Krazy Kraut Avocado Sauerkraut Nori Rolls (Watch the video!)

Ingredients:
Avocado, thinly sliced
Any Krazy Kraut fermented kraut (we find that Krazy Kim Chee works best)
Cucumber (cut into thin strips)
Carrots (cut into thin strips)
Daikon radish (cut into thin strips)
Tempeh (cut into thin strips)
Ginger and garlic (cut into thin matchsticks)
Mixed greens, and/or fresh sprouts (optional)
Umeboshi Plum Paste (optional, deliciously sour)
Wasabi Paste (optional, super spicyy/decongesting)
Nori sheets

Directions:
1.Have a nori sheet in front of you, shiny side down, with the lines running horizontally.

2. Place layers of ingredients, starting with the sliced avocado near the bottom of the nori sheets (you could also mash the avocado and spread it on. Leftover guacamole works great for this!)

3. Add kraut layer and then greens, sprouts, cucumber, carrots, daikon, tempeh, ginger, garlic, and a small amount of the Umeboshi paste and wasabi paste spread on the nori.

4. Starting at the bottom, roll everything in the nori tightly to create a firm roll. Bamboo Nori mats help with this (available at Asian groceries). Dab a little water or tamari on the top to help the nori stick and form a roll. This step takes practice, so you may want to watch videos online.

5.Slice crosswise into six pieces with a very sharp knife (dipped in water to reduce friction).

Simple Summer/Cold (or Winter/Warm) Probiotic Potato Salad

Ingredients:
3-5 pounds organic Local Potatoes (Red Pontiacs work best, Sweet Potatoes also very good)

1 cup organic live culture yoghurt
1 pint live culture Krazy Kraut (Krazy Kurry or Juniper Caraway are my favs, any variety works)

Preparation:

Cube potatoes into half inch cubes, leave peels on, that’s where the vitamins are(!) (greening of skins can be avoided by storing potatoes in the dark). Place potatoes in boiling water until just barely done where a fork easily slides through but stil slightly firm, not yet well-done/”soggy”.

Immediately strain and run under cold water, until cooled to room temp ( or for a “warm” potato salad until a thermometer reads less than 113 degrees when inserted) Mix sour cream, yoghurt, and 1/2 to an entire pint of any Krazy Kraut in large bowl. Add potatoes and gently fold until mixed together. Eat and enjoy all the probiotic microbes!!
