    Stinging Nettle Soup

    Add oil or butter and saute 3 min/Varoma/speed 1.

    Add potato, carrot, nettles, water, stock, pepper and cook 20 mins/100C/speed 1. (To avoid overloading the Thermomix, add the nettles in batches during cooking.)

    Blend 30 sec/speed 8, gradually increasing from speed 1 to speed 8 or until thoroughly blended.


    If a creamier consistency is desired, add cream or milk and blend 30 sec/speed 4. For a vegan version, cashews can be added prior to blending as above.

  • This is delicious! I had

    This is delicious! I had nettles pop up in my garden and fought for months to get rid of them. I finally decided to try to use them, glad I did. Next time I won't add so much water, as I prefer a thicker soup.
