Melt butter in a soup pot. When the butter is completely liquid, turn the heat to medium and add onions and carrots. Sauté, stirring from time to time, about 5 minutes. Add chicken stock, skim the foam and add potatoes. Cook on medium heat about 15-20 minutes. Add bay leaf and salt to taste. Add sorrel. Add more salt if needed as well as freshly ground black pepper. When sorrel is soft—this should take about 7 minutes, add minced herbs and turn off the heat. Serve green borsch garnished with more herbs, diced hard-boiled egg and sour cream.
