The combination of sauerkraut and quesadillas sounds a bit odd, but it totally works. The sauerkraut is added after cooking to preserve the probiotic content of this traditional food. Try different combos of cheeses and sauerkraut flavors. I put some of our favorites below.

1 tbsp grass-fed butter
2 sprouted large tortillas
1 ½ cup shredded grass-fed cheese, pepper jack or mild cheddar
1/4 cup traditional plain or caraway sauerkraut

In a cast-iron skillet over medium heat, melt butter and swirl to coat the pan. Add one tortilla and spread the cheese overtop. Add the second tortilla. Cook until underside is browned, approx 3 minutes. Flip. Cook until other side is browned, approx 2 minutes. Remove from heat, carefully peel back top layer and spread sauerkraut evenly overtop of the cheese.
