Nutritional values

It is a true "slim diet" which also provides half of your daily requirement of vitamin C and a third of zinc. Both keep the immune system on its toes. The water-soluble vitamin also has a positive effect on cholesterol levels, improves iron absorption in the body and promotes hormone production in the thyroid gland.

If there are no fresh string beans at the moment, then the whole thing will be just as tasty with deep-frozen string beans (add without defrosting).
