Tip of Stefano:

The blue potato: a tasty and colorful potato variety, ten times more powerful than vitamin C

The blue potato is mostly still unknown in our kitchen, yet it is one to remember. Not only very tasty, it is very good for your health. Opposite the ‘ regular ‘ potato, this one has some extra features. Even if this blue potato is a bit more difficult to obtain as well as somewhat more expensive. The most known variety of the blue potato is the French Vitelotte, or truffle potato.

The blue potato; anti-hypertension. Full of anthocyanins.

If you eat blue potatoes on a regular basis, you can lower your blood pressure and even lose a bit of overweight. How come? Due to the secondary vegetable substances, the anthocyanins which also give the blue-purple color you also find in eggplants, red beets and black grapes. The bluer the potato, the more anthocyanins it contains. This substance is about ten times more powerful than vitamin C. Not altogether a bad idea to use it in the following recipe.

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.

“Always buy the best quality seitan. The seitan you find in your average supermarket is often very tough. Seitan should have a tender texture. Organic health stores stock delicious seitan (I don’t often like to mention a brand, but Bertyn’s seitan is excellent).” groeneprinses.be
