Nettle Soup

Nettles are at their very best right now! Young, juicy and full of antioxidants, nettles also help improve liver and kidney function.

Collect a football sized bag of fresh young nettle leaves. Wash the leaves and trim the stalks.

Sautée a large onion, some finely chopped garlic and 2 or 3 chopped spuds  in olive oil, until the onions are translucent and the spuds starting to crisp, then drop in the nettles and stir well.

Add 1 litre of vegetable stock and simmer ‘til spuds are soft.

Add salt and black pepper and blend.

And just to be really healthy, swirl a twirl of crème fraiche into each bowl of soup just before serving!

Serves 4

Looking forward to hearing from you all with yummy, healthy recipes for Spring.
