Seattle-based food writer Kim O’Donnel was into Meatless Mondays long before Mario Batali and others shoved this notion onto the mainstream consciousness. Hooray and pass the kale chips! (You’ll find a recipe for those crunchy green gems in her first cookbook.)

Kim’s latest, The Meat Lover’s Meatless Celebrations: Year-Round Vegetarian Feasts (You Can Really Sink Your Teeth Into), drops tomorrow. Why not celebrate by hitting one of the author’s favorite restaurants to mark Meatless Mondays in Seattle?
