Soya cream ensures the beautiful creamy consistency of the sauce here - and brings two advantages at once: It has only half as much fat as whipped cream and contains no cholesterol. The spicy blue cheese provides a thick portion of bone-strengthening calcium.

Not everyone tolerates pink pepper berries well. They contain substances that can cause allergies. If you are sensitive to them: Just replace it with green pepper!
