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

I made sure to dice all ingredients (except the potatoes) very finely. I agree that it gave the soup a good texture. I used only 2 large russet potatoes and that was plenty. I substituted the...
