Stinging nettle is a wild and unruly plant, and, like many wild foods, it is extraordinarily rich in nourishment. Particularly rich in beta carotene and other antioxidants as well as B vitamins, folate, potassium, iron, sulphur and vitamin C, stinging nettle puts spinach and kale to shame.
Steam stinging nettle on top of your veggie stir fry or mix in as you would spinach. Stinging nettle can substitute for spinach in any cooked recipe (they lose their sting when cooked). You can add them to lasagna, make a tea, make pasta with them, throw them in soups or stews, etc.
