    POTATO, LEEK, AND SORREL SOUP
    from "The Well-Filled Microwave Cookbook" by Susanna Hoffman and Victoria Wise

    Potato soup can sometimes suffer from a rather pallid flavor, which is why we like to brighten it up with appetizing leeks and keenly flavored sorrel. Sorrel is an unusual but available leafy green with a sour edge to its taste. When combined with leek's soft onion essence, a smart potato soup results.

    PREPARATION

    1. Place the butter and 1 cup of the water in a large bowl and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes, or until the butter melts. Add the leeks and sorrel, cover, and microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are well wilted.
    2. Add the potatoes and remaining 4 cups water, cover, and microwave on HIGH for 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft enough to mash when pressed with a spoon.
    3. Add the salt and cream, if using. Whisk to mix and mash the potatoes. Sprinkle the chives, if using, over the top and serve right away.
    Note:
    If sorrel is not available, substitute an equal amount of spinach and 1 teaspoon lemon juice.
