Recipe: Sorrel Vichyssoise

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 leeks, white and light green parts only, washed thoroughly and thinly sliced (approximately 6 cups)
  • 6-8 cups packed sorrel, stems removed and coarsely chopped
  • 3 pounds medium-sized russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 6-8 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 6-8 cups packed cups equal portions of spinach, stems removed and coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1-2 fistfuls of snipped chives plus extra for garnish, if desired
  • Pinch of nutmeg and cayenne

Instructions

  1. Sauté leeks in oil over low heat with a pinch of kosher salt 3 minutes. Add sorrel and cook an additional 2-3 minutes or until sorrel has cooked down and turned a khaki color and leeks have wilted.
  2. Add potatoes and stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Turn off the burner and while soup is still hot, stir in spinach.
  3. In a food processor, puree soup until creamy. Stir milk and chives into soup. Season to taste with kosher salt, cayenne and nutmeg. Delicious served hot or cold, as you would a vichyssoise.
