A fresh take on hippie health food from the bestselling author of Salad Freak, Jess Damuck

Emphasizing balance, recipe developer Jess Damuck shares more than 100 of her favorite easy, vegetable-centric dishes, which include just an occasional bit of meat, dairy, or decadence. Jess turns her considerable talent for creating gorgeous, obsession-worthy recipes to traditional health food—from smoothies to salads to grain bowls and tofu stir-fries—giving the genre a playful and delicious update, amping up the colors, textures, and flavors, and adding her own innovations that challenge our expectations about what health food can be. These recipes are perfect for a dinner party, but also doable for any busy weeknight, including for dishes such as:

  • Jicama, Basil, Avocado, and Sprout Summer Rolls
  • Roasted Cauliflower Flatbreads with Spicy Tahini and Sumac Onions
  • Snap Peas with Feta, Chile, and Mint
  • Brothy White Beans with Parmesan and Pesto
  • Crispy Rice and Spicy Salmon Bowls with Quick Pickles and Greens
  • Vegan Mushroom Lasagna
  • Date-Sweetened Carrot Cake

Whether healthy eating is your norm or you are just looking for a reset, this book is all about making simple, irresistible food that you will want to eat again and again. When good-for-you food tastes like this, it’s pretty easy to be a health nut.
