Tip of Serge:

A Greek tomato soup made with Greek yoghurt and seitan mince balls: creamy, fresh and brimming over with flavour

It’s not uncommon for us to be inspired by the Mediterranean region, from Spaghetti Seitanese to raw gazpacho. In this recipe Greece serves as the culinary inspiration. Greece has much to offer and it is the origin of so many delicious treats. Here at Bertyn we love to use Greek Ingredients, and for this soup we use Greek yoghurt to make it beautifully creamy and fresh. The flavour of this soup is truly unsurpassed, and it’s so easy to make.

What fans say about Bertyn

“Even if we never manage to convert the world to the vast majority of meat replacements, one product remains decidedly hopeful: the Manitoba wheat and soy sauce-based, traditionally produced seitan manufactured by Bertyn. It brings together the two qualities required if you justifiably want to call a product a ‘meat replacement’: it is pure and natural and very tasty. It is on sale in health food shops, vacuum packed as seitan steak, seitan supreme or in ‘block form’. It is easy to prepare: the seitan is baked, steamed or cooked in a flash because it never requires lengthy cooking times. So from now on no restaurant has a valid excuse for not putting such a vegetarian dish on the menu.”
