There is nothing better than a fresh bowl of green herb soup on a sunny, but chilly, mid-March afternoon. My mom used to make this soup when I was a child, and now I serve it to my kids and they love it. When I can’t find sorrel, I use spinach. (Sorrel can usually be found in most Whole Foods stores). This is one of my favorite soups. I love the greens and the fact that the taste is not overwhelming like others.
