What is so good about this recipe?

Cauliflower, Potato and Nutritional Yeast are great sources of B vitamins!

Peas, Green, Beans, Broccoli and Parsley are rich in Vitamin C, K, Calcium and Iron to name a few.

Many free from margarines and milks contain added nutrients such as vitamin D, vitamin B12 and Calcium.
