Description

The Feeding your mob recipes booklet is based on the fruit and veg cookbook put together by the former Mid North Coast Aboriginal Partnership.

The booklet has many popular and nutritious fruit and vegetable recipes, including pictures to show how to prepare the recipes in a fun and easy way. The recipes include 'bush tucker tips' so that Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people can become familiar with foods that have been part of the Aboriginal diet for many years, and maybe try some of these traditional ingredients when preparing Aboriginal food.

The recipes in this booklet are very economical to make, and use a variety of fresh, dried, canned and frozen fruit and vegetables.
