Cultured foods have been an integral part of the healthiest diets for thousands of years and are essential to a long, healthy life. They give birth to a lavish inner ecosystem, building resistance to infections, and greatly enhancing digestion. They are ideal for appetite and weight control, very alkaline and cleansing to the blood.

How to Make Cultured Vegetables

Part 1Part 2Part 3

Veggie Culture Starter is ideal for pregnant women, ensuring a healthy birth canal for her newborn child who will rely on her to provide healthy bacteria. Children with autism and ADD benefit from the culture as well. Cultured vegetables help take away cravings for sweets, soft drinks, bread, pasta, dairy, fruit and other expansive foods not allowed on the diet.

Research suggests that Lactobacillus plantarum has an ability to reverse gut disbyosis, like IBS, Crohn's Disease and Colitis.

Cultured Vegetable Starter contains the following beneficial bacteria:

  • Lactobacillus plantarum
  • Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis
  • Lactococcus lactis ssp. cremoris
  • Lactococcus lactis ssp. diacetylactis
  • Leuconostoc mesenteroides ssp. cremoris
  • Lactobacillus kefyr
  • Non-GMO dextrose as a carrier (consumed during fermentation)

Each box contains 6 packets which can be used to make cultured vegetables, cultured whipped butter, and creme fraiche.

An Easy Beginner's Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 heads green cabbage, shredded in a food processor
  • Several cabbage leaves
  • 6 carrots, large shredded in a food processor
  • 3-inch piece ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 packet of Body Ecology® Veggie Culture Starter
  • ½ cup warm (90°) water

Instructions:

  1. Dissolve Veggie Culture Starter with warm water. Add some form of sugar to feed the starter (try Rapadura, Sucanat, honey, Agave, or EcoBloom). Let the starter/sugar mixture sit for about 20 minutes or longer while the L. Plantarum and other bacteria wake up and begin enjoying the sugar. Put aside.
  2. Combine shredded cabbage, carrots, ginger, and garlic in a large bowl.
  3. Remove several cups of this mixture and put into a blender.
  4. Add enough filtered water to make a “brine” the consistency of thick juice. Add culture starter mixture from step 1. Blend well and then add brine back into first mixture. Stir well.
  5. Pack mixture down into a glass or stainless steel container. Use your fist, a wooden dowel, or a potato masher to pack veggies tightly.
  6. Fill container almost full, but leave about 2 inches of room at the top for veggies to expand.
  7. Roll up several cabbage leaves into a tight “log” and place them on top to fill the remaining 2-inch space. Clamp jar closed.
  8. Let veggies sit at about a 70° room temperature for at least 3 days. A week is even better. Refrigerate to slow down fermentation. Enjoy!

This makes delicious & nutritious fermented foods. Fermented foods have given me & my daughter our health back, and we are very thankful for them. We use them daily. It is also perfect to make recipes such as the ones in the BED DVD In the Kitchen, 32 easy to follow videos.
