Nutritional values

This soup gets you in top form: plenty of protein, many vitamins, valuable minerals and secondary plant substances keep you fit all round. In addition, mushrooms and vegetables are rich in dietary fibres that aid digestion.

Enjoy some toasted bread with the soup. Due to the additional carbohydrates the saturation lasts even longer.
