Nettle and almond soup

nettle soup

Prague’s vegetable markets are a delight in spring…

Today, to my surprise I found bunches of nettles on sale, and there was also fresh garlic…

With that in my basket and a good handful of almonds, I have prepared a simple, delicious nettle soup…

As you know nettle has many benefits, especially in spring: it helps to purify the blood, is diuretic, it contains mucilages and has antihistaminic properties. It is also rich in calcium and magnesium, helping to strengthen your bones.

Ingredients:

1 good handful of nettles (about 100 grams)

3 fresh garlics (depending on the size)

1/4 strip of wakame

1 handful of unpeeled almonds per person

1 litre of water

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt

 

nettle soup

Elaboration:

Wash and cut the nettles.

Chop the fresh garlic too.

Put the almonds to soak. If you have them soaked from the night before, much better.

Heat a pot and add 2 tbsp. of olive oil.

Sauté the fresh garlics 2 or 3 minutes, stirring continuously so they do not burn. Add the nettles and skip another minute.

Add the water, a pinch of salt and bring to a boil.

When it starts to boil, lower the flame and cook on low heat, with lid for 5 minutes.

Add the almonds and leave another 3 minutes.

Turn off, and let it sit for a couple of minutes before serving.

Delicious …

Cook it with love … and enjoy it!
