This time last year, I started Detox Health Beauty and this was the first soup I featured, so for old times sake, here's the recipe I used. My youngest daughter and I picked the stinging nettles (carefully!) and she loved the novelty of foraging, then making soup. I sauteed the veg in olive oil and instead of double cream, used Oatly oat cream to make this dairy free.
Nettles are super healthy, nutrient dense and apparently, ingesting them can help to relieve hay fever, so you could try drinking nettle tea if you're a sufferer (steep the leaves in water for 5 minutes).
This is a spring and early summer recipe, so just in the nick of time.
