Nettle soup

Image

Image

After a very rainy day I took a nice little evening walk, listened to the birds, picking a bag with nettles.

Image

A good rinse.

Image

A couple of minutes in boiling, salted water.

Image

Reserve some of the water. Drain the nettles.

Image

Melt a stick of butter, chop and add 2 onions and 2 cloves of garlic.

Image

Add the nettles and 2 cups of the water.

Image

Add 2 cups of heavy cream and 1/2 package of Philly cream cheese. Mix. Salt and pepper.

Image

Served with a cooked egg. A dash of cayenne pepper?
