CARSON, Calif., Nov. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cedarlane Natural Foods®, a leader in the natural frozen foods category, today launched 'Cedarlane's Search for America's Best Family Vegetarian Recipe' contest. The nationwide family recipe contest celebrates the company's focus on family, lifestyle and healthful home cooked meals, especially as America gives thanks at Thanksgiving with food and family gatherings always central to the season.
Starting today and running through December 30, Cedarlane encourages participants nationwide to submit their favorite vegetarian family recipe on their official Facebook page. The winning dish will be introduced as a Cedarlane frozen entree.
For more than 30 years, Cedarlane Natural Foods has used fresh, natural ingredients to deliver healthful, easy-to-prepare dishes with the farm-to-fork flavor that consumers expect from the brand. The contest winner will receive a supply of their entree plus a trip to Los Angeles with one guest that will include hotel accommodations, airfare, a day at a Southern California theme park, and a tour of the Cedarlane campus. Additionally, the winning recipe will be featured on the Cedarlane website complete with an on-line, real-time introduction of the winner.
"Cedarlane has championed our own favorite family recipes for decades, including many that I first developed in my own kitchen," said Robert Atallah, Founder and President, Cedarlane Natural Foods. "This innovative contest demonstrates to our loyal and wonderful customers, and hopefully new customers too, how perfect it is to celebrate America's time-honored family vegetarian recipes. Our customers have always invited us into their kitchen, now we invite them into ours."
Participants will be asked to include a description of the recipe, why it is a family favorite, and a photo of the dish. The top five entries with the most Facebook likes will be named as finalists and then a winner will be selected by Cedarlane nutritionists and advisors seeking that special dish with unique flavor combinations. To be eligible, each special recipe must be a vegetarian breakfast, lunch or dinner entree.
Cedarlane Natural Foods vegetarian products are currently available at grocery and natural food markets throughout the U.S. and Canada. Products range from breakfast, lunch, and dinner items and include the CedarLEAN line of low calorie, high fiber soup and wrap combos and egg white frittatas.
