We’re glad to hear we aren’t the only ones who put sauerkraut on everything! It makes the perfect topping, side dish, or condiment. We are constantly finding new and creative ways to incorporate naturally fermented sauerkraut into dishes and thanks to our fans on Instagram, we have been blown away by your ideas! If you’re looking for some meal inspiration, start following Bubbie @BubbiesPickles.
Yesterday we created a Buddha bowl-inspired lunch, topped off with a mound of kraut and it was too delicious and beautiful not to share! These bowls are so easy to create because there are no rules. (Some say no meat or dairy, but we think you should do what tastes good to you!)
The best bowl-style meals have some kind of protein-rich grain like quinoa. Choose a few vegetables you like as well. We shredded purple cabbage, tossed it in olive oil and a splash of apple cider vinegar. We also flash roasted broccoli, tossed in olive oil and Barahat seasoning ( a blend of coriander, cinnamon, cloves, cumin, cardamon, nutmeg, paprika). We also tossed some chickpeas in oil and Barahat seasoning and roasted them as well. Cherry tomatoes were sliced, and we cooked some ground lamb to tie in the Indian spices. Once you’ve prepared all the ingredients, you can start assembling your bowl the way you like it! The best part about cooking this way is that if you prepare lots of options, your family/guests can custom make their bowl to their liking.
There is something so delicious about the combination of fresh cabbage and sauerkraut! The crunch and the flavor! Since most of the ingredients of our bowls were individually flavored, we did not use a dressing, bust most “Buddha Bowls” have dressings. For a flavorful dressing that you can make using kraut and left over brine, try this recipe!
