3 (10 1/2-ounce) cans low-salt chicken broth
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup uncooked long-grain rice
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups thinly sliced sorrel
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups plain low-fat yogurt
Minced fresh parsley (optional)


Bring broth to a boil in a large saucepan. Add onion, rice, and garlic. Cover; reduce heat to low. Simmer 20 minutes or until rice is tender, stirring occasionally. Add sorrel, salt, and pepper; cook, uncovered, 1 minute or until sorrel wilts.

Place yogurt in a bowl. Gradually add 3/4 cup broth mixture to yogurt, stirring constantly with a whisk. Stir yogurt mixture into remaining broth mixture in pan, and cook over low heat 1 minute or until thoroughly heated (do not boil). Ladle soup into bowls, and sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
