How to make healthy choices every day

Daikon Roll-Ups at Design*Sponge!

When I first began blogging, there were a few sites that I really looked up to. Of course we had the obvious ones like 101cookbooks, and anything written by good ol’ Martha, but I was also rather obsessed with Design*Sponge. No, it didn’t really have anything to do with food specifically, but there was something so alluring about Grace’s site. I think the domestic goddess inside me just loved (and still loves) pouring over images of others peoples’ lovely homes, clever DIYs and the tasty recipes. It’s kind of a one-stop shop for all the lifestyle inspiration you’ll ever need.

Seeing as I was such a fan, after a few years of blogging I decided to take the plunge and email Design*Sponge in hopes of contributing something to their “In the Kitchen with” column. To date, I have written to them on three separate occasions, and receiving nothing but their auto-reply each time. No big deal. They are busy ladies over there. And I figured I was nowhere near cool enough to be included. BUT! What should appear in my inbox last month but an email from them. Fist. Pump. I finally made it into the club.


I really love entertaining, and making beautiful food for friends seems to be on the top of my list most days. This time of year I find myself having many casual get-togethers because people are actually up for leaving their houses to socialize and spend time outside. Hooray! I made these Daikon-Roll Ups with Miso Mint Pea Filling especially for guests because they are so beautiful and fresh for summer, but you could easily make them as a little meal for yourself.

The roll-ups use daikon here, but you could also use thick carrots sliced in ribbons, or even cabbage or Swiss chard leaf cups. The miso mint pea filling is delicious as a dip and can be served on its own with crudités or toasts. Whatever you choose to do with it, I would still sprinkle the sesame on top – it’s a wonderful addition and a tasty compliment to the miso.

Thank you to Design*Sponge for asking me to contribute a recipe to your site – it is a true honor! Head on over to see the full recipe here

  • Hey Sarah B! Oprah recommends your blog in her most recent magazine and from the parts of your website that I have seen, I recommend it, too. I am looking forward to creating some of your healthy recipes because I also love whole foods. You’re awesome!

  • Yaii, absolutely love daikon radishes! Will be trying out this one. Looks simple and delicious, thanks for sharing another beautiful recipe.

  • This is lovely! Im new to this blog, but i absolutely love it. And its so cool you’ve taken your education in Toronto. I’m about to move there myself to study nutrition (the traditional way, though) and I have no idea what kind of city it actually is! Do you know of any good guides to Toronto, when it comes to raw food, vegetarian stuff and “where to find/get to know” people who are interested in this stuff?

    Wish you all the best!
    Greetings from Norway.

  • Dear Sarah, I’ve been following your blog for ages now and love it. I just found out that I’m pregnant. Could you do a post on eating during pregnancy, pleeeeease, or recommend a good source for New Roots-style eating while expecting? Thanks and Cheers from Berlin!

  • So much good news for you lately, your perseverance is reaping rewards! I hopped over to Design Sponge and it sounds like that blogger tends toward less healthy recipes, you just had to convince her that she needed a really healthy one for a change of pace! How did you get the daikon ribbons so thin and even?

  • I just made these and they were beautiful, yummy and so healthy! Love your work Sarah B xox Congrats on the feature in Design Sponge.

  • Hi Sarah, this looks great like so many of your other recipes but I’m stuck on an island so getting daikon is difficult. Do you think it would work with the long black radishes you can buy in France?

  • Congrats Sarah!!! These little daikon roll-ups look divine, totally my type of food!!! Making them tonight for sure since I have tons of fresh mint and I just picked up some daikon this morning. YOUR healthy innovative recipes and beautiful blog keep inspiring me everyday!

  • WOW!!! They looks really refreshing and original! I will try the recipe and I’m sure that it will be a big success with my friends, here in the warm summer of Milano!!! But all your recipes are amazing!!!

  • I shared your link of facebook earlier on today, but I thought I would let you know how beautiful these look. Totally inspired! Thanks for sharing!

  • Is there no end to your genius?? I have no idea where you get the inspiration for these amazing dishes, but whatever it is you’re doing, *don’t stop*. I recently made your Sexy Spring Rolls and have been on a black sesame seed kick ever since, can’t wait to bust them out for this recipe! And well done on being featured on Design*Sponge, you’ve earned it 🙂

  • Congratulations! That’s so exciting! These look spectacular. I love the idea of using the filling as a dip. Peas and miso sound like they’d make a winning combination. I love them both separately, but have never used them in a dish together. I’ve slipped out of the cooking zone lately, but you’re inspiring me to get back in the game! My blog is new, and recently I’ve been searching for people to follow for inspiration. I’ll be following you from now on! Your blog is great. 🙂
