Surprise! It's Kale!

The Chef: Anna and Trader Joe's

The Menu: A kale salad topped with tomatoes, edamame, slivered almonds, dried cranberries, and some of Dharma's lemon-tahini dressing

The Dish: After a weekend of parties, late-night vegan cheesteaks, and the most decadent brunch I've ever attended (check Press Pass on Thursday to find out more), a kale salad was the only thing I could possibly think of eating. And it's going to be a very short respite from decadent eating. Tomorrow night, the VNHQ will play host to the after-party for the San Francisco premiere of Vegucated, a charming and funny documentary about three New Yorkers who go vegan for six weeks. Post film (and Q&A session!), we'll all be noshing on treats from Obsessive Confection Disorder, So Delicious, Earth Balance, and Honest Tea. While I'm pretty darn excited to taste (OK fine, devour) these treats, for now, I'll stick to the kale. Want to join us tomorrow night? Buy a ticket today!
