Beautiful Stinging Nettles!

I have been drinking copious amounts of nettle tea of late – I have cut out coffee and regular tea completely. I love nettle tea – it is so good for you and tastes delicious! Even better, it’s FREE!

Here’s a Nettle Soup Recipe I have come across here: http://motleymanor.wordpress.com

Once I have made the soup, I will post a photo!

Nettle Soup 

1 tbsp ( 15ml) Olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 large potato, chopped into largish dice
1 large carrot, chopped in half lengthways and sliced
1/2 lb (250g) fresh nettles (equals about half a carrier bag loosely filled)
4 cups (1 litre) vegetable stock
1/2 nutmeg, freshly grated

Method:

Heat the oil.
Fry the onion until transparent.
Add potato, carrot, nettles and stock.
Bring to the boil and simmer for about 15 minutes, until the potato is soft.
Blend the soup until smooth.
Stir in the nutmeg and serve. (Add a swirl of cream – (non-dairy if desired.)
