My friend Bethan from Wales sends me recipes all the time and in this batch was a recipe for Nettle Soup. We grow a huge patch of nettle every year and this recipe is perfect. This amazing green is sometimes called "Wonder Weed". Here's a link if you're interested in it. It' is very healthy for you!

Step-by-Step

  1. Pick over the nettle leaves and toss out any stems, they are tough and don't taste too good.
  2. Melt the coconut oil in a large pot over med-low heat. Add the onion, leek, celery and garlic and cover and sweat for 10 minutes, stirring a few times throughout the process. You want the veggies soft but not brown.
  3. Add the rice and stock and bring up to a simmer and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  4. Add the nettle and stir it in and simmer for an additional 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Puree the soup in a blender in two batches, or use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the pot.
  6. Serve in warmed bowls with a large dollop of yogurt on tope. Sprinkle with chives if desired.
  7. Enjoy!
