Fermented Warm Grain Bowl

Fermented Warm Grain Bowl

Using a heat-and-serve package of mixed ancient grains makes this warm, hearty bowl a cinch to put together on a busy weeknight. Look for fermented sauerkraut in the refrigerator section that has live, raw probiotics. Many new flavors are readily available, such as beet and carrot.
