Silverbeet, Pumpkin and Potato Soup

Silverbeet, Pumpkin and Potato Soup

by Fiona Cheron.

I love silverbeet and during winter when there’s slim pickings in the vegie garden there is an abundance of its gorgeous, dark green goodness growing.

Pair it with root vegetables to make this delicious warming winter soup you can feel doing you good.
