Barbecue Jackfruit Tacos

With its tangy sauce and meaty texture, barbecue jackfruit makes a great taco filling. These tacos are Asian inspired, with a soy and sesame-dressed slaw.

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.

Hearts of Palm and Blood Orange Salad

This salad goes so nicely with so many meals, you might find yourself eating it every couple of days when blood oranges are in season. The bright pink color of the dressing is a welcome sight in the middle of winter, and the combination of crunchy, slightly bitter romaine with crisp hearts of palm and juicy blood oranges is one you won’t forget.

Brown Rice Congee with Shiitake Mushrooms and Greens

Congee, or Asian-style rice porridge, has many variations. This version uses brown rice instead of the typical white, and contains lots of fresh shiitake mushrooms, warm garlic and ginger, and greens. Serve with optional toppings (see the note at the bottom for some ideas) at the table, and you’ll have a comforting meal that will please everyone.

Mango and Avocado Salsa

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

Vegetable Cottage Pie

Cottage pie is a traditional Irish dish made with lamb and potatoes, much like shepherd’s pie. This vegetarian version is made with plenty of vegetables and lentils, simmered with fresh rosemary. It’s such a perfect dinner for a cold winter’s evening, don’t wait until St. Patrick’s Day to enjoy it.

Scallop Tacos with Spicy Grapefruit Salsa

Enjoy the classic combination of citrus and seafood in these fast, easy tacos. Be sure to start cooking the scallops quickly after tossing with grapefruit, as the citrus juice will turn them mushy if they sit for a while.

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.

Grapefruit Campari Sorbet

Rio Star grapefruits are at their peak now, so this is the best time to tuck into this liqueur-infused frosty treat. The Campari helps the sorbet stay scoopable, but if you want to substitute it with orange juice (or grapefruit juice), or omit it entirely, that is fine.

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. 

Glazed Ham

This aromatic glazed ham is a stand-out centerpiece on a festive holiday table. An array of spices, as well as light and dark brown sugar, molasses, and apple cider impart loads of flavor and give the ham a dark brown, crispy crust.

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.

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.

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.

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!)

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!

Quinoa-Stuffed Peppers

This is such a fast meal to get on the table. Chop the vegetables while the quinoa is cooking, stuff the peppers, then put your feet up while everything’s in the oven.

Chimichurri Noodles with Shrimp, Sweet Corn, Seared Tomatoes

Light zucchini noodles are tossed with a sauce that’s similar to pesto - made with lemon, parsley, and garlic, it is a bright, flavorful sauce that’s good on everything. For a taste of summer in the dark days of winter, keep the extra sauce this recipe makes in the freezer.
