  • Summary

    Sorrel -- a tart spring herb rich in vitamins A and C -- paired with garlic for an elegant soup. A bulb of garlic may seem like a lot, but the flavor mellows as the soup cooks.

    Ingredients

    • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
    • 1 garlic bulb (about 16 cloves), cloves lightly crushed with the flat side of a large knife
    • 1 medium russet potato (about 1/2 pound), peeled and cubed
    • Scant 1/2 teaspoon saffron threads
    • 1 bay leaf
    • Pinch of crushed red-pepper flakes
    • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 2 ounces fresh sorrel leaves, cut into 1/2-inch strips
    • 4 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (or to taste)
    • 8 thin slices baguette
    • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • Freshly ground pepper
