The My New Roots Cookbook

My New Roots - Inspired Plant-Based Recipes for Every Season


It’s here.
Well, almost. And I am too excited to wait another day (by the sounds of it, you are too) so I’m making it possible for you to reserve your copy this minute! My New Roots – Inspired Plant-Based Recipes for Every Season (Clarkson Potter, NY-2015 and Appetite, YVR-2015) will officially be released March 31, 2015, but you can purchase it now (like, right now right now), have a *few* sleeps and it will be on your doorstep. Ka-BAM!

So what is this thing all about? The book includes over 100 plant-based and seasonal recipes, almost all of which are entirely new (I had a to keep a few blog classics in there for good measure, you know?). Most of the recipes are also vegan, many are gluten-free and some are 100% raw. I tried to include a range of dishes from the very easy, to those that are more fun food “projects” that require fermentation and such. There are fancy things to impress your best guests, and tasty basics for weeknight family-style meals. I also created a lot of make-ahead dishes and snacks because, let’s face it: even I don’t have time to cook every single day!

There is an entire section of the book dedicated solely to essential techniques – the kitchen processes I use on a daily basis and that form the foundation of so many recipes here on the blog and in the book. I thought it was important to clearly explain and really emphasize that knowing exactly how to cook beans, make nut butter, grow sprouts etc, can open up your culinary world and make a confident cook out of just about anyone who can boil water.

There is a pantry section, listing the most important things to always have on hand to make healthy staples, and a little info on why I dig them.

All the photographs were taken by me (!!!) which everyone thought would be downright insane / impossible, but I did it anyway. ‘Cause I’m a nutcase. And I didn’t want to have to share all that amazing food with a photographer (sort of kidding?).

Most importantly, the book emphasizes deliciousness. Foods that inspire you to jump out of bed in the morning so you can enjoy a breakfast that tastes incredible and is also good for you. Meals so yummy, your friends and family will be begging for more. And desserts so deceptively indulgent, that will keep you on track towards a more balanced, energized life, always.

I am so darn proud to share this book with the world. My heart on paper, all bound together for you to cook from for many years to come. I could not have done this without you, your support and enthusiasm for My New Roots over all of these years. YOU made this possible! Thank you for encouraging me to tackle this dream of mine, and help it come true. Really, thank you.

Can’t wait to see the unfolding of this project from here on out! I promise to keep you in the loop as it moves forward. And did I mention you can pre-order it NOW?!?

Huge gratitude,
Sarah B.

    I’m so excited for you Sarah! When I first found your blog a few years ago, it inspired me to identify with the plant-loving, gardening girl that I truly am.

    I’ve just pre-ordered through Amazon – can’t wait until March! I missed out on the pantry ebook and am looking forward to that part of the hardcover. Even if I didn’t want the book, I would order it anyway out of gratitude for everything I’ve gained from this blog. This is my primary resource now that my son is vegan. Thank you!

    I’m sooooo so soooo excited for your book. I stumbled upon your blog when I was feeling particularly low, due to post partum health issues (my baby girl is also a November 2014 baby!!) and work stress, and I needed a heathy pick me up…. Your rawlos were my salvation! Everyone I make them for fall in love too. I’ve tried several of your other recipes and am loving eating and creating food. I can’t wait to get your book. I assume with yor Canadian roots I’ll be able to get it in canada too?

    Keep up the great work!
