Mango Lassi

A bit of cardamom takes this simple smoothie from everyday to unexpected.

Sautéed Artichokes Baked with Mozzarella

Marcella Hazan says, "Whenever I have demonstrated this dish, professional cooks...were startled at how dark I allowed the artichokes to get. But it is only then, when they have deeply and confidently browned, that they develop flavor, sapore."

Strawberry Icebox Cake

This stunning no-bake cake is suprisingly easy, and showcases spring's delicious strawberries.

Red Curry Tofu

This is a customer favorite from the Willy Street Co-op's kitchen. Make a hearty sandwich with it, or eat it by the spoonful.

Chickpea of the Sea Salad

This delicious salad is a dead ringer for tuna salad, but has no tuna (or other animal products) in sight! Spread on hearty, toasted bread with crisp romaine leaves for a yummy sandwich, or place a dollop on a green salad. This is also a nice dip for crackers or vegetable spears. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

So much more than the sum of their parts! The shredded coconut in these cookies makes them slightly reminiscent of macaroons, the oats make them hearty, and the chocolate bits deliver dark, intense richness. And they're made without eggs, butter or flour. 

Gluten-free Macaroni and Cheese

This is not a fancy or refined macaroni and cheese; this is mac and cheese straight from childhood, just yummy and cheesy!

Cashew Curry

You can get creative with the vegetables here: use what's in the fridge or what looks good at the store.

Moroccan Carrot and Chickpea Salad

This salad is already quite hearty, with dried fruit, toasted nuts, and lots of fragrant fresh mint, but could be made even more substantial with the addition of bulgur or couscous.

Savoy Cabbage Chips

This is an interesting variation on the (almost!) ubiquitous kale chip that has been popping up everywhere. Savoy cabbage, being the showiest of all cabbage with its crinkly leaves, makes a very elegant snack.

Roasted Moroccan Potatoes

This recipe calls for harissa, a thick North African chili sauce. If it's new to your pantry, you'll find that it's a versatile ingredient that's wonderful in fish or meat stews, couscous dishes, or as a rub for meats.

Potato Rosemary Strudel

This is one of those effortlessly delicious and good-looking dishes that's great to have in your repertoire. It also re-heats really well, so bake it a day in advance if you'd like, then put in the oven to heat through just before serving.

Lower Fat Lefse

These lefse are not only easy to make, they are also lower in fat than typical lefse!

Chocolate Beet Cake

Crushed beets are an inexpensive way to make a nearly molten, incredibly moist cake and highlight deep chocolate flavor.

Slow Cooker Spicy Red Beans

Who doesn't love slow cooker recipes?

Adjust the level of spices in this dish with more or less cayenne. Serve with greens and cornbread.

Mushroom Tostadas

Mushrooms' texture and flavor hold up well to the warm spices of Mexican-inspired dishes.  

Muhammara Roasted Red Pepper Spread

Muhammara is a delicious spread made from toasted walnuts are roasted red peppers. It's popular throughout Syria, Lebanon, and Turkey. This recipe calls for lemon juice, but many versions call for pomegranate molasses instead. If you have some on hand, you may want to try it instead of lemon juice.

Root Ribbons with Sage

Burdok, sweet potatoes, turnips, or other root vegetables would be good substitutes for the ones listed below. Avoid beets though, as they would turn your dish scarlet.

Blood Orange Salsa

This is a unique take on salsa, incorporating vibrant blood oranges and creamy avocado.

Corn Pudding

This is a delicate dish, somewhat like a Mexican version of Southern spoon bread. It's delicious with ham or grilled meats.

Gingerbread Cake Cookies

These are a cakey version of gingerbread cookies; soft with molasses, warm spices, and a crunchy layer of sparkling sugar.

Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter

This is Marcella Hazan's classic recipe for tomato sauce. It calls for just four ingredients and is celebrated for its simplicity and surprisingly rich flavor.

Pumpkin Fatayer

These are delightful little pumpkin packets, wrapped in a crackly, golden crust. Don't be scared off by the dough - it's easy!

Shallot Tarte Tatin

The shallots and onions in this rustic tart take on a mild, sweet flavor, brightened by balsamic and red wine vinegar.

Satsuma Sorbet

Whoever said icy treats should only be savored in the peak of summer? Satsumas shine in mid-winter. Here's a special way to enjoy them.

Mushroom and Wild Rice Frittata

This frittata is packed with a flavorful medley of ingredients and is perfect for weekend brunch. The chewy wild rice is an unusal but satisfying addition.

Date and Pistachio Balls

These little truffle-like gems are deceptively rich, but contain only wholesome, healthy ingredients. 

Tofu Parmesan

Try this delicious Tofu Parmesan on sandwiches, or with a side of your favorite pasta dish.
