15 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook
So in front of Wil's studio, there are tons of nettles. Most people hate them cause they sting and grow like crazy. But, in fact, they also get used for medicinal and cosmetic purposes, for example as a remedy for arthritis and intestinal problems, as well as for purifications and fasts. Nettles are really good for your liver and gall bladder and they help controlling dandruff and make your hair all shiny...
You can also just eat them. When prepared they almost taste like spinach
(but they contain more iron than spinach!).
Wil found a recipe for Stinging Nettles Soup, and we couldn't resist, but had to try it out.
It was delicious and really easy to prepare!
Just remember wearing gloves when picking and preparing them...
It tastes way better if you use homemade chicken or vegetable broth rather than the powdered version. I find the powdered stuff often way too salty and chemical/msg tasting...
