Lacto-fermented Green Bean Soup


Here is a great way to use your lacto-fermented green beans! This soup is cooked only until the green beans are added so to help preserve the live beneficial enzymes in the lacto-fermented vegetables. It is simple and requires very few ingredients. It is also a healthy and enjoyable way to get your family loving cultured foods.


  • 1 onion, chopped fine
  • 4 potatoes, diced
  • 1 quart unchlorinated water
  • 1 quart lacto-fermented green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons cold-pressed oil
  • Sea salt


  1. Lightly wipe a tiny bit of oil over the bottom of a small stockpot and heat over medium heat.
  2. Brown the onion lightly, then add the diced potatoes and the water. Cover and bring to a rolling boil.
  3. When the potatoes are cooked, turn off the heat. Let the soup cool a bit, then add the green beans and cover but do not cook.
  4. Once the green beans have been warmed by the surrounding stock, add the oil and a little bit of salt to taste.

Serve immediately.
