Nutritional values

Your immune system will be pleased about the richly contained trace element zinc in this recipe! Women who take the pill and asthmatics who need regular cortisone preparations have an increased need for zinc. The generously supplied roughage makes everyone feel full; proteins from beans and meat, vitamins and minerals maintain the well-being.

If your greengrocer doesn't have snake beans in stock, just use string beans. They also contain a lot of healthy vegetable protein.
