Choose a pale sauerkraut for this recipe, if you have one. One made from white and green cabbage, with maybe a little carrot, is ideal. However, if you don’t mind a pink mayo, just use your normal red cabbage one. This is useful for vegans and vegetarians who need to follow a fermenting gut diet.

Next time you make some cashew cheese, (recipe HERE) use a kilo of organic cashews. Mix half of it with the cucumber and chopped mint as described. Use half of the flavoured cheese for a creamy pate to serve with a fresh green salad.

In the colder weather, add dried fruit before soaking (chopped apricots, or dates or a few raisins). You could warm this gently in the oven if you wish, before grating an apple on top just before serving.
