Sorrel Borscht (Shchav, Shavel) – 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, in the Kosher section at your favorite grocery store, but it’s taste does not measure up to the fresh, home made version. Once you make it at home, you most likely will never want to buy it pre-made.

Cabbage and Sausage Soup – Recipe

Winter is not over yet, so don’t be fooled by the warm sun during the day.  The nights are still quite cold, so perfect time for a bowl of hot homemade soup for dinner.

This Cabbage and Sausage Soup recipe is from Nick Stellino’s site, but for your convenience I am posting it here as well.

My sister-in-law tired this recipe first, and her family unanimously approved it, so she suggested for me to try it.

It takes less 30 minutes to prepare.

Sauerkraut Soup with Cannellini – Ukrainian Kapusniak Recipe

Europeans love their soup, as anyone who traveled to Eastern Europe would agree that soup in part of every lunch and dinner menu.

Soups are quite simple to prepare, and very nutritious as well.  You can make your own stock, as the base for every soup, or use the ready-made available at your grocer.  There is such a variety of broth now…chicken, beef, vegetable, low-fat, low sodium….so it makes it that much easier to get your soup cooking together.
