Nutritional values

The Chinese cabbage not only gives it a bite and an exotic touch. Together with the cashew nuts, it also contributes significantly to the high, gently draining potassium content. The pungency of sambal oelek and ginger stimulates the metabolism.

And what's there? Rice is best, of course - and best of all, natural rice. Since brown rice is not husked, the silver skin and germ remains intact. This provides extra vitamins, minerals and fibre.
