Submitted for your delight and approval (also apples :p ), this wonderful nettle soup!

Chopped onions and sautèed them until onions are golden
Added some garlic and a tiny bit of fresh chili
Added a big batch of nettle leaf.
When leaf were all mushy  added water bit by bit and heated it all to a boil.
Turned down the heat to a minimum. Let the pot stay for a few minutes.
Smoothed it all out with a hand held mixer.
Added some cream.

Served with mushrooms (foraged in the store), chickpeas, pumpkin seeds and some spring onion,

TASTY!

To document your completion of the BB, provide the following:
- A picture of one of the plants in the wild
- A picture of obviously more than a cup of foraged ingredients (or pic of the ingredients in a measuring cup)
- A picture of the finished dish
- A description of what the dish is

I found my first chicken of the woods mushrooms this week after a few days of rain!  This is found on back trails at a local state park I hike/walk my dogs at.  

I used half of it (about 2 cups) sauteed in olive oil until soft and cooked through,   added fresh veggies from garden as well.  

After tasting,  this was not very "chicken" like to me;   more like tofu or scrambled egg in texture and taste.   Decided it need "real" chicken as well,  so I opened a jar of previously canned chicken thighs and it was yummy!    So mushroom,  chicken, and fresh veg. saute!

I foraged burdock. I washed them, cut them, and made a stir fried out of them.

My new favorite salad: purslane, lemon juice, and tahini. This lunch salad also has yellow bell pepper in it.

Staff note (Mike Barkley) :

Looks like a great salad but I noticed you already have this BB so this was converted back to a regular post.

 
This parrot is no more. It has ceased to be. Now it's a tiny ad:
