Each year during Nutrition Month in March, our culinary staff participates in Veggie Mania, an internal competition to develop extraordinary vegan dishes. Our Nutrition Program, VEG, focuses on increasing plant based foods and this competition allows us to add new recipes to our menu each year.
Samples of the top three entries will be offered at the Earth Day Farmer's Market on April 21, 2016.
Below you'll find this year's winners. Recipes and nutritionals for each of these dishes will be posted soon.

Kasha & Vegetable Ragout over Fried Polenta by Mark Lucanese, Cook, The Court @ Donahue
Thanks to everyone who participated! Veggie Mania continues to get more competitive and creative each year! We appreciate our talented cooks and chefs who create healthy and sustainable meals each day for the Villanova University community.
