Tip of Stefano:

Green beans, fresh and crunchy, healthy and packed with vitamins

Green beans, also known as string beans, are the best-known of the bean family. They’re perfect for a mid-week meal, weekend dinner or even as a snack. In this recipe we will be using green beans to make a soup. It’s delicious and healthy too, and will certainly fulfil your daily recommended intake of vegetables!

Why are green beans so healthy?

Green beans are very healthy, as the phytonutrients are evenly distributed in the bean and the green beans are crammed with a variety of nutrients and many vitamins. A 100 g of green beans is equal to around 20% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C. Moreover beans also contain a lot of fibre, some protein and the amino acid, tryptophan. So this soup is something you simply have to make!

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.
