Nutritional values

Everything is just right here: a lot of high-quality protein, little fat, one third of the daily requirement of fibre and in addition the entire daily requirement of iodine. This trace element is indispensable for the formation of the important thyroid hormones.

If you like it hotter, you can replace the ketchup with sweet chilli sauce or cook 1 finely chopped chilli pepper with it.
