Directions

Chop two leeks finely; fry them lightly on a gentle heat in a little fat; add a small cabbage, diced, stir with a spoon so that the moisture from the cabbage evaporates, then moisten with some vegetable stock; add two or three slices of potato and cook for about 30 minutes.
A few minutes before removing from the heat, add a handful of finely chopped sorrel (spinach and a squeeze of lemon juice may be substituted for the sorrel), a little pepper and some grated mace.
Pour the soup over small pieces of bread.
