Healthy, because

Even smarter

The popular zucchini have a lot to offer in terms of health: Minerals such as potassium and magnesium are important for metabolic processes and relaxed muscles and nerves. The summer vegetables also score points with haematopoietic iron, which is needed for the transport of oxygen in the body.

If you like to have colour on your plate, you can reduce the zucchini and use carrots for it - these also bring beta-carotene for healthy eyes. The recipe is suitable as finger food at a party or as a main meal together with a colourful tomato salad. If you want to do without the finished product, you can also prepare the puff pastry yourself. However, this requires some time and skill.
