Tomato Recipes Needed


In an effort to create a useful resource for Michigan institutions looking to purchase more local food, Cultivate Michigan will include institutional-scale recipes in our toolkits for each Featured Food from Michigan. Next up is Tomatoes and we are reaching out to institutional food service directors/chefs from across the state to provide tested recipes that feature any variety of tomatoes.  If you have a favorite recipe, pass it on!

Please send recipe contributions to Along with your name, role and affiliation, please include the following with your recipe submission:

·         Recipe Name

·         Ingredients     

·         Directions

·         Serving size

·         Number of servings

·         Nutritional analysis (if available)

·         Photos of final dish (if available)


This is a great opportunity for you to be highlighted in our toolkits for your amazing work as chefs, menu planners, and food service/nutrition directors. Check out the Asparagus Purchasing Guide  and the Blueberry Purchasing Guide to see how we showed off the recipes of other food service directors, as well as other materials to help you purchase, use and promote Michigan asparagus and blueberries when in season!
