Ingredients

  • 4 Cups water
  • Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 bunch nettles, leaves picked and washed
  • 6 eggs, preferably free-range or organic
  • 3/4 Cups light cream
  • 1 small bunch sorrel, sliced thinly
  • 7 Ounces feta cheese, preferably a softer style goat feta

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a pot, bring the water to a boil and add salt. Add the nettles and cook for 5 minutes. Drain, refresh under cold water and wring out in a kitchen towel to remove as much moisture as possible, then chop roughly.

In a bowl, whisk the eggs and cream together and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in the nettles and sorrel, reserving a little of the sorrel for garnish.

Divide the mixture between two 6 ¼-by-1 ¼-inch-deep round baking dishes. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven immediately. Crumble the feta cheese on top and scatter with the reserved sorrel. Serve straight away. A nice bit of toasted bread on the side is lovely with this.

Nettle Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Nettle Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
