Spring Greens and Potato Chowder

I am very happy to share my recipe for chowder which includes some cheese as well as fresh kale greens and sorrel leaves. If you can’t find sorrel you can always sub in another type of green with something lemony added to boost the flavor. Examples of those might be lemon, sumac powder or mango powder (amchur).
