Nutritional values

Ideal for eating out of your hand: a fibre-rich shell with a low-fat filling makes a snack that will give you the nutrients you need. The turkey filet provides plenty of protein, paprika for vitamin C and hot spices for good blood circulation.

If you do not have a steaming insert, you can also prepare the dumplings with a metal sieve: Simply place them in a sufficiently wide and high pot.
