The Chef: Colleen
The Menu: A sensationally savory one-pot meal. Colleen prepared a Mediterranean-inspired tomato soup with cumin and other spices, garbanzo beans, coconut milk, and eggplant, then added rice and simmered it all together into a totally tasty lunch. Alongside, a salad of mixed greens and grated carrots and beets finished off the plate.
The Goods: It's a bittersweet day here at the VNHQ, as it's the last day for our two stellar editorial assistants, Melissa and Stacy. These ladies have been phenomenal during their time here, and while we're so happy that we had the opportunity to work with both of them, it's definitely sad that they're leaving. We wish them the very best in the future, and if anyone needs us, we'll be drowning our sorrows in leftover ice-cream cake and saké.
