Nutritional values

The golden-yellow beetroot rösti really have it all, despite their extremely low calorie content: in view of their high vitamin and mineral content, they are ideally suited to replenish our vital substance stores. And on top of that there is plenty of satiating fibre.

In order to preserve the sweet taste and nutrients, you should not store rutabagas in the vegetable compartment of the refrigerator for longer than about ten days. Although rutabagas can be stored for much longer, older ones taste slightly "musty" and are to blame for the disreputable reputation of this vegetable.
