Super Human Nettles Soup

May 04, 2020

nettles soupINGREDIENTS

  • 1/2-2/3 cup diced leek and/or spring onion, white and pale green parts
  • 1 TBSP organic butter (I used cultured butter)
  • 2 TBSP organic olive oil (use all olive oil for vegan/dairy-free)
  • 1 lb fresh nettles or other non-sulfurous green, such as spinach, or even lettuces
  • 48 oz bone broth (or any other broth, or water)
  • 1 cup cashews, soaked for at least a few hours but preferably overnight
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg + extra for garnish
  • 2 tsp Maldon smoked salt (if you have it)
  • 2 heaped tsp chopped preserved lemon (or 2 tsp lemon juice or apple cider vinegar)
  • salt + pepper to taste


In a large, heavy-bottomed stockpot, heat butter and/or olive oil.

Saute the leeks and/or spring onion (or whatever onion-y item you have!)
until soft and fragrant.

Meanwhile, wearing gloves, remove the nettles from their stems and rinse
well. Toss the nettles into the pot and mix thoroughly with the sauteed
leek mixture. Saute over medium heat for a few minutes until the
nettles start to wilt.

Add broth, preserved lemon, smoked salt and spices. (If you don't have
the preserved lemon, don't add the lemon juice or ACV yet--you'll at the
end). Bring to a gentle simmer. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Turn off heat and allow to stand for a few minutes.

Add cashews, and then working in batches, puree in a high speed blended
until creamy.

Add salt and pepper to taste, along with lemon juice or ACV and extra
collagen, if desired. Garnish with a little freshly grated nutmeg.

Got Sick - Respiratory Specific
Catherine - San Francisco
Extra-Level Respiratory Support

Nourishing Lung tincture has been our go-to during the now-annual fire season, reducing the impacts of smoke & polluted air, and for providing overall respiratory support.
Got Sick-Respiratory Specific is a great addition for the onset of URIs and other respiratory distress, as it seems to act rapidly and deeply. It's also very effective in combination with Nourishing Lung. My husband was developing a URI following surgery, and before calling the Dr for antibiotics, he opted to try using both tinctures, together with Got Sick regular formula. Significant improvement occurred within 12 hours and he was able to clear it without medication. Highest recommendation.

Thank you for letting us know how these worked for you!

Helps some when eating dairy or gluten on a occasional basis. Have purchased several bottles over the past few years.

Life saver!

Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.
