Guess the name of this Green Soup?

Nettle Soup

My first introduction to Stinging Nettles began approx. 15 years ago when my dear friend Marie was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver. I did a lot of research into natural help for her liver, and decided she needed nettles – immediately.

We found a great grove of nettles in a local park close to the walking path, and near the stream. We harvested a huge shopping bag of nettles and I actually shipped them to her by Fed Ex overnight.   I realize now how much value I put on those nettles or I would have never gone to that expense. 

Now I am a little older, and still the stinging nettle is more than a spring tonic. It can be a real remedy for many with kidney and liver problems. It is a God-send for the do-it-yourselfers like me, who really appreciates God’s creation, and the freedom to make natural remedies for myself.

Here you go.  We actually celebrated with 2 friends, and we ate every single drop.  It tasted mildly like a spinach creamed soup.  Absolutely yummy.

Nettle Soup

  • Wash and chop nettles (don’t include stems)
  • Saute onion (saute for 3 mins),
  • add chopped nettles, saute for another 3 minutes,
  • add vegetable stock and 1 grated potato.  I guess it was approx. 4 cups worth – will definitely measure it next time.
  • Cook for 20 minutes.
  • Blend ingredients in a blender.
  • Add cashew milk (or other nut milk or creamer) – 1 cup?
  • Add s & p to taste.

Have fun and let me know how yours turned out!
