Nettle Soup
4 cups nettles
50g butter 
1 large onion peeled and finely chopped 
1 litre vegetable or chicken stock, or even light fish stock 
1 large potato, peeled and cut into cubes 
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped 
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 
Wearing rubber gloves, sort through the nettles, discarding anything you don't like the look of and any thick stalks. Wash the nettles and drain in a colander. 
Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add the onion and cook gently for 5-7 minutes until softened. 
Add the stock, nettles, potato and carrot. Bring to a simmer and cook gently until the potato is soft, about 15 minutes. 
Remove from the heat. Using an electric hand-held stick blender, purée the soup and then season with salt and pepper to taste.
