We have this often when I need a quick and easy dinner, and it’s so tasty! True story… I have never liked sauerkraut ever in my life, uck! Until I tried Bubbie’s brand of sauerkraut! It is crisp and zappy! I REALLY like sauerkraut now! But not just any brand, I’ve even tried other organic brands, but found them to be soggy and weak. I actually really LIKE the smell of Bubbie’s! You can find me on sauerkraut night just standing around smelling the open jar! I cannot guarantee the outcome of this recipe unless you use Bubbies! And they aren’t paying me to say that!
1 Onion, diced
1 Jar of Bubbie’s Sauerkraut
A Batch of thicker “Ranch” or other mayo condiment
1 Red Bell Pepper- sliced in strips
Spinach Leaf, Lettuce, Sprouts, or Greens of Your Choice
Optional: Meat (nitrate-free deli meat or ground meat, whatever you desire)
Saute your onions until they are soft and translucent, then turn off the heat and add sauerkraut to the same pan (1 big heap per pita that you are going to make), stir. On a preheated pan (lightly oil if needed to prevent sticking), lay a tortilla, then top with some of your onion/ sauerkraut mixture, some slices of red bell pepper, and add your cooked meat here also if using meat. Let warm for a few minutes until tortilla is golden brown. Remove from heat and spread “Ranch” or mayo, flax seed like always, and greens. Fold up like a half moon (pita-like) and enjoy!
I’ve also tried these with fresh cilantro when I was really craving cilantro and it was great too!
This is a flexible recipe, add whatever you like. You can grill the red peppers if you don’t like them raw (although, I LOVE them raw)!
