Cultured vegetables can be eaten with any meal and are seriously good for you.

Vegetables – I used cabbageboth red and green, cauliflower, ginger, coriander, mint, carrot, celery, zucchini. You could add a green apple, fennel, parsley, garlic (if you are game for the smell and the taste), basil and daikon (white radish). You will need enough to make a 2 litre mason jar of vegetables.
Approximately 1/2 head of red and green cabbage1 carrot, 1 zucchini, 1 rib of celery, 1/4 head of cauliflower, 4cm of ginger and 3 stalks each of mint and coriander.
Culture – I use the BED Vegetable Starter Culture. You can buy other cultures from health food shops that will probably do the same thing.
1/2teaspoonsugar or honeyto help activate the starter
1x 2 litre mason jar
1/2cupof filtered water plus more as needed
Bring 1/2 cup of filtered water to the temperature of 90 – 92 degrees C. You can do this first by boiling the water and then letting it cool and use a thermometer to gauge the temperature.
Once water is at the right temperature, empty the sachet of culture into the water with the honey. Stir and let it sit for approximately 20 minutes.
Wash and chop all vegetables. I put mine in a food processor as I like the vegetables to be small, but you can grate or hand chop.
Remove about half of the vegetables and place into the mason jar.
Mix culture solution through the other half of vegetables in the blender. Pulse for a few seconds. It should look a bit soupy.
Empty vegetables from blender into mason jar with the other half of vegetables.
Using a wooden rolling pin or meat mallet, massage or push down vegetables so that the culture solution mixes through and more juices are released.
Top up with filtered water if needed. You will need to leave enough room for vegetables to rise so do not fill right to the top of the jar.
If vegetables won’t stay beneath water line then you can use a few rolled up cabbage leaves and push them down into the vegetables.
Put lid on and secure. Place jar on a tray and keep in a moderately warm spot.
