Soup anyone?

Here’s a quick recipe:

1 tblsp olive oil; 1 carrot; 1 leek; 1 onion; 1 large spud; 1 cube veg. stock; 400g washed nettles; 50g diced butter; 50ml double cream.

Heat the oil, add the chopped veg and the diced spud, cook for 10 mins. Add the stock, cook another 15 mins. Add the leaves, simmer for 1 min. Blend, season, and stir in the butter and cream.

I wouldn’t use onions myself; horrible slithery, slimy things. I wouldn’t use the cream and butter either.

Nettles only grow near people – not in the wild; isn’t that interesting?
