The Menu: Splendid brown rice spaghetti mixed with pinto beans and covered in a savory peanut sauce made up the bulk of this tasty meal. Chas also prepared a side of perfectly steamed broccoli marinated in his simple, signature sauce: olive oil, Braggs Liquid Aminos, and nutritional yeast. A wonderful green salad filled with chickpeas, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, broccoli slaw, avocado, and mixed greens completed this well-balanced, satisfying meal.
The Goods: As you may have already noticed, our VN's Chef Chas has returned! In March, Joseph's friend Chas spent a week at the VNHQ, cooking lunch, helping out around the office, and generally winning our hearts forever. We were all incredibly sad to see him go, and we begged daily for his return. No, this is in no way an exaggeration, and yes, we realize it sounds sort of creepy. Being the kind, generous soul that he is, Chas agreed to return to our offices for a three-week stay. Today marked his first day back as VN chef, and we couldn't be more thrilled. If you need proof, don't take our word for it: We believe the amazing meal pictured above says it all.
