We attempted to sprout wild rice for the first time with this dish of sprouted wild rice, toasted pecans, shelled green peas, and young carrots. Adapted slightly from Sarah B.’s My New Roots, this recipe marks our 24th completed dish from Sarah B.’s book.
This dish was awesome. Our tomatoes have been growing rather slowly (well, very slowly), so we stopped at a few farmer’s markets today to pick up some. Although we couldn’t find the heirloom varieties Sarah B. wanted, this dish still tasted like the fullness of summer. As the recipe suggested, we used some crusty whole-grain bread to sop up the extra dressing. Love. This is our 22nd dish from My New Roots.
We cheated a bit with this next dish: Four corners lentil soup. It’s the first “winter” dish we made from Sarah B.’s My New Roots, and we made it in late July. Still, we had almost everything in the pantry, and we needed something easy. It did not disappoint. Red lentils are the best for soups. And the lemon slices balanced the cumin and red pepper very well. This marks our 21st recipe from Sarah B.’s book, which means we’ve completed a full 20% of her recipes.
In all of my 28 years, I never have owned a blender. I’ve had all sorts of food choppers and food processors but never a blender.
I still don’t. But my mom now does, and it’s a wonderful thing. We decided to make these raspberry breeze smoothies made of super simple ingredients: raspberries, bananas, fresh mint, ground flax seeds, lemon juice, rice milk, and pure maple syrup. This is just slightly adapted from a recipe in Sarah B.’s My New Roots.
