Nutritional values

Herbs are unique powerhouses: Valuable vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances are concentrated in abundance in a very small space in these tasty plants. If you add eggs, yoghurt and potatoes to your plate, your body can make perfect use of the protein and gets everything it needs.

Parsley, chervil, borage, pimpinelle, cress, chives and sorrel: these seven belong in the traditional Frankfurt Green Sauce also known as "Grie Sauce". But some people like the sauce better if it also contains lovage and lemon balm. Others swear by wild herbs like dandelion, nettles or ribwort.
