Nutritional values

It does not contain meat, yet it is very satiating and provides plenty of vitamin D. This is especially important in the cold season, when our body cannot produce this vitamin itself due to lack of sunlight. It supports the absorption of calcium and thus ensures firm bones and teeth, and also has a positive effect on the immune system.

If you like, you can also prepare the cream sauce with fresh mushrooms, oyster mushrooms or herb sausages. By the way, mushrooms are almost the only "vegetable" with vitamin D.
