Lobo Growers' Market Recipe Swap

Recipes enrich outreach effort


Whether it’s sliced fruit mixed with Greek yogurt, or your mother’s homemade green-chile cheese enchiladas, recipes for great dishes are meant to be shared.

UNM’s Lobo Growers Market held a recipe swap Wednesday, encouraging students and vendors to share their favorite recipes. The recipe swap was part of the six-week market series featuring fresh food and produce. Student market manager Kimberly Barnett said the event tries to help students eat healthier.

“I think that people see here that they have food that they have access to now, and they don’t quite know what to do with it,” Barnett said. “You might walk past an eggplant and ask ‘What am I going to do with an eggplant?’”

Barnett shared a recipe for apple crisp, a dish her mother used to make for her when she was younger. Read more.
