Entrees

  • This dish is spectacularly delicious in its simplicity. Unlike most gratins, this one contains no cheese. Made with coconut milk instead of heavy cream, this dish tastes only lightly of coconut, and is rich and fulfilling without the heaviness of a cheesy gratin. Naturally sweet and smokey, with a kick of heat at the end, it's beloved by all who try it. Served with sliced grilled steak for a full meal. Vegetarians request without steak and I'll make your gratin hearty sized at no additional charge. The kale salad, ordered without tofu or chicken, makes a great accompaniment veggie to split between two people. Or order the gratin vegetarian to split as an accompaniment to the sausages!

    All options: GF, SF, B (v, DF, P (no butter/steak upon request))

  • Incredibly refreshing and energizing, there's really nothing like raw kale with a naturally sweet and tart fresh pear and lemon dressing. Topped with grilled chicken (or chickpeas upon request), toasted almonds, and pomegranate and comes with an avocado and apple for slicing. Option: order a salad and request without the chickpeas or chicken to split between two people as a delectable side salad for the sausages, the frittata, or the gratin!

    All options: GF, DF, SF, P, NF

  • This is a lovely dish - grilled mixed Olympia Provisions sausages, and hard cider-caramelized sweet, savory onions and local apples bursting with flavor. Served with a side of seedy mustard. Order with colonel's cole slaw or with a vegetarian option of the sweet potato gratin to split between two people for a delightfully flavorful, robust and nutritious meal. Vegetarians, the sausage can be omitted upon request and replaced with the delicious house smoked tofu. Dairy free and/or paleo (no butter, honey instead of sugar) available upon special request.

  • Most of us of a certain age have a fondness for the cole slaw from KFC, even if we rarely ate there, and even if we wouldn't any longer. many years ago, a dear cooking friend discovered this recipe that replicates the delicious, sweet tangy slaw that only seemed to exist in one place. Now Full Belly Fare brings it to you! With all organic, local ingredients, made fresh like all our offerings! Perfect with the sausages or the gratin.

By special request, anchovies can be omitted from the dressing. The dressing is egg free. Request dairy free as well, and I'll add avocado and cherry tomatoes and a souffle cup of toasted nutritional yeast for a cheesy but dairy free flavor, of you're gluten free, too, or dairy free croutons if dairy is all you need to avoid.

  • In Oakland, CA, there's was, until recently, an Italian deli that simply had the best sandwiches and deli salads ever. I'm not sure why nobody seems able to match it, but I've been going there for 25 years and it's truly unique. They made an artichoke frittata that's absolutely delectable, and is one thing they offered that I am able to replicate well! So, have a little taste of Genova deli frittata here in Oregon! You won't regret it! Dense with artichokes, lightly cheesy with Parmesan, delicious reheated or cold out of the fridge! This is excellent without cheese, as well, for those who are dairy free.
