Prasad is a vegetarian/vegan cafe on NW Davis St. in Portland, Oregon. They are located inside Yoga Pearl and serve various healthy bowls, wraps, soups, salads, smoothies, juices, and more.

I arrived for a late breakfast, ordering the Chili Scramble ($8.50): roasted garlic chili, chipotle tempeh, dark greens, spinach, avocado, pepitas (pumpkin seeds), scallions, and quinoa, served with a side of garlic tahini sauce. I also received a side of toasted gluten-free New Cascadia Teff Bread and their vegan butter.

A delicious, filling, and healthy meal here. The quinoa was cooked nicely, and the chili really partnered well with the multitude of ingredients. The pepitas brought that nutty dimension, the avocado added a creaminess to each bite. I also enjoyed the gluten-free toast. A big plus to find delicious GF meals in Portland.

I would have liked a little kick in the meal (the chipotle tempeh wasn't enough heat for me by any means), but I see that Prasad has hot sauce, a green chili sauce, and even a jalapeno cheese sauce. Prasad has an impressive menu for such a small space. Parking can be a pain (gotta pay to park), but hey, the food is healthy and delicious. It's worth checking out! 7.25/10
