Nutritional values

Green beans are rich in protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals. They are filling for a long time, stimulate digestion and protect the blood vessels. The topping made from crumbs and hazelnuts provides additional valuable fatty acids and vitamin E.

Eat potatoes with bean vegetables. The tubers contain many complex carbohydrates, as well as plenty of vitamin C and potassium. It is best to cook them in their skin so that no nutrients are washed out into the cooking water.
