NUTRITIONAL NUGGET – G is for Gruyere cheese 🧀

 

Did you know that when you compare it to Cheddar, you find that weight for weight, it has more protein and about half the amount of sodium (salt)? If you’re watching your weight, grate it so it goes further, or mix it with a lower fat cheese like mozzarella.

 

Here are 3 ways to enjoy Gruyere:

 

1. Instant cheese on toast. Using a potato peeler, make shavings of Gruyere and flavour with black pepper or dried chilli flakes. Sprinkle the cheese over whole grain toast and pop under the grill for a few mins until golden.

 

2. Gruyere tomato crisps. Sauté sliced tomatoes and spring onions in a little olive oil. Move them to the sides of the frying pan and add grated Gruyere. Allow it to melt and become crisp, and serve this on top of the tomato slices.

 

3. Quick & easy cheesy courgetti. Flavour courgette ribbons with garlic and olive oil, and stir-fry till lightly cooked. Top with grated Gruyere and toasted pine nuts.
