Polish Bean and Sauerkraut Soup

Polish Bean and Sauerkraut Soup
In This Article

This hearty vegetable soup, known properly as Kapusniak, may sound odd, but it’s a delicious bean soup and a great way to get fermented food into your diet for gut health. Don’t worry, it doesn’t taste overly sauerkraut-y, just hearty and filling. Make sure to buy fresh (not canned) sauerkraut to get the beneficial live cultures. Probiotic cultures are destroyed at around 115°F (47°C), so add the sauerkraut at the end of cooking and be sure not to simmer or boil.

RD Tip

Sauerkraut provides probiotics, the healthy bacteria that live in your gut, while the beans provide prebiotics, which are foods high in fiber that feed the bacteria in your gut. Both are critical for optimal gut health.
