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. 

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.

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 Orange Pancakes

These lightly sweet, golden, and fluffy pancakes are topped with a simple citrus-y cranberry sauce.

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. 

Gluten-free Pumpkin Bar

Here's a recipe for one of the Co-op's most popular baked goods, so you can make it at home!

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.

Pumpkin Bread

This sweet bread bakes up into a deep brown the color of gingerbread, with a tender crumb, and a crust with a pleasant crunch. If you like nuts, chopped walnuts or pecans would make a nice addition.

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.

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.

Green Beans with Almond Pesto

Try using a combination of purple, yellow, and green beans for an even more colorful side dish, perfect alongside grilled burgers.

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.

 

Apricot Upside-Down Cake

Thanks to spelt flour, almond meal, and ground coconut, this cake has an intensely flavorful and delicate crumb, and the tender apricots in it are plentiful. It’s well worth turning the oven on, and would be welcome at breakfast or as an afternoon snack.

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.
