Nettle Soup Recipe


Stinging Nettle Soup

Stinging Nettle Soup

6 cups of tightly packed nettle leaves
3 medium onion, chopped
4 tablespoons butter
2 cups stock (veggie, chicken or beef will do)
4 cups milk
4 tablespoons oat flakes – the ones used for oatmeal [if you don’t have any don’t worry, it’s not a reason not to make the recipe]
4 good sized carrots, peeled and cut into round pieces
5 pieces of garlic, chopped

What to do:

Melt butter in a pot large enough to hold all the ingredients listed above. Saute the onion quickly – don’t let it brown! Add nettles, carrots, garlic, stock, milk and oats. Simmer for about 50 minutes. We like most soups creamed so when it was done cooking I creamed in the food processor.

I’d love to hear what you think and how your soup turned out, as well as about any exciting changes you’ve made to your recipe! Feel free to comment, email me or bookmark this page!
