Krrrrisp Kraut Tastes Great and Good For You Too!
Did you know sauerkraut not only tastes great, but is good for you too? Studies have shown eating kraut has so many health benefits, like fighting cancer, preventing childhood cancer, help in lowering cholesterol, and aiding in digestion! One serving, which contains only 32 calories and fat free, has four grams of fiber, provides 102 per cent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin K, 12 per cent of iron, and 35 per cent of vitamin C. Additionally, it’s a good source of vitamin B6, folate, calcium, potassium, and copper! We enjoy sauerkraut all year round, but tend to eat more of it during the fall and winter seasons to help prevent the common cold and fight the flu.
What I really love about sauerkraut is it’s so versatile! We love it on top of hot dogs, as a side dish, on a Reuben Sandwich or just straight out of the Krrrrisp Kraut bag! But did you know it can be used as a key ingredient in delicious desserts like chocolate cake and brownies? Over the weekend I tried some of the amazing recipes from www.GLKFoods.com and made the Chocolate Kraut Cake plus Stuffed Mushroom Caps! Both came out YUMMY!
The Chocolate Kraut Cake was rich and delicious! Listen up ladies, because this is a sneaky way to get your fussy kiddo to actually eat kraut! They won’t even know it’s in there! I went straight by the recipe and didn’t change anything. The only difference I made was to add a few white and dark chocolate curls plus sprinkle decorative sugar on the top to give it a nice pretty touch. However, you can use whatever you like, such as sliced almonds, chocolate morsels, or flaked coconut.
The Stuffed Mushroom Caps recipe I changed a bit. I try and avoid pork products at all costs and used turkey bacon for the recipe instead. I also used Panko Bread Crumbs and seasoned them well with Italian seasoning, onion powder, black pepper, and organic Himalayan pink sea salt. If you plan on trying this recipe I suggest changing the cooking instructions by baking for a few minutes until the mushrooms get tender and then broil the tops. Otherwise, the tops brown too fast before the mushrooms get soft and juicy. The revised recipe was a huge hit in my house and I plan on making the Stuffed Mushroom Caps for the holidays. Give the recipe a try and let me know what you think!
