"Simply Vibrant is intuitively organized and brilliantly executed. It illustrates how many of us are striving to eat these days: crave-able, template-style recipes with seasonal touches, simple techniques, and an underlying nourishing essence that reads as encouraging, rather than prescriptive. Anya's approach starts with a deep-rooted reverence for what nature provides in all of its seasons--and in all of its sometimes neglected or wasted forms. The thoughtful uses for carrot tops, chickpea soaking liquid, and barley cooking water--like the rest of the book's delicious plant-based recipes--speak to both virtue and pure enjoyment. This book inspires me to cook (and live!) with a deeper sense of care and appreciation." - Laura Wright, author of The First Mess Cookbook "Anya's approach to food and the seasons always stands out as creative, inventive, and colorful. Simply Vibrant contains an abundance of inspiring recipes and clever tricks to add more nourishment and adventure to your everyday meals." - Amy Chaplin, James Beard award-winning author of At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen "Anya has the incredible ability to inspire her readers to cook, but more importantly, she helps them tap into their own intuition to create delicious meals in a more relaxed way. I love her emphasis on seasonality, and her creative approach to leaf-to-root cooking, using every ingredient to its fullest potential without wasting a single seed! This recipe collection is bursting with global flavors, unique ingredient combinations, and of course, vibrancy on the highest level." - Sarah Britton, holistic nutritionist and author of My New Roots and Naturally Nourished "We are longtime fans of Golubka Kitchen and Anya's creative and beautiful plant-based recipes. Her new book is jam-packed with healthy, flavorful and simple recipes and lots of interesting suggestions on how to cook with the odds and ends of produce that usually are discarded - like making marmalade from watermelon rinds and risotto using broccoli stems. So clever!" - David Frenkiel & Luise Vindahl, Green Kitchen Stories
