It’s that time of year when the spring greens are at prime pickings, but what the heck do you do with it all? Here is one recipe that i really enjoy with dandelion, nettle and dock, spring tonic soup**! Good and good for you!
2 cups fresh young nettle tops (don’t forget to wear the gloves when handling our stinging sister)
1 cup fresh dock leaves (yellow, wavy)
1/2 cup dandelion leaves
2 cups of water
1 onion minced
2 carrots, chopped
4-5 mushrooms, there are a couple of our own homegrown shiitake in there! the rest are mini bellas
6 cups of water + 2 tbls miso (white or brown)
clean and chop the greens, cook in 2 cups of water (use a big pot here). In a separate pan cook onions in olive oil until brown. when greens are cooked add onions, carrots, mushrooms, miso and a pinch of salt. let cook for about 30 min, then enjoy!!
