Savory Carrot Recipe Competition 2012
February 4-12, 2012
Thanks for all the submissions! Cumin Roasted Carrots took first place! Congratulations to April Howard. Her recipe will be featured on our hot bar next week!
Local carrots are healthy and sweet and are one of the few vegetables still available from local farms in February. They’re also incredibly versatile and taste great in soups or salads, roasted, mashed, pickled, in savory breads, chutneys, or pretty much anywhere else you can think to put them.
Three finalist recipes were selected based on:
- Proportion of local ingredients (the higher the better)
- Simplicity (we love simple recipes)
The finalist recipes were sampled at the Burlington Winter Farmers’ Market on Saturday, February 18 and people voted on their favorite. Congratulations to April Howard for getting the most votes. She won a $100 gift card to the Co-op!
