Today I give an enthusiastic shoutout to Pam DuRousseau of California Girl Functional Foods, for her probiotic kraut offerings. In my opinion, her work is a community service, if not a personal service, to those of us who are not skilled enough or motivated enough to make our own probiotic fermentations.
Those of you who have been reading my posts know that I am trying recipes from The Plantpower Way and sharing my experiences here. One of the most recommended ingredients in the one bowl recipes is fermented kraut. Getting this at the grocery store is a bonus, but getting it at the farmers market…locally…is a tremendous gift. Thank you, Pam, for making it easy.
One bowls…a foundational dish of The Plantpower Way, and a recipe…of sorts…that says, “I can do this!” Think mix and match…beans, grains, greens, and various add-ons. The trump card that raises these bowls from nutrition to cuisine is the addition of one of Julie Piatt’s signature sauces. Tonight’s was “Tahini Green Sauce, ” and finished the bowls like so:
We’re fans…big time. See the book for the myriad of possibilities, but the first of our many “one bowls” included quinoa, seasoned kidney beans, broccoli, sweet potato, and farmer’s market fermented kraut (probiotics…long live the gut!). Try it! This one will be a weeknight winner.
