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! Learn how to make the perfect batch of delicious kimchi with Sarah Britton of My New Roots - and check out her site for trouble shooting tips in case something goes a bit array the first time you try it out.
Ever wondered if there is a way to make your own VEGAN cultured Greek style yogurt? Well the answer is yes and Priscilla Soligo of Rawthentic Food will show you how with this simple recipe! Organic plant based probiotics are added to a base of blended coconut meat. The mixture is then allowed to sit 10-12 hours at around 100 degrees F to complete the fermentation process after which a splash of lemon juice is added for extra tang. If you are in a cold climate you can simply place your bowl in a dehydrator set to 100 degrees. Remember to always use glass for your cultured foods! Serve it up with fresh berries and superfood toppings!
