Veggie recipes wanted for statewide contest

Published May 20. 2011 05:33PM

The Pennsylvania Vegetable Marketing and Research Program is looking for recipe entries from Pennsylvania residents for the "Simply Delicious, Simple Nutritious" vegetable recipe contest. The entry deadline is June 30.

A panel of four judges will review the written recipe entries and select 16 finalist recipes to be prepared at the cook-off.

Four finalist recipes will be chosen in each of the following four categories: tomatoes/peppers/eggplant, melons/cucumbers, summer squash/zucchini and winter squash/pumpkins.

Recipe entries must contain at least one of the vegetables in the category title as a major ingredient.

Recipes will be chosen on the basis of creativity, nutrition/healthfulness, ease of preparation, and overall appeal.

A $100 prize will be awarded to the winner in each category. Other finalists will each receive a $25 gift certificate for the farm market of their choice.

Recipes must be created or modified by the contestant or a member of the contestant's family. Recipes previously published in a copyrighted publication will not be eligible.

For more information about the contest, visit or call (717) 694-3596.
