20 May Nettle soup with chickpeas and feta
If your garden is anything like mine then you’ll have plenty of stinging nettles in it at this time of year.
This is in fact the ideal time of year to cook with them, as they are still young. Once they have flowered, they are too old.
Pick them with gloves on, obviously, then pour some boiling water over them, and they’re ready to use! I added mine to this refreshing, zingy soup, but you can use them in any recipes that require spinach or greens.
