Top Tomato 2014: Send us your best recipes

The Food section’s annual Top Tomato recipe contest is accepting entries. You don’t have to live in the Washington area to participate.

Recipes must be original (honor system here, folks), must come from home cooks (chefs, put down your knives) and must have no more than 13 ingredients (including salt and pepper). You may enter as many as five recipes.

A heads up: List the ingredients in the order they are used in the recipe directions. It’s best not to enter recipes you have sent into Top Tomato in previous years. If you plan to send a recipe for soups or sauces, make sure it’s something special: We get lots of those. Something else we get each year: recipes for eating tomatoes out of hand, and for simple tomato sandwiches.

The winners will be featured in our special tomato issue on Aug. 20. (Check out last year’s winners online: wapo.st/1rNctnr.)

Send recipes to: Recipe Contest, The Food Section, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071; or by e-mail, with “TOP TOMATO CONTEST” in the subject field, to food@washpost.com. The deadline for entries is midnight July 30; we encourage you to enter early. Include your name, address and daytime phone number. If you have questions, send them via e-mail and we’ll answer right away.
