52 Weeks of Bad A** Bacteria – Week 30 – Lactofermented Curried Squash and Zucchini

Delicious Obsessions: Lactofermented Curried Squash and Zucchini Follow Me on Pinterest

This is a super simple ferment. Plus, summer squash and zucchini are available in abundance right now, so I’ve been enjoying them in a bunch of different ways. This recipe is one of my favorites. Make sure you use organic squash and zucchini to avoid potential GMOs.

I can’t take credit for the Indian spiced ferments. I owe that idea all to Melanie at Pickle Me Too. I had never considered adding curry powder or other Indian spices to my ferments until I made her Lactofermented Indian Spiced Cauliflower a few weeks back. That was probably my most favorite ferment to date!

You can use whatever curry powder you have, or whatever combination of Indian spices that you like. I love my homemade curry powder blend, so that is what I used in this recipe. Did I mention it’s simple?

  1. Hi Jessica,
    What a great idea to add curry to a batch of lacto-fermented veggies ! One is so used to seasoning zucchini with thyme or basil, this is a refreshing change. I’m on Gaps, and I’m sure this recipe will help me enjoy the curry taste without missing the rice
