//creamy stinging nettle soup (vegan)//


 this soup is so good! its really creamy and almost taste like a chowder.


10 red potatoes peeled

A big bowl full of stinging nettle leafs

1 large onion

1 can coconut milk

4 cups water

pinch of garlic powder

salt and pepper to taste


Fill a large bowl with stinging nettle leaves, make sure you’re wearing gloves when you do this, and make sure you know you’re picking the right plant. Rinse nettle leaves very well in cool water. Wash and peel potatoes and chop them into cubes. Chop onion into large slices. In a large pot combine 1 can coconut milk, water, potatoes, onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Boil until the potatoes and onion are soft, add in the stinging nettle leaves and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 20 minutes. Once its cooled down enough pour the soup into a blender and blend until its a creamy green color. 

And there you have a creamy stinging nettle soup. I topped mine with a little bit of cinnamon and pine nuts.

I hope you have a great day! -Christa

  1. Interesting. There’s a group at the farmers market, they hire refugees to work on their farm and sell every edible thing that grows there. They have stinging nettles! I’ll have to try this.
