Tip of Stefano:

Grandma’s potato soup, a healthy soup that’s full of flavour

In this modern version of authentic grandma’s potato soup – which might once have been eaten with smoked sausage – we use seitan, marinated in liquid smoke for that delicious smoky flavour. It’s a mouth-watering recipe that is ready in less than 45 minutes – in such a short time you can sit down to a lovely potato soup meal, deliciously spiced! The seitan fried in red palm oil spices up the soup just that little bit more and is also a complete taste sensation.

Who is Stefano Vicinoadio? Here at Bertyn we got to know him at an organic fair in Germany. We immediately hit it off and it turned into a great working relationship. Stefano is actually a photographer, and it is his passion. But his love for cooking has resulted in the most delicious recipes... together with great photos.

Stefano describes himself as colourful, loud, a vegan, a friend, a discoverer, a digital nomad and straightforward. Stefano changed tack and started to eat and live a healthy vegan lifestyle His life took a wholly different course when he became very ill. At the age of 33 he was going with all guns blazing, but he didn't spare a thought for his own health - he smoked, drank a lot, worked up to 16 hours a day and drank around two litres of coffee daily. Then he developed two serious hernias, as well as being very overweight. He realised that he could not continue this way and decided on a complete turnaround. He quit drinking and smoking and slowly changed his diet, until he finally went almost completely vegan. Vegan, a step further than vegetarian Stefano's recipes are all vegan. A vegan eats no animal products whatsoever, taking it a step beyond vegetarianism. Vegans don't eat eggs, dairy products or honey. These recipes by Stefano will prove to you that there's still a great deal left to work with. See the recipes and try them out for yourself!

Bertyn seitan-lover

“We heard all about it from our Belgian staff: Bertyn’s seitan is delicious, they told us. And it is true: it’s extraordinarily tasty, authentic seitan – and it’s also completely organic.”

“A large number of Bertyn’s products are not made from wheat, but from spelt – and not just any spelt, but Oberkülmer Rotkorn original spelt. The seitan made from wheat is also made from an original variety – Manitoba original wheat. This means it’s an authentic seitan, traditionally made from original grains with a traditional fermented soya sauce. We already love it!”

“Bertyn seitan has an excellent texture and is not rubbery at all – which is sometimes what you get from other seitan-makers.”
