Recipe- Carrot/Nettle Soup

Post by MarieM » Fri Apr 29, 2011 4:01 pm

Carrot/Nettle Soup

1 tomato
1 carrot
2 cups nettle leaf
1 dessertspoon olive oil
2 tsp pumpkin seeds
1/4tsp thyme
dash turmeric
1/2 clove garlic
1 tsp miso

Pour boiled water over the nettles and leave to steep for 5 mins. Strain the nettles but keep the water. Put all of the above in a blender with the nettles and add 1 cup hot water (nettle soak water) and blend until smooth.

Season with your own preference of herbs but my rats and I both like thyme.

I also like to add a little seaweed to the soup as a garnish such as dulse or mixed sea veg.

You can use some pine nuts in place of the pumpkin seed if you like.
