It’s time to share probiotic dinner ideas! In the past and coming weeks, we’re going to hit every meal and then some. The goal being: to share ideas and recipes for getting probiotics with every bite (or at least every meal).
Please share your probiotic dinner ideas in the comments. Feel free to add links to blog posts, current or past. Wondering what “Probiotics: Every Meal” is all about? Read this post.
I’d like to share some of my probiotic dinner ideas. Quite a few of them center around condiments. Of course, any of the sandwiches or lunch ideas can be eaten for dinner, and we do that quite often. But, dinner dinner? Here’s what we do.
Raw Sour Cream Topping
If it was cooked, the probiotics would die. So the sour cream definitely has to be added last and not cooked.
Shredded Raw Cheese
Like the raw sour cream, I also add shredded queso fresco to dishes. This cheese ages only 3 days, is easy to make, and shreds well (unless frozen). I’m sure you know the options are endless here! Once again, can’t be cooked.
Adding a lacto-fermented chutney, relish or sauerkraut is easy. We often have sauerkraut with hamburgers.
Have oven fries with lacto-fermented ketchup.
I have a friend whose family loves “pink stuff” — guess what that is? Ketchup and mayonnaise mixed together. Someday I’ll have an opportunity to tell her how to make it probiotic.
Probiotic Potato Salad
Boy, am I glad we’re getting lots of kefir again. One of our favorite side dishes is Probiotic Potato Salad. The dressing base is kefir cheese, which is really easy to make and lends a delicious tartness to this salad. If you’re more inclined to a mild taste, use yogurt cheese or lacto-fermented mayonnaise instead. How about adding some lacto-fermented relish or pickles?
So… those are my probiotic dinner ideas. What about you? Add your ideas or link to your blog post(s) in the comments. Next Wednesday, we’ll come back to this series and hit on snacks. Please do get your ideas ready!
I’m sharing this post in Real Food Wednesday.
