Cucumber and Sorrel Soup Recipe

Cucumber and Sorrel Soup Recipe

6 first-course servings

 

Ingredients:

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sliced green onions, divided

1 clove garlic, minced

3 cups peeled, seeded, chopped cucumbers

1 cup coarsely chopped sorrel

2 cups each: fat-free milk, reduced-sodium-fat-free chicken broth

1 tablespoon cornstarch

2 tablespoons water

Salt and white pepper, to taste

1 1/2 cups Herb Croutons

Method:

Saute 1/4 cup green onions and garlic in lightly greased saucepan until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add cucumbers and sorrel, and cook over medium heat 5 minutes. Add milk and broth, heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until cucumbers are tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

 

Process soup in food processor or blender until smooth, return to saucepan and heat to boiling. Whisk in combined cornstarch and water, whisking until thickened, about 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and white pepper. Serve chilled, top each bowl of soup with Herb Croutons and remaining green onions.
