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.

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.

Grapefruit Rosemary Olive Oil Cake

Fresh rosemary is an unexpected ingredient in desserts, and it adds a warm, complex note in this simple and straightforward grapefruit cake. Use the nicest olive oil you can.

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.

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.

Ginger Citrus Poppy Seed Muffins

These poppy seed muffins are far from basic, with lots of lemon juice and zest, freshly grated ginger, and an easy glaze with Satsuma juice.

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. 

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.

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.

Onion and Mushroom Tart

This savory tart could be served as dinner  with the addition of a green salad, or as an elegant appetizer for a larger group. Try an assortment of fresh mushrooms, like button and oyster and porcini, or just use one variety.

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 Molasses Pudding with Vanilla Hard Sauce

This English pudding is dark, tender, and quite tart. Served with liberal amounts of sweet, buttery, vanilla “hard sauce” (actually a misnomer, since the sauce is liquid and warm), this dessert could easily become a holiday tradition.

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.

Plato's Polenta Pie

Here's a flavorful Mediterranean-inspired dish from the Willy Street Co-op's deli. 

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!

Hawaiian-style Garlic Shrimp

Yes, you read that right -- this calls for 50 cloves of garlic. You will be rewarded with shrimp cooked in an intensely aromatic sauce with loads of golden, crispy garlic bits.

Chicken Kebabs with Garlic Sauce

This is quite the meal: grilled chicken, vegetables and chunks of halloumi cheese, served with warm pita or naan and an amazing, creamy garlic sauce. Take note that the chicken should marinate overnigth, so plan accordingly.
