The national contest is calling for recipe submissions beginning April 1 through May 15, and the top winners will be announced on June 17 in celebration of Eat All Your Veggies Day. Allens is bringing Feast Your Veggies On This back in a continued effort to promote healthy eating habits, and to crown 2011's new wave of the country's best veggie cooks.
