LEPRECHAUN CAKE AND OTHER TALES
A VEGETARIAN STORY-COOKBOOK

The Vegetarian Resource Group and Vonnie Crist have published Leprechaun Cake and Other Tales -- A Vegetarian Story-Cookbook. Featured are over 40 healthy recipes and 4 fantasy tales.

A leprechaun in the kitchen, baby dragon down the block, friendly forest deer from South America, and the Snow Queen's Unicorn teach children and the adults who love them, about friendship, caring, and healthy cooking.

In this multicultural story book, learn to accept others from different backgrounds by sharing stories and good-tasting dishes. Enjoy Bina and David's favorite recipes: Rainy Day Lemonade, Leprechaun Cake, Fruit French Toast, North African Pea Dish, and Mrs. Prabhu's Rice Pudding. Help Mitsu Lee cheer up her grandmother at a Fourth of July Parade and Picnic (with a little assistance from Lucky the Dragon). Brighten your day by making Quick Fireworks Salsa, Dragon Party Punch, and Tia's Favorite Applesauce. Visit South America with Deer and Jaguarundi for a lesson about friendship. Join their feast with: Jaguar's Wedding Stew, Blended Fruit Drink, and Frozen Banana Treat.
