Tip of Chantal:

Lentil soup is high in fibre and iron and contributes to optimum health

Did you know that lentils are the forgotten superfood?

Lentil soup is not only easy to make, it’s also great for keeping you healthy. Lentils are extremely high in magnesium, folic acid, iron and fibre. Fibre improves digestion and prevents spikes in your blood sugar levels. This means that after eating lentil soup, you’ll feel full for longer and won’t crave sugary foods.

What fans say about Bertyn

“When you cook seitan the taste depends on the spices you use, because seitan does not have much of a taste of its own. Thanks to its firm structure, seitan can be fried, roasted or barbecued, or simply on a pizza. You can find seitan in the cold section of your natural food and health food shops.”
