Just the other day I’ve got a sweet comment from Beatriz on this post I shared a short while ago about how to make fermented red cabbage. She told me that she has made the fermented red cabbage but would also like to know other ways to eat it. So I suggested a couple of favorites; this Vietnamese-style sandwich that I love and these vegetarian tacos. They're are both great to add some fermented red cabbage (particularly the Vietnamese sandwich).
But then I thought it would also be a good idea to share with all of you more about other ways on how you can incorporate or add fermented vegetables into your meals.
When making fermented vegetables, you are always making natural probiotics (and you can listen or read more about the process over here in this post). The natural probiotics produced in fermented vegetables are fabulously-good to strengthen our digestive system, detoxify, boost immunity in our body (it contains lots of vitamin c) and incredibly helpful for sugar cravings! So if you’re trying to stop sugar cravings try making some fermented cabbage and add it to your meals. Amazing right?!
Now, there are a few ways you can eat 'sauerkraut' and below I made a list suggesting a few recipes and funky ideas on how you can take advantage of this amazing + potent health-friendly + budget-friendly food!
Thank you to Beatriz, such a sweet reader to came out with this question!
As always love hearing from all of you! Let me know what's your favorite way to eat fermented vegetables?
