[PDX Eats] Plant-Based Snacks & Treats at Tiny Moreso

You may remember the time that Jenn invited me into the Rawdacious Kitchen for a sneak peek at how she makes her amazing  vegan cheesecakes. Three years later she has moved out of her tiny basement commercial kitchen and into a beautiful, bright space that not only is home to Rawdacious Desserts but also Tiny Moreso, a plant-based cafe.

Tiny Moreso serves up Rawdacious Desserts which has expanded from vegan cheesecakes to a variety of sweets including some amazing truffles. Tiny Moreso is also serving up a menu filled with toasts, smoothies, juices, salads, sandwiches and snacks. 

On this trip we were feeling particularly hungry and ordered a spread of food and drinks. Everything was of course delicious. Favorites for us included the purple potato salad which was a special the day we visited, the Eleanor smoothie and the kids were in love with the avocado toast.

It’s Portland Veg Week 2017 + VegFest!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…It’s time for Portland VegFest!
We have been every year since we moved here back in 2013 and we always have a blast listening to speakers and trying as many samples as our stomachs will allow. However, I think that this year might just be the best one yet. The line up of speakers this year is one of the best with Jenny Brown Co-Founder of the Woodstock Farm Sanctuary, Scott Jurek an incredible ultrarunner and author of Eat and Run and Genesis Butler who is an inspiring 10 year old activist and even has her own TED Talk.  
The full lineup is here: https://nwveg.org/vegfest-program-2017.

VegFest 2017

Of course one of the best things about VegFest is trying all the vegan food options that are out there. I love having the opportunity to find new foods and to sample ones that I have been curious before I buy them – also many of these vendors have special pricing for VegFest so bring your cash. Some of the vendors I’m excited about include LightLife, Miyoko’s, NU Culture, and Toby’s/Genesis

PDX Events | 2016 Oregon Fermentation Festival


Pickles, kombucha, kraut, kimchi, miso….fermented goodies. All the amazing goodies we got to taste at the Oregon Fermentation Festival this past weekend. 


Our house is one that is constantly stocked with delicious krauts and kombuchas and we often have something fermenting (some more successful than others). What can I saw we love fermented foods so when we found out about the Oregon Fermentation Festival we marked our calendars and purchased our tickets and prepared for an afternoon of funky foods. 



We sampled some of our favorites like Kevita, Health-ade and OlyKraut. We also tried some new (to us) places such as Rawkstar Creations which not only has really great kombucha but an AAAAAMAZING raw BLT. 2016-09-10-oregon-fermentation-festival-7


We dined on popsicles and the most delicious miso-lemon corn from Obon PDX. We loved it so much we shared 4 ears. 2016-09-10-oregon-fermentation-festival-15

We even got to make a jar of pickled cucumbers and green beans! Which the kids thought was pretty amazing. 2016-09-10-oregon-fermentation-festival-22

Overall we loved the festival and the kids couldn’t get enough kombucha so of course we ended up going home with a box of different varieties.

So fermented foods and beverages- love or hate? What are you favorites?
