Preparation 20 min – Cooking 10 min
For four bowls
• Wash the chervil and chisel it. Wash the garlic and the onions, then mince them.
• Heat the oil in a pan. Simmer the garlic and the onions to simmer for 1 minute without letting them color. Add the chervil, the vegetable broth and bring to a boil.
• Add coarse salt and the nettles, then cook for 2 minutes. Stir, rectify the seasoning and filer.
The hot tip: serve this broth with nettles chips.
If you have too many nettles, don’t throw them out ; put them in the oven, sprinkled with a dash of olive oil and sprinkled with salt to create chips. They will also be delicious when served in a quiche.
PS : you can buy your nettles online or at the herbarist near from you.
