I’m currently enjoying a summer holiday at home with my parents in Germany. A nice break from the bleak Melbourne winter. One of the many things I love at my parent’s place is their extensive veggie patch.
They grow all my favourites; beans, capsicum, kohlrabi, all different kinds of herbs and sorrel. The taste of sorrel always brings back images of my childhood. When I was at kindergarten I remember picking wild sorrel on a field behind the kindergarten and eating those tangy leaves straight after picking. They are delicious!
And my great-grandmother, grandmother and mother all made sorrel soup for us kids, with chopped hard boiled eggs on top. So of course I was very excited when my mother suggested we make sorrel soup today. It’s super quick and easy to make and only takes a few ingredients, but the soup is super tasty.
