Nutritional values

A hot soup in advance sometimes simply belongs to it. This vegetarian menu entry leaves plenty of room for the main course and also contains a lot of digestive fibres and cell-protecting carotenoids.

If you would like to serve the soup as a light main course, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sunflower seeds over it (roast briefly in a coated pan without fat until golden brown) and serve with fresh wholemeal baguette.
