Creamy Sorrel and Potato Soup

    20 minutes

    Sorrel is a strong peppery green and adds a great flavour to soups. This soup is filling because of the rice. Adjust quantities of sorrel, stock and cream if you want.

    I could not believe how good this soup was! I even substituted 3/4 c. of rice milk and 2 T. of butter for the heavy cream, and it was still so creamy. I've never had sorrel before and now have requested more from my farmer's co-op. Thank you!!  -  11 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My husband and I belong to an organic food coop that delivers us a box of vegetables every two weeks. Last week's delivery contained a big bunch of sorrel and I had no idea what to do with it. I made this soup this weekend and it was wonderful-very savory. I added a bay leaf to my broth and I used a little more cream than was called for. I will definitely make this again.  -  08 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I had never had sorrel before and purchsed some from the farmers market today. Saw this recipe and thought I would try it. I didn't have heavy cream, but used FF half and half. Good but a little thin. Put in 4 T of frozen potato flakes to help thicken it up...delish. Has a light lemony flavor. Will make again.  -  09 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
