Nutritional values

The vegetarian vegetables provide the body with an optimal supply of fibre, vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances: the peppers contain luteolin and apigenin. These two flavones not only have an antioxidant effect, but can also inhibit inflammation.

For a special taste kick you can add feta to the vegetable pan. Cheese made from sheep's milk is not only particularly aromatic, but also contributes satiating protein.
