About the Recipe

Remember to forage young tips only and away from the dog-accessible edge... and wear gloves!
Why not serve with the wild garlic & three cornered leek pesto?! (See pinwheels recipe)


  • 40 gms young nettle tips

  • 150 gms plain flour (preferably "00")

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • salt & pepper


Step 1

Place the nettles in boiling water for 2 mins, stir, drain as well as possible

Step 2

Blitz in the food processor with the eggs

Step 3

Mix everything until it forms a dough, a dusting of flour on the board stops its sticking so much

Step 4

Wrap in cling film and place in a container with a lid, leave in the fridge for 12 hours

Step 5

Roll out thinly, cut and cook for 2-3 minutes
