I am new to rest api in meteorjs. I am trying to run the example explained in The meteor chef but getting this error:

Add this file to your project and then it'll work.
Here is explanation from post you linked:
Next, we try to insert a new key for our user into the APIKeys collection. Wait a minute! Where did this come from?! This collection was setup beforehand, but let’s talk about why we have a separate collection to begin with. The reason we want to separate our API key storage from the more predictable location of our user’s profile (the writable portion of a user’s record in the Meteor.users() collection) is that by default, the profile object is writable.
So you just missed this part of tutorial where they created APIKeys collection.
