Juliette’s Kitchen Recipes- Nettle and Watercress Soup

Today i decided to do a what’s being eaten in Juliette’s Kitchen post to help give people interesting ideas on meals to cook as i know it can be a chore coming up with new ideas.

So today i made a nettle and watercress soup. This is filled with iron and iodine, vitamin a, c and e.

to make this soup its really simple..

Nettle and Watercress Soup

start by sauteing one leek 

1 chillie

1 tsp fresh grated horseradish (great time to thin your crop in the garden)

1 tbs coconut oil or olive oil

when the leeks are soft then add in the nettles 1 cup

and 2 small potatoes diced

1 carrot diced

all with 1/2 pint vegetable stock

let this cook for approx 30 mins simmering – you may need to top up the water if its running out. You want the veggies to be covered

Next you add a cup full of watercress for the last 2 minutes.

Then take off the stove and blend and season to taste

A delicious and nutritious soup
