Sorrel Mousse with Lemon Cream

Sorrel is a leafy green vegetable, not unlike spinach. It has a refreshing lemony taste and can be used as an herb or mixed along with spinach in any recipe calling for spinach. It’s also delicious torn up along with your salad greens. Or try this fabulous recipe for a special occasion:
1 ½ cups stemmed sorrel leaves
1 cup chicken or vegetable stock.
1/4 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Salt and freshly ground white pepper
1 ¼ cups heavy cream
¼ cup sour cream
In a blender, puree the sorrel with ¾ cup stock until smooth. In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the remaining ¼ cup stock and let stand until softened (about 2 minutes). Microwave the gelatin at medium power just until melted, 5 to 10 seconds. Add the gelatin mixture to the blender along with 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice and the red wine vinegar. Season with salt and pepper, puree until very smooth. Add 1 cup of the heavy cream and pulse just until very lightly whipped, about 1 minute. Pour the mousse into 6 small glasses. Refrigerate until set, about 4 hours. Before serving, whisk the ¼ cup cream and 1 tablespoon lemon juice with the sour cream to soft peaks. Season with salt and pepper. Dollop the lemon cream on the mousse and serve.

3 eggs
1 tablespoon water
1 cup sorrel, cleaned and trimmed
2 tablespoons butter, divided
1/4 tsp salt
Shred sorrel. In a heavy pan, heat half the butter and add sorrel and salt. Cook for about ten minutes, stirring occasionally, until wilted and tender. Cool a few minutes. Gently whisk the eggs and water in a bowl, until just combined. Add the sorrel mixture and combine. Season well with salt, pepper and a few red pepper flakes, if desired. Add the remaining butter to a omelet pan and heat until butter just until it begins to brown. Add the egg mixture, shaking pan to spread evenly.
