Nutritional values

This cool summery snack is just the thing for those who spend a lot of time in the sun. Plenty of beta-carotene and lycopene from carrots and tomatoes intercept cell-damaging free radicals, which are increasingly produced under the influence of the sun.

If you are working with Agar-Agar for the first time, you may need to experiment a little: The gelling strength of the individual products varies. If you are vegan, omit the tartar sauce and add a soy-based herb dressing or a vinaigrette with finely chopped shallots, capers, and olives.
