1/3 Photos of Shav – Sorrel Soup With Hard Boiled Egg
2 hrs 15 mins
Shav, also known as Sorrel Soup can be either served hot or cold, but I prefer it as a cold soup. After it is chilled in the refrigerator, I add into each individual bowls a chopped up hard boiled egg and a dab of sour cream. Sorrel leaves are expensive, so I use spinach instead and you can hardly taste a big difference (provided sour salt is used). This soup can be found in Jewish cuisines and known in Russian, Polish and other eastern European countries. Served this tasty soup with an old style hard crusted pumpernickel bread and enjoy!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Wash thoroughly the spinach in cold water, then chop finely.
- 2Add 8 cups of water to a pot and bring to a boil.
- 3Add the chopped spinach, chopped onions and sour salt.
- 4Bring back up to a low boil and cook for 10 minutes, then set aside and allow to cool somewhat, then into the refrigerator to chill.
- 5Pour the chilled soup into 4 individual bowls, add a chopped up hard boiled egg and a dab of sour cream in the center.
- 6Serve with slices of hard crusted pumpernickel bread, enjoy.
- 8If sorrel is used instead of spinach use less since they are expensive and therefore use less water for cooking, plus only use 1 teaspoon sour salt.
- 9Some people add egg yokes to the luke warm soup when it starts to cool and blend well, And make sure the egg does not curl up, I often use the egg yokes from a carton (found in the supermarkets) to reduce the risk of Salmonella from uncooked eggs.
