Nettle Soup Recipe


Classic Nettle Soup

This is a classic soup, bringing a lot of nutrients and minerals that the body is craving after those cold winter months. The base of this soup is a leek and potato with nettle leaves added in late with the leeks, to keep the nutrient boost and the vibrant green colour.


  • Half a bag of nettles, washed (about 200g)
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 onions, skinned and diced
  • A handful of wild garlic stalks (50g) finely chopped, (or two garlic cloves)
  • 2 Leeks, chopped
  • Two Celery Sticks, chopped

. One and a half litres vegetable

. A little single cream


  1. Boil the potatoes and celery for 10 mins in the vegetable stock.
  2. Fry off the onions, leeks, wild garlic stalks and the nettles for 2 mins.
  3. Mix the two together and put in a blender, blend until smooth
  4. Add a swirl of cream in your serving bowl before eating, along with salt and pepper
  5. Why not add some fried nettle crisps to go on your soup?
