Peanut Tempeh

Here is a tasty noodle salad that’s packed with vegetables and loads of protein. The longer you marinate the tempeh the better, so it makes sense to start that part the night before.

Colcannon

Colcannon is a traditional Irish dish made from mashed potatoes and kale or cabbage, with a million different variations. This take on it calls for Savoy cabbage, garlic, and leeks.

Grilled Salmon on a Cedar Plank

The method of cooking salmon on a cedar plank over an open flame goes way back. Soaking the plank first helps to ensure that the fish remains moist and tender, and it steams slowly, absorbing subtle smokiness from the wood itself, as well as any herbs or spices you use. This recipe is quite simple, calling for just some salt and pepper and optional dill and lemon.

Blood Orange Pound Cake

With a pronounced berry finish balanced by a bitter undercurrent, blood oranges are a wonderful ingredient in baked goods. This easy pound cake is topped with a pink-flecked glaze that helps to keep it moist.

Lemon and Blood Orange Roasted Chicken

This chicken is cooked at 500℉ for about an hour, and is packed with flavorful garlic and citrus. Potatoes and carrots are roasted in the same pan as the chicken, so if you throw together a simple green salad while it’s in the oven, you have a filling, mostly hands-off meal.

Two-Potato Gratin

With their rich, buttery flavor, Yukon Gold potatoes hold their own in this simple, unadorned gratin.

Mango and Avocado Salsa

This simple, fresh salsa is ready in about 10 minutes. Perfect accompaniment to tortilla chips, but also anything grilled.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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. 

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.

Vegan French Onion Soup with Homemade "Mozzarella"

French onion soup without beef broth? It can be done! To develop deep, rich umami taste, this recipe has you initially cook the onions on the stove, then transfer them for some time in the oven, and back on the stovetop to simmer with thyme, tamari, and balsamic vinegar. A lid of toasted baguette and homemade “mozzarella” take this to another level.

Cranberry Orange Pancakes

These lightly sweet, golden, and fluffy pancakes are topped with a simple citrus-y cranberry sauce.

Cranberry, Ginger, and Satsuma Clafouti

This recipe is surprisingly easy, using only a mixing bowl, whisk and baking dish, and results in a stunning dessert that’s a cross between a custard and a Dutch baby.

Curried Beef

Another favorite from the Willy Street Co-op's deli. 

Smoky Apple Veggie Burger

Sometimes a homemade veggie burger is the way to go. The extra care that goes into these will make having a burger feel more special than if you’re pulling it out of a box. These ones freeze really well - just freeze after you’ve baked them.

Easy Slow Cooker Apple Butter

With no sweetener, and just some spices to taste, this apple butter is pure, apple-y goodness. It’s delicious as is, but you can use this as a starting off point if you’d like to get inventive with more ingredients.

Leek and Spinach Frittata

This hearty egg dish is lovely when allowed to cool a bit before serving, with a dollop of thick Greek yogurt and some torn basil on top. The recipe calls for 10 egg whites plus a couple of yolks, but you can use 8 whole eggs instead with good results. Serve for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Pumpkin Spice Cake with Coconut-Vanilla Icing and Roasted Hazelnuts

This delicious, towering layer cake is actually refined sugar- and dairy-free, and is made with whole grains. If super sweet desserts aren’t your thing, this is the kind of cake to make you wish you had a fall birthday (unless you're lucky enough to have one). (Don't be totally put off by the preparation time -- this includes four hours while the coconut milk is chilling, plus the the time for the cake to cool before frosting!)

Pumpkin Grilled Cheese

These grilled cheese sandwiches are truly decadent, and well worth the time it takes to roast the pumpkin.

Mashed Potato Puffs

These cheesy, crispy, potato puffs are reason enough to make sure you have plenty of leftover mashed potatoes.

Cranberry Salsa

Lime and jalapeno liven up this fresh take on cranberry sauce.

Oatmeal Pear Muffins

These muffins are light, fluffy and packed with pears, and are gluten- and refined-sugar-free and vegan!
