Pulse of Montana Recipe Contest



We are taking the “Pulse of Montana” by collecting delicious recipes featuring two pulse crops (chickpeas and lentils) that are part of the Montana Harvest of the Month program. The Montana Harvest of the Month (HOM) Pulse of Montana Recipe Contest (“Recipe Contest”) is an opportunity for HOM sites to test and submit recipes for a chance to win one of six $100 prizes for their site.

The Recipe Contest is open to individuals representing any site that is registered for and participating in HOM during the contest period. Sites that are currently eligible for HOM include: early care and education programs, schools, afterschool programs, Summer Food Service Programs, healthcare facilities, and business/community pilot sites. New HOM sites that register during the contest period are eligible to enter the Recipe Contest.

Each site can enter up to two times—once for chickpeas and once for lentils.
