Preparation -- 10 minutes

WASH the celery stalks and cut away the ugly parts. CHOP each celery stalk and set aside. DICE the onion, if you're not sure how to dice onions, check out our tutorial on dicing onions like a pro

PEEL and dice the sweet potato very fine. If you're using dried chicken stock cubes (like we did), prepare 1 litre of chicken stock. Simply heat up 1 litre of water, crumble the dried chicken stock and pour over boiling water. Stir and set aside for now.
