Cook's Notes

Be sure to wear heavy gloves when removing the nettle leaves from the stems. If you can't find nettle leaves, you can substitute Swiss chard or spinach with delicious results.

    This soup cannot be called luxurious--perhaps it's not the nature of nettles. It does not taste like spinach; it has its own taste. I found the soup bland. My child did not like the taste or smell. I would not make nettles soup again. Sorry.

    I've made this recipe many times and it is great. I am vegetarian/no garlic/no onions so I make it with "better than chicken" stock and no onions and it is still fabulous. I wildcraft my nettles right before cooking.
