We love cultured veggies for a variety of reasons. One: they are a great way to consume more nutrient rich vegetables, especially the tougher cruciferous ones, during the winter months when the availability of fresh produce might be lacking. Two: the process of fermentation softens the texture for easier chewing, no cooking required! Three: probiotic bacteria is so important for our overall immune system and digestive health, and cultured veggies prove to be a delicious way of consuming them! Three: you can make a huge batch of kimchi for just a few dollars!
