Naturally Fermented Sauerkraut

Eat sauerkraut or kimchi straight out of the carton and piled on top of hot, fragrant brown rice so you don’t destroy the probiotics of the fermented foods by cooking them.



From: Rodale’s Naturally Great Foods Cookbook by Nancy Albright

1 1-lb. can sauerkraut, chilled (fresh, non-pasteurized sauerkraut is best)

1 cup grated carrots                                                  1 medium-sized onion, chopped

2 medium-sized apples, chopped                                  6 large ripe olives, pitted and sliced

2 Tbsp vinegar                                                         1 Tbsp horseradish

3 Tbsp oil                                                                crisp lettuce greens


Toss ingredients together with two forks until well mixed. Chill. Serve on crisp greens.

Heat a large skillet or wok. Add sesame seeds, tossing until they begin to pop and turn golden brown. Remove at once and set aside.
