Peel and chop the sweet potato into similar size chunks. The potato doesn't take as long to cook, so you can cut the potato into larger pieces.
Wash silverbeet. You don't need to remove the white stem, but you can if you'd prefer.
Fill your pot with water and place the sweet potato inside. Add the steaming basket on top, place the beets inside, and put the lid on top. Set on a medium heat for 15-20 mins.
Check the beets with a knife and see they are easily pierced. Once they have softened, add the silverbeet to the steaming basket, with the beets, for the last 5 minutes.
Remove the beets and silverbeet and place inside your blender. Drain the water (reserve some) and add the sweet potato to the blender as well. Blend or pulse, deepening on your desired consistency.
Use immediately or freeze in pods. For those of you practicing BLW (baby led weening), try adding something chunkier to the puree, like some shredded chicken or turkey. It's good to keep changing the consistency of your baby's food so that they don't become picky eaters!
For the Love of Food
I think eating well is a form of self-respect, and that's evident in my recipes.
