Apple Crumble

Apples are cooked once in a skillet before being topped with crumble and baked. The long cooking time turns the apples caramel-scented, sweet, and sticky.

Baba Ghanoush

Baba ghanoush is a Levantine eggplant dish that's perfect slathered on a slice of baguette, making it excellent picnic food. It's richly flavored with tahini, lemon, and lots of garlic.

Grilled Eggplant with Basil Vinaigrette

Eggplant doesn't need a lot of preparation to taste great. Specialty varieties like Lilac Bride often lack the astringent flavor and big seeds that Italian Globe eggplant sometimes has.

Mushroom and Pepper Goulash

With loads of summer vegetables, hearty mushrooms, and plenty of sweet Hungarian paprika, this vegetarian goulash is full of texture and flavor. Leftovers keep wonderfully for lunch boxes, as well.

Melon with Chile-Lime Syrup

Honeydew or cantaloupe would both be great in this dessert, sweet and cool with a bit of unexpected heat.

Almond-Crisped Peaches

Melon and paper-thin prosciutto are a perfect pairing, salty and sweet. This well-rounded salad features both, along with peppery arugula and champagne vinaigrette.

Golden Tomato Soup with Fennel

Apricot Macaroon Tart

This gluten-free tart features a straightforward, press-in-the-pan crust with buckwheat flour, giving it a toasted, nutty flavor.

Salmon with Apricot Salsa

This is a fresh, healthy, and vibrant dish. If you'd prefer to fire up the grill instead of searing the salmon, that would be delicious too!

Green Garlic and Creamy Avocado Pesto Gnocchi

Green garlic is just young garlic, so the taste is milder and, depending on how young it is, usually isn’t encased in papery skin that needs to be peeled. Simply cut off the roots, and slice like an onion. You can eat the stalks as well, like scallions.

Strawberry Sunrise Smoothie

This delicious smoothie is an excellent way to start the day. This recipe also makes incredible popsicles! Double or triple the recipe, pour into molds, and freeze.

A marinade of yogurt, orange, cumin, and saffron flavor these juicy chicken kebabs. Served with lime wedges and lavash or pita, it's a special but deceptively easy meal.

Miso Pasta Salad

Miso dressing is an unexpected but enjoyable choice for pasta salad, giving it a nice umami punch!

Tuscan Grilled Zucchini and Yellow Crookneck Squash

Summer squash soaks up the garlic, herbs, and lemon in this marinade like a sponge, and bursts with flavor after a quick turn on the grill. Use the extra marinade (you'll have some leftover) to drizzle over a grain salad, or to grill more vegetables.

Turkish Zucchini Pancakes with Garlic Yogurt

Turkish people know how to cook vegetables like no one else, and these incredible zucchini fritters are no exception. Served with an easy salad of sliced tomatoes drizzled in olive oil, this is a perfect summer meal.

Carnitas with Tomatillo Salsa

Carnitas basically cooks itself. After four hours in the oven with garlic and chilies, it's packed with flavor and makes a great meal served with warm corn tortillas and all the fixings.

Black Sesame Sugar Snap Peas

Quickly steamed sugar snap peas are tossed in sesame oil and sprinkled with black sesame seeds for a bright and crunchy side dish.

Zucchini and Ricotta Galette

Zucchini and ricotta are nestled in a deliciously flaky and soft free-form crust in this straightforward galette. Good served hot out of the oven or at room temperature.

Summer Cucumber Soup

This cool, summer soup was insired by Bulgarian tarator, a soup made with yogurt, cucumbers, dill, garlic, and walnuts. This version skips the yogurt in favor of almond milk for a packed-with-flavor, refreshing dish.

Nothing Muffins

This is the closely guarded, secret recipe for the Willy Street Co-op's famous Nothing Muffins!

Nutty Maple Granola

Grilled Skirt Steak with Greek Salsa

Skirt steak is a great steak for grilling - it tastes great and is less expensive. Since it's a lean cut, be sure not to overcook it -- nothing past medium. Look for a thicker piece.
