Eating Well: Sorrel Soup


| March/April 1998



Spaghetti squash is a pleasant and nutritious way to add fiber to your diet. Onions contain quercetin, which helps lower cholesterol and strengthen small blood vessels. The Sorrel Pesto gives this recipe a citrus tang. Sorrel is a diuretic; it’s also a rich source of oxalic acid, which should be avoided by those prone to kidney stones. Serves 8.

Soup Base

• 4 onions
• 1 small spaghetti squash
• 8 cups seasoned broth (use homemade or canned stock, vegetable bouillon cubes, Marmite, or Vegemite)
• Salt to taste

Sorrel Pesto

• 2 to 3 cloves garlic
• 2 cups sorrel, coarsely torn
• 1/4 cup pine nuts
• 1/4 cup shredded parmesan (optional)
• 1 tablespoon olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
