Fashion Flash Book Review– My New Roots by Sarah Britton
I estimate that I have cooked 1800 COVID lock down meals and I am really sick of my own cooking. Looking thru my pantry, I saw that I was using the same ingredients eg garlic, soy sauce, mustard, thyme and rosemary, To make my meals more interesting I needed to expand my palette. Scanning my bookshelves, I pulled out a gorgeous yet unused cookbook. “My New Roots” by Sarah Britton offers seasonal plant based meals. I started off with Spring and tried out hand pies made with peas, scallions, and feta cheese and seasoned with caraway seeds and ghee. These ingredients certainly woke up my taste buds. I pushed the seasons a bit to try a refreshing melon lemonade garnished with mint. Other recipes have new to me ingredients that include brown rice flour, sorrel, lemongrass and hemp seeds. I think I am going to enjoy my own cooking again.
