Nutritional values

Filled potatoes with minced meat and nuts provide a particularly thick portion of protein. And because the potatoes are cooked with their skins on and peeled later, they provide around 40 percent more potassium and vitamin C.

For a vegetarian version of the stuffed potato, simply replace the minced meat with soya meat! Serve a green salad with yoghurt dressing with the stuffed potatoes if desired.
