Helpful Tip

Sorrel soup with cheese will be particularly hearty if you cook it with beef or chicken broth instead of water. Make sure the broth is rich but not fatty, as excess fat is unnecessary for this dish.

Additional Information

To make the tartness of the sorrel more delicate, add spinach in a 1:1 ratio with the sorrel. For the quantities listed in the recipe, use 7 oz (200 g) of sorrel and 7 oz (200 g) of spinach.
