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!

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.

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.”
