Sauerkraut Avocado Maki | Feed Your Skull

It’s a gloomy fermentation Friday where I live, but rain is always good. Today I wanted to share a recipe for how to use sauerkraut by pairing our favorite ferment with my other favorite food.

Sushi. Or more appropriately termed, maki.

Maki /ˈmäkē/ • noun
a Japanese dish consisting of sushi and raw vegetables wrapped in seaweed.

Since I love the combo of avocado and sauerkraut [proof] and I love avocado maki…why not put them all in a delicious pickled roll?? I added a little cilantro because as well as a little miso at the start of the roll. It’s optional, but ups the savory umami flavor.

Use regular rice or Instant Pot sushi rice for the base. I usually aim for 1/3-1/2 cup per roll.

What type of sauerkraut do I recommend?? Well all of them tbh.

Salsa Sauerkraut

Salsa sauerkraut would be amazing.

Lemongrass & Kaffir Lime sauerkraut wouldn’t get Joffrey’d.

Making Raw Fermented Sauerkraut

My favorite though is my very first batch which I recently remade, a combination of cabbage, ginger, garlic, onion, and cayenne. *kisses fingers

But seriously, any will do.


I love to sprinkle a little bit a lot of toasted sesame seeds over everything. It puts me in heaven.

Time to get rollin’

    I’m always in the mood for sushi! You could stuff them with pretty much anything and I’d happily gobble them down, but the combination of briny sauerkraut and creamy avocado sounds particularly delicious.

    I lost a recipe . Here is what I recall: Trail mix, pumpkin seeds, red cayenne pepper, miso, paper, and I swear it was on a sauerkraut page. Can you help? Thanks!
