White Beans Soup with Sorrel

Thursday night is soup night and I am calling this recipe “between-the-seasons soup.” Still cold in the Northeast and perfect for a smooth creamy white bean soup topped with the tanginess of sorrel leaves. These greens on my plate are the taste of Spring.
As a child in Brazil, I would eat azedinha (translates little sour leaves) from my mom’s herb garden.
I got a bunch of Sorrel from Rebekah Rice’s 9 mile farm in Delmar.
Sorrel is an excellent source of vitamin C and A. Each serving provides approximately half of the daily recommended intake of vitamin C.
