What does sauerkraut taste like?

Sauerkraut tastes similar to kimchi, except without the fiery spices. It's slightly salty and adds the perfect little crunch to complement the stuffed quinoa portobello mushrooms! However, we are finely chopping the sauerkraut in this recipe to simply add moisture and not texture.

What is different about Bubbies' Sauerkraut?

Bubbies’ Naturally-Fermented Sauerkraut is made with NO preservatives, NO added sugars, and NO Vinegar. Therefore, you aren’t going to have that sour, tangy taste in the soup like normal sauerkraut. Instead, theirs rides the fine line of subtle peppery notes with a salty aftertaste.

Why are naturally fermented foods healthy for your body?

From kefir to yogurt to sauerkraut, naturally fermented foods help feed the “good” bacteria in your stomach, which may help improve your digestion and boost your immune system.

In fact, naturally-fermented sauerkraut is rich in fiber, minerals, and vitamins. The fermentation process creates these ultra-nutritious probiotics that may help your body absorb other nutrients more easily. For example, the sauerkraut in this soup may help your body more fully absorb the nutrients in carrots (like potassium, beta carotene, and fiber) and wild rice (like vitamin A, vitamin K, and vitamin C).

Where can I find Bubbies’ Naturally-Fermented Sauerkraut?

The beautiful thing is that Bubbies' relishes, pickles, and sauerkraut can be found in most grocery stores across America! I usually buy mine at Whole Foods, but you can also find them at Publix, Harris Teeter, Fresh Market, and more. Find a location near you by clicking here.

What are carne asada tacos?

Traditional carne asada tacos are made from juicy and tender, marinated flank steak or steak steak that is topped with chopped onions, cotija cheese, avocado, and fresh cilantro. It's a common Mexican street food that's easy and cheap to make, yet SUPER flavorful with the fresh herbs and citrus juices in the marinade.

How to make the best carne asada tacos?

The ticket is the marinade. It is a step you don't want to skip. And it's where all the citrus juices, soy sauce, fresh herbs, etc. come alive. Even if you only marinate the mushrooms (or steak) for 10 minutes, just brush on the marinate later in the grilling process to add more flavorful. I would even recommend marinating up to 1 hour.
