Nutritional values

Protein and calcium-supplying dairy products are not visible at first glance - they hide in the casserole. Even the small grains inside are rich in protein and also have a high density of minerals. And the fruits in the salad contribute a lot of vitamin C.

A potpourri of berry fruits, a pure cherry compote or a yellow-orange composition of pineapple and mango also tastes very good with the casserole. The fruit is always cheapest when it is in season.
