Broccoli, Potato and Silverbeet Soup
Broccoli, Potato and Silverbeet Soup made by my year 1 and 2s
I recently posted about using broccoli from our school garden in recipes with my students. I promised that I would post the recipes as the kids absolutely loved them so here if the first one for you – Broccoli, Potato and Silverbeet Soup.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, crushed,  or 1 garlic leaf stem, chopped
4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
½ cup of your favourite herbs, chopped (we used parsley, thyme and chives)
2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 head and stem of broccoli, cut into florets
½ cup silverbeet, chopped
½ cup cream


  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add onion and stir for 5 minutes or until soft.
  3. Add garlic and stir for 1 minute or until aromatic.
  4. Add stock, herbs, potatoes and broccoli. Bring to boil,cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 12-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  5. Add silverbeet and simmer for 1 minute or until just wilted.
  6. Remove from heat, use a stick blender to process the soup, stir through cream, serve and enjoy!

A special thank to you Petroula for recommending a similar soup on our facebook page. This is my adapted version for kids. Give it a go and please let us know what you think.
