Beets n Roots have worked with Rosie Letts, a nutritionist, to create their new menu. It’s 99% vegan, with cheese being an added extra if required. All the dishes are prepared to maintain the maximum amount of nutrients. Beets n Roots is located just off Whiteladies Road on Cotham Hill, meaning it’s really easy to get to and there’s loads of other things to do locally if you want to make a day of it.
I’ve visited twice now; one for the bloggers’ brunch, and then again for lunch.
The first time I visited I had the avo toast. It comes with a spread of tahini underneath. I was a bit unsure of the tahini when I took my first bite but by the end I was in love. It’s such a great combo.
I got a chance to make a smoothie bowl which was so much fun! I had the choco smoothie topped with granola, raspberries and kiwi. I loved assembling it. I’ve seen so many on Instagram and it was lovely to finally try one.
The second time I visited I chose a chilli buddha bowl, which comes with a choice of three salads. I went for the slaw, roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli.
I also tried all the juices, a golden (turmeric) milk and a choco milk, and the homemade “Snickers” bar. The red juice was my favourite; I love beetroot and the addition of apple and lemon made it so fresh and moreish.
Everything I tried was incredibly tasty and I felt so nourished after eating it. I honestly wish there was a branch by my house so I could eat food like this every day. My food was complimentary, but I would absolutely go there again and pay full price. For a guideline, the avo toast was, I think, £4.95, the buddha bowl was £7.95 and the made-to-order juices are £3.75
Rosie has made the recipes available on her website. Please invite me round if you try them out!
