Whole Roasted Tandoori Cauliflower with Mint Chutney

I grew up in what you might call a “flavour-free” household. I know I have mentioned before that neither of my parents were the keenest of cooks, so it will come as no surprise that the only seasonings to grace our plates growing up, were ketchup and ranch dressing.Needless to say, spices scared me. Before I learned how to cook I was afraid of eating anything out-of-the-ordinary because my sensitive taste buds couldn’t handle anything beyond…

Whole-Roasted Cauliflower with Skhug

Whole-Roasted Cauliflower with Skhug

If you’ve been reading My New Roots for a while, you’ll be familiar with my obsession with Middle Eastern cuisine. Ingredients like tahini, lemon, pomegranate, sumac, za’atar, cardamom, thyme, and sesame have big, bold flavours, and act as strong backbones for plant-based recipes, so I enjoy them on a regular basis and rely on them heavily in my recipe development. And if I am out and about in the world, I seek out restaurants serving this…

Cauliflower Buns & Bagels

Cauliflower Buns & Bagels

You guys. Cauliflower. Buns. I am crazy stoked about this. The idea for these simply brilliant, delicious, and totally surprising rolls came from my good friend Sophie, a vibrant, health-conscious lady that I actually met through my mother’s group. We quickly bonded over a shared love of cooking and raising healthy kids, so it didn’t take long before we were meeting up outside of the group for smoothie dates and trading kitchen secrets. A…

Secret Ingredient Frozen Hot Chocolate

Secret Ingredient Frozen Hot Chocolate

When I was in high school, the cool thing to do at lunch was eschew the basement cafeteria (obvi), leave the grounds altogether, and go to the local coffee shop. This made us feel like “adults” or something, sitting on plush velvet sofas, gossiping about so-and-so’s new haircut, and whose older brother we’d make out with while sipping a beverage that cost at least an hour’s worth of babysitting. Of course none of us really liked coffee, so we…

Fully-Loaded Spring Samosas with Sweet n’ Spicy Mint Chutney

Most people would consider laziness an undesirable trait. People like parents. Teachers. Bosses. But you know what? Sometimes great things are born out of laziness. Remember that batch of banana bread that turned into Banana Bread Pancakes? Genius! When I decided that I wanted to make samosas this week, the one thing stopping me was the dough. Just thinking about out how to make it thin, flaky and crispy without deep-frying it, and hopefully…

Ghee Whiz!

Hey you. Yeah, you.You’re still cooking with olive oil, aren’t you? Yup. Thought so.I am sure you’ve heard the news that this is a bad idea, but you’re not sure why so you just keep doing it. Sounds familiar. Sounds like me. For years I thought I was doing myself a huge favour by switching from butter to olive oil, as my diet moved from a standard diet to an organic, plant-based, whole foods diet, but it turns out I was a little mislead. First…

Sri Lankan Beetroot Curry & Kale Mallung

Sri Lankan Beetroot Curry & Kale Mallung

Where do I even begin? I guess I’ll start by saying that I feel like I am waking up from the most spectacular, flavourful, technicolour dream. Sri Lanka deeply touched me, from its incredible landscape, beautiful people and of course, the food. The food! The food. When I was first invited by Cinnamon Hotels and Resorts to go on a food tour of Sri Lanka, I was a bit uncertain – to be honest, I didn’t know anyone who had visited Sri Lanka…
