I know Spring is about to end and Summer is approaching, which means soup may not be a dish many people look forward to have to warm their stomach. I know many people prefer fresher dishes, but I have to share this unique soup with you. If you are following this blog for a while, you know the post about health benefits of stinging nettle. I bought a bunch from local bazaar and got this recipe from mom II. I was amazed with the result as I must admit I didn’t expect it to be that yummy. If you are aware of health benefits of this herb and looking for new ideas to use it in your dishes, try this soup.
