Ingredients

  • 400 g nettles
  • 1 litre vegetable stock stock
  • Dash of olive oil
  • 2 medium size onions finely chopped
  • 4-5 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 2 medium size potatoes finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to season
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Fresh dill to decorate

Instructions

  1. Pick the wild nettles and carefully wash in a cold water. Using gloves, cut off any leaves that are old or stems that are too thick.
  2. In the meantime, sauté onions and garlic with the olive oil in a saucepan for few minutes on a medium heat until soft. I then add potatoes and mix it for few minutes. In this stage, make sure your potatoes are not sticking to the pan, once they start doing it, add some more oil or just keep mixing.
  3. Add the vegetable stock and boil it until potatoes are soft.
  4. Carefully place the nettles in a pan with the soup mix and simmer for 1-2 min. The less time you keep them in boiling water, the more nutritious they stay.
  5. Blend everything and season it with salt and pepper and a dash of sugar.
