Nutritional values

The whole family will enjoy the vegetarian roulades and each eater will benefit from them: for example, 70 percent of the daily requirement of vitamin C. This helps to boost the body's defences. It also helps us to better absorb the vegetable iron from the millet. This trace element is just with Vegatariern lack commodity therefore it is important to pay attention to a sufficient iron supply. Magnesium and calcium are found in 40 percent of the vegetarian cabbage rolls. The functioning of all muscles depends on their interaction.

The vegetarian roulades are also successful with savoy cabbage, which, like all types of cabbage, also contains plenty of vitamin C. However, its leaves only need 2-3 minutes, half as long, to be pre-cooked. The cabbage roulades can also be prepared vegan. To do this, replace the sheep's cheese and egg with 200 grams of a vegetable yoghurt alternative (for example soya).
