Garlic Scape and Sorrel Soup

I love Garlic Scapes. I love Sorrel. Naturally, I must combine the two. And obviously, I have to combine them in my favorite mode – soup.  I don’t care that it’s the hottest day we’ve had this year.  I want soup. It’s still soup if it’s served cool, right? Or does it have a different name?

Garlic Scapes

Garlic Scapes

Garlic Scape and Sorrel Soup

  • 1 cup(ish) chopped Garlic Scapes
  • 1 cup(ish) chopped Sorrel
  • 1 chopped garlic clove (or more if you really love garlic)
  • 2 chopped medium potatoes
  • 1 quart chicken broth (make your own 🙂 it’ll taste better)
  • butter
  • salt, pepper, any other herb that strikes your fancy
  • Milk – enough to thin out the soup or to taste

Saute the garlic scapes for a few minutes, then add the garlic clove and saute a few more minutes. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil and add the potatoes.  Cook them until tender.  Add the sorrel and let it wilt for a bit and then blend everything until smooth. Add milk. Taste and add seasoning as needed.

Extra delicious with a slice of fresh bread with butter.
