“This highly-unusual spring or summer soup was called 'green borscht' in my family. It's served chilled and is very pleasant and refreshing.”

Original recipe yields 8 servings

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot to about 3/4-full with water; bring to a boil; add the potatoes and cook until fork tender, 8 to 10 minutes; add the green onions and cook another 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the spinach and sorrel; cook another 2 to 3 minutes; remove from heat. Pour the beaten eggs into the mixture in a slow and steady stream while stirring until the soup thickens. Season with salt, sugar, and vinegar to get a slightly sweet and tangy taste. Allow soup to cool before moving to refrigerator to chill completely. Garnish with any combination of cucumber, egg, sour cream, and dill.

A wonderful recipe, but I believe a step was left out. Since the recipe didn't say "dice/chop very very fine" I think that before the beaten eggs are added, the soup should be blended. It would also be helpful to have better instruction than "fill a large pot 3/4 full with water." I used my 5 1/2 quart Le Creuset pot, and filled it 3/4 full. By the time I added the 4 large potatoes, it was full to the brim. Since potatoes greatly vary in size, a weight would be helpful. We picked the sorrel from our community herb garden--as other reviewers have said it's hard to find sorrel in stores (including our local co-op). It would be nice to know how much a "bunch" of sorrel is.

this is a very good recipe for "holodnik" I have not being able to find "shaveel" or sorrel in US, but I think balsamic vinegar should do the trick, your recipe is delightful because it shows how to use spinach and get a zing! thumbs up!

This is an amazing soup! The only problem I have no idea where to buy Sorrel. I will try to check out local farmers markets or grow it which can be quite an ordeal:(
