It is Spring and we have plenty of nettles growing now. Nettles really make a nutrient dense soup because they are so packed with minerals and nutrients. They are alkalizing which helps keep the blood clean and healthy. When harvesting nettles it is best to wear some gloves to protect you from the stingers especially if you are a novice. If you do not be open to being stung!
What you will need:
A High Speed Blender – like a Vitamix with the plunger
Hot Spring Water from the Kettle to pour over the ingredients or Alternatively you can just let the soup blend on high with the vitamix until it gets warm like soup.
A handful of organic or wild carrots
A large piece of organic red onion
1 knob fresh turmeric root or turmeric powder – 1 tsp
2 big handfuls of wild nettles – enough to fill up the vitamix almost to the top
A healthy scoop of South River Miso paste or your choice of miso
Half an Avocado – Reserve the other half for a garnish
Sprouted Buckwheat to add nutrition and texture
Cultured Vegetables to top the soup – as a garnish but more importantly as a source for probiotics and healthy digestion.
Habaneros – for flavor and to take out any bacteria..as you can see in the photo I am a bit modest with habaneros!
It will cream up nicely, then pour into a bowl and garnish.
This soup is a healing soup, it is easy on your digestive system and helps to restore your body while nourishing you.
This is food for energy, strength and vitality.Enjoy!
