Nutritional values

The low-carbohydrate carrot-cheese combination shows that unusual taste compositions do not only pay off on the palate. The orange-coloured root vegetable contributes a valuable vitamin A precursor with cell-protecting carotenoids, and the cheese contains bone-strengthening calcium.

If you prefer less intense tasting cheeses, try the recipe with fresh goat's cheese or low-fat cottage cheese.
