Ready In:




  • If using ramps cut stems into 1/2-inch segments and shred leaves.
  • broth:

  • Heat the sesame oil [do not use dark] in a pot then add all remaining ingredients.
  • Cook, covered, over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  • Add the water and cook uncovered for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until the stock has developed good flavor.
  • Strain the vegetables out, and season broth to taste with salt.
  • The broth can be made up to a few days in advance or used for other recipes calling for vegetable broth or in place of chicken, beef or fish broth in other recipes.
  • The vegetables:

  • Bring water and salt to a boil in a large pot. Add the diced carrots and cook for 2 minutes, or until tender. Remove with a slotted spoon and place in an ice-water bath to stop the cooking process. As soon as the carrots are cool, take them out of the water and set them aside.
  • Repeat this process with the sugar snap peas, baby turnips, ramps and fava beans.
  • Once the fava beans are cooled, peel off their skins. Do NOT precook the sorrel.
  • Assemble:

  • Stir the vegetables, quinoa and sorrel into the hot broth and heat for 1 minute.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings.
  • Ladle into bowls, garnish with the sesame seeds and serve. Serves 4-6.

I WILL NOT say they are Vegetarian or Vegan any longer due to the database changes. I DO NOT WISH YOU TO RECOMMEND THEM. Consider them as faulty. It's your own fault if you trust them. Don't bother to review. Don't ask me a question. I won't answer. I'm not here anymore. I will NOT warrent any recipe on this site put up by me as correct due to Scripps problems. IF they claim to have fixed it, I still do not warrent any recipe as correct except the ones that I put up personally on the tripod site so use any recipe posted under my name at your own risk. Basic? Lots of luck. Now the ones at [see De Gustibus Veg*n in link on top], yeah, I will take responsiblity for all of them and the ingredients. I put them up and any errors are all mine. No the door didn't hit me on the ### but the skid marks in the parking lot are mine.
