Willy Street Co-op Recipes

Greek Lamb with Orzo

Fragrant, saucy lamb is ladled over orzo with loads of chopped parsley, then topped with generous amounts of feta and kalamata olives in this hearty, Greek (-inspired) meal. This crowd-worthy dish is easy enough to make (just two dirty pots!), but doesn’t taste that way.

Smoky Roasted Cherry Jam

This jam could be served with roasted chicken or pork tenderloin, or spread on a grilled cheese sandwich.

Simple Strawberry Compote

This two ingredient compote couldn’t be easier! Serve it on waffles, fresh toast, pancakes, oatmeal, or ice cream. When it’s cherry season, try using pitted cherries in place of up to half of the strawberries. And when fresh strawberries are no longer available, frozen would be a great substitute.

Strawberry Soba Noodle Salad

When the weather turns warm, cold noodle salads always hit the spot. The unusual addition of strawberries here adds a welcome sweet-tart contrast to the salty miso dressing. Serve alongside anything grilled.

Vibrant Spring Socca with Basil-Arugula Pesto

Socca is similar to a crepe, and is made with chickpea flour, which imparts a mild, nutty flavor. This recipe makes one giant socca, but it’s easy to make small ones instead if you’d prefer.

Coconut Basmati Rice

The coconut milk gives this rice dish a rich flavor and pairs well with curried dishes. 

Pickled Rhubarb

Spicy, sweet, and tart, this is a pickle-lover’s pickle. Add to salads or a cheese plate.

Roasted Rhubarb

Here’s a delicious way to serve rhubarb if you’re not interested in pie. Served warm, it’s incredible served with crème fraîche, whipped cream, or ice cream.

Arugula and Asparagus Ribbon Salad

During asparagus’s short season, serving it raw is a great way to enjoy it. Shaving the spears into thin ribbons and briefly marinating them in a quick vinaigrette turns the asparagus soft and almost creamy.

Sliced Steak with Arugula

This iconic Roman dish (Stracceti di Manzo in Italian) is perfect for a sophisticated, but simple, dinner in a hurry.

Mushroom, Bacon, and Arugula Skillet

This quick skillet isn't just for breakfast - it's an easy dish to prepare any time. Savory mushrooms, bacon, and eggs pair wonderfully with fresh green arugula.

Vidalia Onion Soup with Wild Rice and Blue Cheese

Vidalia onions will make this a one of a kind soup, but if they’re not available, try Walla Walla or another variety of sweet onion. If you have homemade stock on hand, this would be an ideal time to use it.

Vietnamese Caramelized Pork

Served with steamed white rice, this is a restaurant-quality meal that's surprisingly straightforward to prepare.
