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.

Pork and Green Chile Stew

This stew, laden with roasted peppers and tomatillos, becomes even more flavorful after one or two days, so it’s great if you’re able to make it in advance.

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.

Plum Crumble

This crumble is made with not too much sugar, so the sweet-tart plums can take center stage. Serve for dessert on its own, or with some melty vanilla ice cream. It also doubles as a lovely breakfast.

Turkish-style Braised Green Beans

Braising in olive oil is the traditional way of cooking vegetables in Turkey. The long cooking time here intensifies the flavors and turns the green beans tender, and creates a delicious sauce that’s perfect for sopping up with fresh bread.

 

Tortilla Espanola with Summer Squash

This egg dish is excellent cold or at room temperature, so it’s a nice make-ahead option for brunch, a potluck, or a weeknight dinner. You’ll need to flip it partway through cooking, so a nonstick or very well-seasoned pan is essential.

 

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.

Duck Fat Kale Chips

These crispy kale chips are delicious and addictive, but still good for you - the best kind of snack! 

Duck Fat Potatoes

Duck fat provides unmatched flavor and richness in this simple roasted side dish.

Apricot Upside-Down Cake

Zucchini-Chickpea Fritters with Red Onion Jam

These hearty little fritters use chickpeas and chickpeas flour as a binder instead of egg to great effect. The red onion jam is quick to make and so delicious, you won’t want to skip this extra step.

Roasted Corn with Cilantro and Queso Fresco

If you’re going with fresh corn, choose firm, tightly closed, freshly picked ears of corn, you don’t want any dried out kernels. Frozen is just fine if the super fresh stuff isn’t available.

Green Garlic Crostini

These crostini are topped with an easy, creamy spread that's loaded with spicy green garlic and tangy fromage blanc. 

Simple Omelet

This easy omelet is delicious as is, but is also a great jumping off point if you feel creative or have vegetables you want to use up, it lends itself so well to improvisation.

The addition of coconut oil and chia seeds have the benefit of giving you a boost of energy and keeping you full longer, just what we all need in the morning!

 

Coconut Oil Popcorn

Coconut oil is an excellent choice to use when popping corn: it has a very high smoking point, and gives it the most delicious, subtle, buttery and nutty flavor. Use this recipe as a base and get creative with toppings. My favorite is a generous sprinkle of nutritional yeast flakes.

Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict

This elegant brunch recipe for Eggs Benedict replaces the English muffin with a portobello mushroom, making it gluten-free and Paleo-friendly.

Lemon Asparagus Risotto

A creamy and rich risotto that highlights one of the best vegetables of spring, minus the cheese.

Tuna Asparagus Salade Nicoise

Tender blanched asparagus joins seared tuna, hard-boiled eggs, and wedges of golden potato for a very springtime Nicoise salad.

 

Mango with Cilantro, Coconut, and Chile Powder

This salad is light and flavorful, and is inspired by street vendors in Mexico who serve mango on a stick with hot sauce. Plus, it’s so easy to make: just mango, and a handful of fresh ingredients.

 

Duck Egg Cake with Rosemary

This cake is very very easy to make. If you don't want quite as much "ducky" flavor, substitute the duck fat with butter. If you don't like rosemary, omit it altogether, or use lemon verbena, sage, or winter savory instead. For a sweeter cake, increase the sugar to a full cup. Served with whipped cream and fresh fruit, this is a dessert that's sure to please.

Duck Egg Scramble

Rich and creamy duck eggs are higher in protein and fat than chicken eggs. A simple scramble highlights their flavor.

Fruity Moringa Smoothie

"I’m a big fan of smoothies. I keep sliced bananas and a canister of frozen orange juice in my freezer at all times for smoothies. Nothing quite perks up the flavor like a big ol’ scoop of concentrated 100% orange juice. I peel and slice ripe bananas into coins and place into a bag or freezer-safe container to freeze." - Melissa Reiss, Purchasing Assistant at Willy Street Co-op. 

Parmesan Drop Biscuits

A simple meal of soup or a roasted chicken becomes a divine repast with the addition of these meltingly tender biscuits. Drop biscuits may not look as perfect as biscuits that are rolled and cut out, but they are just as good, and require less cleanup. 

Swiss Chard and Sweet Potato Gratin

If prepping the Swiss chard is too time-consuming, using 5 or 6 cups of frozen spinach would be a good shortcut - just be sure to squeeze out excess water!

Avocado Fries with Queso Dip

Talk about gilding the lily! Ripe avocados get sliced into wedges, battered, fried, then served with creamy cheese sauce. Note that you do need a fry thermometer for best results.
