May nettles are best for soups, i.e. young shoots 10-15 cm with delicate leaves. Collect it in clean places. Nettle is healthy and tasty! Nettle contains vitamins B, C, E, K, trace elements calcium, selenium, zinc, iron, phosphorus, copper, chlorine, formic acid, flavonoids, tannins, polysaccharides, a lot of protein …
The site already has soups with nettles and I am adding another version of light borscht.
Prepare the ingredients:
Chop onions and carrots and simmer them in vegetable oil, salt.
No need to fry!
Add tomato sauce or tomato paste and simmer for two to three minutes.
Add potato pieces to boiled water or broth.
After about five minutes, add the Chinese cabbage.
Rinse the nettle.
Then chop and throw in at the very end of cooking.
Remove the nettle borscht from the heat, let it brew a little.
Hard-boiled eggs perfectly complement nettle borscht.
Nettle borsch is ready.
Enjoy your meal! Be healthy!
