Wonderful summer that makes it so easy to cook cheap and healthy food! If you do not have ground elder in the garden, be happy for it is a miserable weed, and no you can’t it it all. But maybe there is someone you know who wants to give you some to cook with, or you can mix in some spinach leaves instead.
Nettles also grows almost like a weed. Personally, I have no problems with them in the garden, they stay along the edges of the garden and make it perfect for me to pick some for cooking time to time.
I didn’t have patient to pick so much, so this recipe was just two bowls of soup, but it was very good, so you have time to pick more, do it!
South on ground elder and nettle
2 cups ground elder
2 cups nettle
1 small yellow onion
1/2 cups oat cream
2 cups water
1 stock cube
1/2 cup chop chives
1 tbsp cornstarch + 1 tablespoon water
Rinse and clean the green leaves carefully. Boil in plenty of water for 10 minutes and then pour off the water. I took a knife and chopped the leaves directly to the pot, but you can take them on a cutting board if you prefer. Chop the onion and put it in the pan and let sizzle along with the leaves.
Pour in the water, keep in stock cube and oat cream, boil together for 10 minutes. Blend the soup with a hand blender. Does the soup seem a little too thin, mix the cornstarch and water in a cup and whisk in the soup.
Chop the chives and sprinkle each plate or blend into the soup.
