Nutritional values

Soy cream as an alternative to the classic cream makes the potato gratin low in cholesterol and provides healthy unsaturated fatty acids. In addition, it contains protein that is easily digestible by our body. We need this nutrient to maintain and build muscles and as a building material for body cells. Potatoes are valuable all round: with a low calorie count, they contain complex carbohydrates that saturate us. Who would have thought that potatoes contain as much vitamin C as an apple?

If you do not get soy cream, you can also mix 250 ml of cooking cream with 125 ml of vegetable stock or milk. The question often arises as to which potatoes should be used - mainly waxy potatoes, which retain their shape during baking and are ideal for slicing and dicing when raw.
