This is a dense and delicious dark green nettle soup. Make it when nettles show up at the farmers markets in the spring. Be sure to wear gloves when handling the nettles or they'll sting you!
Yum! This was super easy to prepare and wonderful. My only criticisms would be: 1) This is too rich. Rather than a soup, it would make an amazing pasta sauce, particularly for cheese ravioli. 2) What is the cream shown in the photo? We served it with kackavall, an Albanian salty cheese similar to feta, but I'm guessing sour cream or heavy cream would also be good. - 02 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this is really good soup! added a bit of lemon juice to my recipe and it came out excellent! I served mine with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkled with pepper. It was a major hit with the husband! - 10 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is so easy to make and tastes great. I ate it as a soup, but plan to use the leftovers on pasta as a previous reviewer suggested. I will also use low salt chicken broth next time as it was just a little salty for my taste. - 24 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
