Nutritional values

This special-occasion, elegant roast not only tastes delicious, but is incredibely healthy. The braised veal is lean and rich in protein, which can help lower elevated cholesterol levels, and protect the heart and blood vessels.

Sprinkle the vegetables with chopped parsley before serving. This herb is rich in vitamin C and thus promotes the absorption of iron from the meat, which is important for blood formation.
