Sorrel Soup

1 Tbsp salt
4-5 medium potatoes (any kind will work), diced
1 medium onion, finely diced
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 large eggs, lightly beaten with a fork
2 Bay Leaves
3 Tbsp Dill (fresh or frozen)
4 cups fresh Schavel, packed, rinsed and chopped (or use 3 cups chopped, frozen Shchavel)
Sour cream or mayo to serve

Sorrel Soup-
How to Make Sorrel Borscht:

1. Fill a large pot with 14 cups vegetable broth. add the 1 Tbsp of salt and simmer.

2. Add diced potatoes, 2 bay leaves and lightly boil 15 minutes or until potatoes can be pierced with a fork.

3. While potatoes are cooking, saute 1 diced onion in 2 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat until golden brown and add to the pot with the soup.

4. Next, lightly beat 2 eggs together and stir them in to the pot.

5. When potatoes are cooked through, stir in Shchavel (Sorrel) and Dill. Return pot to a boil and simmer additional 3-5 minutes or until sorrel is soft. Adding more sorrel will make your soup/borscht more sour.

Serve hot with an optional dollop of sour cream or mayo.
I did not bother with the potatoes and onions. Just heated to broth, added speck of salt and the washed sorrel. Steamed a few minutes. Added sour cream and blended-the cream neutralizes the sour sorrel.

Shchavel Borscht (Sorrel Soup)

In Russia and Ukraine, sorrel is called shchavel’ (щавель). Shchaveloviy borscht or Green borsch is a classic Ukrainian soup – we serve it hot with a dollop of sour cream or mayo.  My mom grows Shchavel in her yard and it’s currently flourishing – time to make soup! If you have a yummy recipe with sorrel, I’d love to hear from you!
