“I'm giving my hubby credit for this recipe because he picked the nettle and cleaned it. You have to be very careful when handling this herb. It has little hairs that can irritate your skin, so if you pick it wear rubber gloves or cut it with scissors and use tongs. Once it's cooked or juiced the sting goes away and you can enjoy the wonderful taste. I served this with garlic toast.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam the nettle in a large pot for about 4-5 minutes. Save the liquid for soup or stews, or drink it, it's very nutritious.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a non-stick fry pan and saute the onion and garlic on medium low. Don't scorch the garlic, that will alter the flavour.
  3. When the onion is transparent add the lime juice and stir, turn down low.
  4. Add the steamed nettle and grate the nutmeg over top.
  5. Add the salt and pepper and taste your dish. Adjust seasonings if necessary.
  6. Remove from fry pan onto a nice serving dish and sprinkle with the grated cheese.
  7. I served mine with the garlic toast.
  8. Bon Appetit!
