Nettle Soup

This is a nutty creamy soup. It's broth made from a nettle, mallow and sage tea. Inspired by a dear elder who has rheumatoid arthritis complicated by a pneumonia, and I had the beginning of a cold.  This was very nourishing for the both of us, and my family really enjoyed the taste of it as well. 

  • 4 tbls Nettle (dried or fresh herb)
  • 4 tbls Mallow (dried or fresh) 
  • 2 tbls Sage (dried or fresh herb)

  • 5 Celery sticks
  • 1 Onion 
  • 4 Garlic cloves
  • 1 head of Cabbage
  • 3 portabella mushrooms
  • 4 cups of water

Boil water with a large tea ball to create tea broth with the nettles, mallow and sage. Allow to boil and steep till a beautiful deep brown. Stir fry celery, onion, garlic, then add cabbage and mushrooms with olive oil and seasoning. Add stir fry to blender with a little bit of tea broth. Then pour creamy contents into remaining broth and stir. Pair with your favorite salad.
