Nutritional values

Here, lots of vegetables provide plenty of fibre and vitamins: For example, one portion easily covers twice the daily requirement of vitamin A, which is responsible for a good "overview". B vitamins and protein from legs and mushrooms make muscles, nerves and grey cells fit.

If you use young potatoes for the dish, you only need to brush them thoroughly under running water. This not only saves work, but above all preserves the numerous nutrients that are directly under the skin.
