Klum touts sauerkraut soup on "Tyra"

  TWIG - Supermodel Heidi Klum is once again touting the epicurean pleasures of her homeland. In an interview with model-turned-talk show host Tyra Banks of the "Tyra Banks Show," Klum offered audience members the recipe for her grandmother’s sauerkraut soup.

"It looks kind of nasty, but it tastes delicious!" Klum told Banks.

A native of the tiny northern German town of Bergisch-Gladbach, Klum is famous for her television reality show "Project Runway" as well as her work as a model for Victoria’s Secret and a spokesperson for the 2006 soccer World Cup in Germany.

Klum was also in the headlines for giving birth to her second child and appearing on the runway in New York just six weeks later.

Her grandmother’s sauerkraut soup, she says, is a family secret — and her favorite food. The recipe calls for three cans of sauerkraut, pork or beef, onions, mushrooms, ketchup, vegetable bullion and other ingredients to taste.

The recipe is also available on the website for the Tyra Banks show.

Sauerkraut has experienced something of a comeback in recent years as U.S. top chefs find ever more creative ways to incorporate the tangy cabbage into gourmet meals.

Nutritionists laud it as a health food and an excellent source of both Vitamin C and the lactobacilli bacteria found in yogurts. Sauerkraut has long been a staple of cuisine in northern European climes.
