Cheese and Sorrel Omelette

from Mark Lee, 2012

I had been growing sorrel for years, not knowing how to use it. I decided not to let another season go by without doing something with it. After a little searching, I found that one of the classic pairings is sorrel and eggs. Here is a recipe I created for my introduction to sorrel.


1 handful of fresh sorrel leaves, stems removed
3 eggs
chunk of any cheese, 1/4 cup, chopped
parsely, 1 tsp chopped
green garlic stalk, chopped
black pepper
1 Tsp water


  1. Coat a nonstick pan with a thin layer of oil or butter or spray with Pam.
  2. Blanch the sorrel leaves.
  3. Drain the sorrel, and chop it. The sorrel at this point now reminds me of dolmas.
  4. Beat together all the ingredients.
  5. Cook the omelette.
