Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 pound sorrel leaves, stems removed
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 3 cups vegetable stock or water

  • Sour cream or plain yogurt for garnish
Directions

Heat butter in a large saucepan over moderate heat. Add onion and saute until soft, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and saute another 2 minutes. Add sorrel and celery and cook for about 5 minutes, or until sorrel is wilted. Add stock or water, parsley, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Simmer for about 20 minutes.
