The Chef: Elizabeth and Kashi
The Menu: Pizza! Kashi recently released a new, vegan pizza—the Sicilian Veggie variety—which we had the pleasure of sampling today. The white-bean-infused tomato sauce was a hit, as was the addition of some melted mozzarella Teese, which we just happened to have on hand. The pizza's crispy crust was also topped with grilled eggplant, roasted red bell peppers, caramelized onions, and kale. Aside from turning on the oven, Elizabeth's big contribution to the meal was chopping up some mizuna, carrots, and bell pepper for a lightning-fast salad.
The Goods: We're deep in the fact-checking trenches this week, so it was a welcome relief to find our freezer full of ready-made lunch options. While the category of "The Chef" might be something of a misnomer today, we were all happy to quickly munch down a couple slices of warm, yummy pizza, and then head right back to work.
