Silverbeet SoupI make the best eggplant soup and will share my fantastic Tasty Silverbeet soup recipe. The soup is healthy, easy to make, and delicious. The Silverbeet grows in my raised garden bed, which is raised because I use a wheelchair to get around.

These are the ingredients that I used for my soup. Adjust to suit your taste and the weight of the silverbeet you grow (or buy!). The soup is gluten-free and suitable for people with allergies to garlic and onions.

  • 1.7 kg (3.7 pounds) Silverbeet (bottom stalks removed)
  • 3kg (6.6 pounds) sweet potato – chopped
  • three celery stalks – chopped
  • four carrots – chopped
  • 10 cups gluten-free chicken stock
  • 90 ml (3 oz) extra virgin olive oil garlic-infused
  • 90 ml (3 oz)  extra virgin olive oil onion-infused

The final tasty Silverbeet soup ingredients can be adjusted to suit your taste.

  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Prepare the vegetables

  • I place a plastic garbage bag under the chopping board to make cleanup simpler
  • Take the skin off the carrots, the celery and the sweet potatoes
  • Chop off white stalks from the silverbeet
  • Rinse silverbeet under (I used a laundry basket due to the volume of leaves)
  • Rinse sweet potatoes, carrots and celery under water and chop into chunks
