  1. Fill a large pot about 3/4 full with water; bring to a boil. Add diced potatoes and cook until fork-tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in green onions and cook another 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in spinach and sorrel; cook another 2 to 3 minutes, or until wilted; remove from heat.
  2. Pour the beaten eggs into the mixture in a slow and steady stream, stirring constantly, until the soup thickens. Season with salt, sugar, and vinegar to get a slightly sweet and tangy taste. Pour soup into a large bowl; allow soup to cool before transferring to the refrigerator to chill completely.
  3. Garnish with any combination of cucumber, chopped egg, sour cream, and dill.

This is an amazing soup! The only problem I have no idea where to buy Sorrel. I will try to check out local farmers markets or grow it which can be quite an ordeal:(

Unfortunately I couldn't find any sorrel, and I bet this was the key flavor I was missing. This was good, but I know it can be better. I filled a large soup pot about 60% of the way with water ...

I made sure to dice all ingredients (except the potatoes) very finely. I agree that it gave the soup a good texture. I used only 2 large russet potatoes and that was plenty. I substituted the...
