Ingredients

0 portion(s)

  • 30 g Butter
  • 3 handfuls of silverbeet leaves, stripped from the stems; or spinach
  • a few leaves of celery, or a stick
  • 1 small onion, (and 1 clove garlic, optional)

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 heaped tablespoon TMX stock concentrate, (chicken or vegetable, as preferred)

Recipe's preparation

    This may sound odd, but it is SO good ... it is never twice the same, depending on what there is in the garden, so the ingredient amounts are just guidelines. Do not fill the bowl beyond the 2 litre mark.
  1. Place in the TMX bowl 30g butter and the onion and garlic.  Chop on speed 8 for 10 seconds.

    Take off MC and saute for 2 minutes on 100 degrees C on speed 2.

    Add all greens and chop speed 7 for 4 seconds.  Add water and stock concentrate and simmer for 15 minutes on 100 degrees C on speed 2.

    Blend until smooth, by slowly moving the dial up to speed 9.  Keep pureeing for 30 seconds.

    Add a swirl of sour cream to the soup just before serving.

Tip

Try using lettuces, when they are threatening to "bolt"; or the tops of broad beans, when pinched to stop growth; or young peapods - any green garden vegetable you like, except the cabbage family (cabbage tends to be too dominant).

    Sparky, I really appreciate your feedback.  I'm glad your DH and you enjoyed the soup.  It's a hit here too.  The fact you've drawn attention to the suggested amount of garlic means that other garlic-lovers will know to up the amount too, if they try this recipe.  Enjoy the recipe community, Sparky, and I look forward to reading your recipes here too.  tmrc_emoticons.)

    tmrc_emoticons.) thanks for this recipe! We don't eat a lot of greens and really want to ... And this soup tasted amazing! I added spinach, zucchini, shallots and parsley as my greens - and it was a hit. I also added an extra clove of garlic cause we love garlic.      My husband loved it!!!
