Nutritional values

The potatoes and fennel not only make this recipe delicious but they also contribute to the high fiber content along with the wholemeal flour. Dietary fibers allow the blood sugar level to rise more slowly. This ensures a long-lasting feeling of satiety and is particularly good for type 2 diabetics.

Cream Cheese tastes especially delicious on these savory potato buns!
