I finally realized I like sauerkraut. And I have been reading all of these good things like <a href="http://www.healthscout.com/static/news/509840.html" target="_blank">http://www.healthscout.com/static/news/509840.html</a> it prevents cancer, and contains active cultures.<br><br><br><br>
Does anyone have experience making anything with it. I made some soy sausage with it, that was all I could think of.<br><br>
Thanks

I love it on a soy burger or veggie dog, along with a sauce made from Nayonnaise & bbq sauce. That's the only way I'll eat it, but it's yummmmmy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

This is a really old thread, but I'm going to try to revive it.<br><br>
I tried saurkraut for the first time in my life yesterday because I bought a jar at Whole Foods. I ate some plain, then had some on a veggie dog which was just okay. Apart from buying Tofurkey brats and eating it with them, what else can I do with saurkraut?

I like sauerkraut on baked potatoes or mixed in with fried potatoes or with potato pancakes.<br><br><br><br>
I also really like tempeh reubens make with vegan 1000 island dressing, sauerkraut and sometimes soy cheese.

The traditional Dutch way is to mix it through mashed potatoes. You boi the sauerkraut on top of the potatoes, and then mash them when ready.<br><br><br><br>
It is also very good if you add apple or pineapple in the mix.

I'm crazy about Croatian-style sauerkraut. Reddish-gold shreds of onion-garlic-paprika flavored kraut that have transformed from harshly tart to mild & mellow. It's a great side dish with veggie sausage and/or any type of potatoes, or I could just enjoy it plain, or even scooped up with fresh or toasted bread.<br><br><br><br>
In a couple tablespoons of fat (oil), sauté:<br><br><br><br>
1 chopped onion<br><br>
3 chopped garlic cloves<br><br>
1 or 2 teaspoons paprika<br><br><br><br>
When the oil is nicely colored and the onion & garlic are soft, add 1 or 2 pounds of sauerkraut. Let simmer about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Serve warm.

I love sauerkraut! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"> While I haven't tried the salad recipes below, they sound pretty good.

Mmm carnelian, the second recipe looks good!</div>

It does sound good, doesn't it? However, the recipe calls for canned sauerkraut, which I would avoid, as canned sauerkraut tastes like a can IMO. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> I would stick with purchasing it from a jar. You can also sometimes find it in a heavy plastic bag in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.

Yum, I love sauerkraut! I eat on top of veggie soup, on top of/in sandwiches, in pita sandwiches, in veggie scramble, with potato pancakes, on top of salad, with potato pierogies, with potatoes, with a spoon, etc. There's lots of things you can eat it with, be creative. I get it in a glass jar from a nearby polish market.

When my parents make reubens, i'll eat a tiny bit of sauerkraut plain. Its good for a little bit then the taste is sort of overwhelming.

I eat it on tempeh rubens and on the side with veg sausages.<br><br><br><br>
I also love it on pizza (in small amounts, chopped). Try it.

reubens, but I've never had a vegetarian or vegan version. I'm sure it's possible though.</div>

Funny. You should really try one! I've had tempeh reubens (from restaurants and made my own) but have never had a meat reuben- and I ate meat for 15 years of my life! They're really great. I usually just slice some tempeh into strips, fry them in a little bit of oil until golden brown on both sides, make some 'thousand island dressing' from veganaise, ketchup, and a minced pickle, and then make a sandwich out of it- stacking the tempeh onto a slice of rye bread (or whatever other kind of bread you have if you don't want to buy rye), layering on the saurkraut, a slice of swiss cheese (if you so choose), and then putting the dressing onto the other slice of bread before topping your sandwich with that other slice of bread. Grill it, and enjoy.<br><br>
They're really easy to make.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

I have an ex-boyfriend who used to order pepperoni and saurkraut pizzas. I always thought that it looked... interesting. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Mmm... I love sauerkraut! My grandma used to make it in her cellar (I don't know if she still does). I just like eating it plain! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> I've tried eating it on a veggie dog, and it's pretty good... it sorta replaces relish, only a little more... sauerkrauty (if that's even a word at all)!

Am I the only one who will cook up saurkraut and eat it alone out of a cup? Though I always thought cooking with with any sort of meat ruined the flavor.
