Nutritional values

In the province of Gascony, the "garbure" is traditionally served in autumn and winter. No wonder, as it is rightly considered to be extremely nutritious: cabbage, pulses and potatoes provide valuable protein, fibre, vitamins and an extra portion of iron.

If you want to save time, take white beans from the can - they are just as nutritious! And if you want to eat the soup in style, do\'s like the Gascogners: When only the aromatic broth is left in the plate, mix in half a glass of red wine and sip the mix with pleasure.
