Seasonal Recipes & Resources

Seasonal Recipes & Local Produce Resources 2023/2024 

These recipes and handouts have been created by the 2024 class of Dietetic Interns from Tulane University’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. The recipes are designed to be big on flavor while being simple and easy to prepare. The handouts feature seasonal, locally available produce and include tips for purchasing, storing, and preparing each item. In partnership with our ReFresh Project neighbors, SPROUT NOLA, we also included growing tips you can use if you want to grow vegetables at home!
