Nutritional values

A low-calorie main course that covers the vitamin C requirement thanks to peppers and potatoes in one serving. The water-soluble vitamin is involved in regulating the oxygen supply to the cells and is needed for collagen production, keeping skin and gums healthy. In addition, olive oil provides the monounsaturated fatty acids that are good for our heart.

Instead of wine you can use more vegetable stock. And if the sheep's cheese is too salty for you: put it in a bowl of water for a few hours to reduce the salt content.
