Sorrel Borscht (Shchav, Shchavel) – Recipe

If you like tangy flavored soups, you will love Sorrel Borscht (Shchav). My first experience with tasting this dish was in a Polish restaurant, while visiting my family in Poland. My husband really liked the slightly tangy taste of this soup, so I have been preparing it during the sorrel growing season. The main ingredient is sorrel, of course, a simple herb but not easily found in a grocery store, but rather in a specialty food shop, or a garden (your own or your friend’s).

You can find a ready-made Shchav Borscht, in the Kosher section at your favorite grocery store, but its taste does not measure up to the fresh, homemade version. Once you make it at home, you most likely will never want to buy it pre-made.

Italian Wedding Soup with Kale – Recipe

Italian Wedding soup is almost a whole meal in one bowl, as you have the broth, the veggies, the little meatballs, and pasta or rice.

My daughter makes this soup for her family, as her children love the little meatballs in the soup, so I also added it to my list of soups I prepare at home and often share with them.

French Onion Soup – Recipe

My husband and I love French Onion Soup, however, the ones we have been sampling in our local restaurants, are either too salty or quite bitter tasting.

Lentils With Mushrooms and Asparagus – Vegetarian Soup Recipe

I was searching for a healthful vegetarian soup recipe, and after reading the Fat Smash Diet recipes, I came up with my own version of the Lentils with Broiled Mushrooms and Asparagus soup.

I used most of the ingredients in that recipe, but in larger quantities, and applied a slightly different cooking process in completing it.  Today I am posting my version, as I am quite pleased with the taste and texture of this hearty soup.
