portland, or : blossoming lotus.

aaaah, vegan brunch. can be so repetitive. listen, love me some avocado toast. but sometimes, come on. anyway, in portland ... vegan mecca ... i knew i had to get good brunch at some point.

so before we went out on a little late morning explore of washington park, we stopped for some nomz at blossoming lotus.

blossoming lotus came to us as another recommend from chicago vegan / rd, taylor. so we knew already it would be awesome. then i did a little reading ... "blossoming lotus serves organic, freshly made, vegan world cuisine with delicious cooked & live food options." gimmegimmegimme.

all vegan places mean josh is forced to share all the things with me. here's what we had ...

freshly made juice ... boost :
carrot, grapefruit & ginger.
always down for fresh juice. 

lotus benedict :
biscuit topped w/ tofu scramble, sausage, tomato, spinach & lemon hollandaise with garlic roasted potatoes & steamed kale. 
i'm not sure i ever had non-vegan benedict ... so i don't know how it would compare ... but this version was awesome. also great, the plethora of kale on the plate. #kaledit.

breakfast burrito :
tofu scramble, roasted potatoes, kale, tomato, red onion, pecan chorizo & cashew sour cream in a whole wheat tortilla. 
a breakfast burrito is more of josh's jam ... but i was fully on board. with a little hot sauce ... damn, it was perfection. 

blossoming lotus is real, legit brunch. UGH. portland, why is your food so good?!?!
