Would you consider sauerkraut to be a green vegetable?


Recommended Posts



Cabbage is green but turns white in the fermenting process.  Technically no but could be.  Flip a coin...

Since you are into the sauerkraut try the German/Dutch rootcole.  It’s a type of sauerkraut  that’s deep red and has a distinct flavor.  Very tasty!

I'd consider it a serving of "vegetables" if planning/tracking meals.

Not the best source of traditional "veggie" nutrients but things like fermented and pickled stuff bring a separate set of nutritional benefits.

If by “white” you mean “brown”, then, yes.

I was married to a Ukrainian for 13 years. I know these things.

I mostly consider sauerkraut a fast acting laxative. :D
Same category as black beans.

 

Yeah, but you normally leave pellets all over your lawn anyway, so what’s the diff?

I'd say: Yes it's a vegetable in the same sense pickles are cucumbers.  The added vinegar etc. means veggie plus other stuff, though.

I have no expertise in nutrition and haven't studied it much, though sauerkraut was a staple of my Polish-American grandmother's cooking - her Polish parents lived in Germany before emigrating to America and both German and Polish cuisine was passed down to her children, and us, her grandchildren.

Umm by white I mean white?  Is yours brown?
