Nettle soup Russian recipe

Nettle soup

Traditional Russian summer nettle soup for beauty vitamin E
When nature awakens and the herbs and leaves start to grow, reaching out for the sun, it’s high time to go to the countryside and collect some young nettles, which are rich in vitamins. You can use them for delicious and super healthy nettle soup and also make drinks full of goodness and “beauty” vitamin E.

There is something mentally soothing about nettle soup. It’s a combination of factors that spring is finally here, the richness of vitamins in the unusual ingredient and the fact that you actually collected your own food in the wild – when was last time you did that?

The nettle soup proclaims: Spring has come, I’m good for you, and you’re a great gatherer!
