White Lentil Risotto with Mushrooms

White Lentil Risotto with Mushrooms

Eating out is a grand seduction. From the moment I step into a restaurant, I am totally open and utterly surrendered to the experience. The first thing I notice when I enter is the smell – I actually like it to hit me with an assertive thwack – like someone proudly shouting a rainbow of aromas to my face that something amazing is happening in the kitchen. I love sitting down at the table, gently touching the cutlery, unfolding the napkin and…

Late Summer Abundance Bowl

Late Summer Abundance Bowl

  I have a serious shopping addiction. But it’s not for clothes, or house wares, or even kitchen tools. No. It’s for health food. Although I am incredibly excited to go back to Canada every summer to see my family and friends, the other thing I unapologetically look forward to the most, is browsing the aisles of the natural foods co-op. Oh, I could spend hours upon hours wandering around, checking out what’s new and exciting in the world…

Namaste: नमस्ते

The 30-Day Yoga Challenge is complete! Congratulations to everyone who participated! Even if you only did yoga for a few days in a row, that is a start and you should be very proud of yourself. For me, this was a very eye-opening experience. Not because I found Nirvana or discovered that I can twist myself into a neat little pretzel, but because I realized how difficult it really is just to shift gears for five minutes a day to anything other…

Winter Rainbow Panzanella

Winter Rainbow Panzanella

Dear colour. I miss you. Please come back soon. Your pal, Sarah B I’ve joked before about the oh-so dark, single-toned, and super grey city Copenhagen becomes in the winter. After months upon months of this, I feel as if my eyes have turned into little slits, and only capable of seeing in black and white. Needing some kind of sign that I wasn’t turning into a subterranean mammal, I cycled down to the central market of Copenhagen last week to…

Tempeh Tacos with Raw Cashew Queso

Tempeh Tacos with Raw Cashew Queso

I have to start by saying how incredibly moved I was by the comments on the last post, and the emails I received from you guys – a deep, heartfelt thank you. I knew that opening myself up would spark a lot of conversation, but I never imagined the impact it would have, not only in regards to the incredible outpouring of support, but for sharing your own stories and struggles. Time and time again I am reminded of the power in vulnerability and…

White Velvet Soup and a Guest Post at Green Kitchen Stories

The snow just won’t stop. The world is quiet and soft. It’s time for a bowl of soup. It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a soup recipe here on My New Roots, and this weather is serving as divine inspiration for a piping hot bowl of creamy comfort food. It combines a few of my favorite things, golden-roasted cauliflower, garlic, onions and velvety lima beans, all blended up to create the most creamy, rich-tasting, delectable soup to cross…

Obsessed with Cruciferous

I wish my grandmother was hooked up to the internet, as she would shed a proud tear reading this post about my new found obsession with brussels sprouts. When I was four years old she forced me to eat them, and I clearly remember bawling hysterically while trying to chew the sour little shrunken heads without tasting them. I was officially traumatized and knew that we would never get along. The brussels sprouts I mean. I have since forgiven my…

Fantastic Falafel Waffles

Fantastic Falafel Waffles

Falafels. These definitely sit at the top of my list for most attempts at a healthy makeover and at the bottom of the list of success. How to get them crisp without deep frying? How to get them to hold together without eggs? What is the right balance of herbs and spices? Why are they so darn delicious at a restaurant and so darn underwhelming at home?! First, it involves NOT cooking your chickpeas. Nope. Not even for a second. Of course I know…
