Recipe: Sorrel Greens Soup (Paleo, GAPS, SCD)

Sorrel Greens Soup, soup

I had planted a small patch of sorrel in the spring and I have gotten several bunches from it. There it was, growing back again! It makes a terrific soup!

With the cooler weather coming in I wanted to use up all the sorrel greens still growing in my garden.

If you do not have sorrel greens handy, you can use any leafy green for this soup but the sorrel does give it a nice flavor. However, the homemade chicken stock and all the other elements of the soup lend a savory taste to this nourishing soup. Great as a meal in itself or as a starter.

I like to puree some of the vegetables to make it thicker and then leave other vegetables chunky for a nice bite. The celery root makes you think you are eating chunks of potato and lends a heartiness to a starch free soup (GAPS and SCD legal). You can also use small chunks of Daikon root for that chunky bite.
