Rainbow Layered Kraut
Need to meal prep? Try Bastyr's Nutrition Department's Rainbow Layered Sauerkraut to add to any salad, sandwich, taco, or eat by itself!
In separate bowls, add ¼ teaspoon salt over each vegetable. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. Massage each vegetable separately in their bowls, until softened and enough brine is released.
In a sterilized jar, start layering the massaged vegetables following a rainbow color order, adding a clove of garlic, a bay leaf, some coriander seeds and peppercorn in between each addition. Press the layers down firmly, so the all the vegetables are covered in brine.
Place a weight on top of the jar and cover with a clean cloth. Place jar on a ventilated, dark place for 3 to 4 days. Taste your kraut after that to see if it’s done. If you prefer it to be more fermented, leave for another day and taste again. If you are happy with the result, remove the weight and close with a tight lid. Refrigerate the rainbow layered kraut for up to a month!
