Our gardens, meadows and forests offer an incredible amount of deliciousness. And so today I went for a walk and collected enough nettles to make a delicious spinach. Make sure when you collect nettles or other herbs or plants that they are not near a road. The exhaust fumes are absorbed by the plants. Therefore, it is advisable to collect and process them in places far away from roads.
I served oven-cooked cauliflower and Périgord truffles with the aromatic nettle spinach, a perfect choice. This combination of fresh greens, succulent vegetables and noble mushrooms will set your taste buds abuzz.
Let’s start with the nettle spinach. This healthy leafy vegetable is rich in vitamins and minerals and has a tangy flavour that goes perfectly with the other ingredients. The spinach is sautéed with garlic and onions and then seasoned with a little lemon juice and butter.
Of course, roasted potatoes and fried eggs also go wonderfully well with the nettle spinach – in itself, the combinations are open to any possibilities.
