The Chef: Colleen and Herbivore
The Menu: A marinated kale salad with fresh tomatoes and cucumber, and a grilled shawarma with soy chicken, eggplant, avocado, potatoes, seasoned onions, pickles, tahini, and hot sauce.
The Goods: Two of the dishes Herbivore always nails is its kale salad and shawarma. And today I ordered both. Well, I shared both with Assistant Editor Anna Peraino, and they were absolutely delicious. Today our staff celebrated the start date of our Fall internship program and welcomed brand-new editorial assistants Hilary Pollack and Joni Sweet. Per VegNews tradition, we took our new staffers out to lunch to toast their first day and ended up with several kale salads and shawarmas around the table. They're that good! We then returned to the VNHQ and dove into a platter of vegan goodies from Salt Lake City's City Cakes & Cafe—everything from peanut butter bars, mocha cookies, and fudge brownies. Happy Monday!
Several VN staffers enjoyed Herbivore's signature shawarma—eggplant, potatoes, soy chicken, and hot sauce in a grilled tortilla.
