Del Monte asked home cooks to freshen up recipes in the Add Some Garden Contest.

The company challenged consumers to submit creative tips on how they make good meals great by adding a can of Del Monte fruit or vegetables to a recipe.

Del Monte’s Facebook fans then voted for the best tips. Now, Facebook fans can vote to select the grand prize winner.

The finalists include a home cook from Issaquah — the creator of Peachy Keen Ceviche. Consumers can vote for a semifinalist recipe through Thursday on Del Monte’s Facebook page.

The top honoree receives a culinary tour worth $10,000. Organizers plan to reveal the winner Feb. 15.

“Government recommendations call for at least 2½ cups of fruits and veggies a day – the goal should be to fill half your plate with all forms of fruits and veggies at every meal. Unfortunately, Americans aren’t even eating half this amount,” Sarah Ludmer, Del Monte Foods senior nutritionist, said in a statement. “Del Monte canned fruits and vegetables contain the same essential nutrients as fresh making them a tasty, nutritious addition to any meal.”
