Orange-Ginger Carrot "Noodles"

Buy the widest carrots you can find for this dish, because they will be easiest to slice. If your co-op sells a spiralized carrot “noodle,” or even spiralized squash, you can use it for this recipe; reduce the roasting time if you’re using summer squash “noodles.” Serve on top of or alongside cooked salmon fillets for a main dish, or place  leftover cold soba noodles in a bowl, add the carrot “noodles” and drizzle with Thai peanut sauce.

Maple Glazed Carrots

Bathed in maple syrup and butter, sweet carrots become a special treat. If you find bunched carrots with tops, pick the bunch with the thinnest carrots and leave a bit of the stem attached for a pretty presentation.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

These easy sweet potatoes are sure to bring compliments as a holiday side dish, a mellow accompaniment for roast beef or braised tempeh, or alongside a tandoori chicken breast. The coconut milk makes them extra flavorful — and dairy-free.

Roasted Heirloom Pumpkin & Cauliflower with Cheesy Polenta

Some days, we think about living off this creamy, cheesy polenta alone. But then we remember to eat our vegetables too! The cauliflower and winter squash could be easily substituted with other items you have on hand, like mushrooms or sweet potato. 

Peanut Sesame Noodles

Noodles with peanut sauce is a family favorite, served warm or cold. Creamy peanut sauce over noodles and veggies create an intoxicating dish that's just as good the next day, too. Substitute almond or other nut butters for those with a peanut allergy.

Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

No mushy tomatoes here! Using a quick flash of high heat, this recipe imparts a lot of flavor into the tomatoes with only a few ingredients and a short amount of time. 

Goddess Bowl

Grain and noodle bowls are the way to go for simple, flexible meals. The easy tahini dressing has enough Sriracha sauce to make it exciting, but if you don't like it hot you can always cut the amount in half. Customize with your favorite cooked or shredded veggies, proteins or sauces.


The name of this iconic Tuscan stew comes from its history: “ribollita” means “reboiled,” and some say that the original version was made from the leftovers of yesterday’s minestrone, with bread added. Add just about any seasonal vegetable to the dish: cubed potato, parsnip, rutabaga or a handful of spinach.

Simple Vegetable Curry

Coconut milk is a fantastic simmer sauce — sturdy enough to boil and full of sweet, coconut flavor. Keep a few cans in the pantry and you can always make a delicious, creamy curry dinner in just a few minutes. Add cooked brown or jasmine rice from the co-ops’ deli and you’re done!
