Stinging Nettle Risotto

Our Paddock to Plate Cooking Series, demonstrates how to create simple Italian dishes from seasonal produce you can find in your vegetable garden or local store.

Stinging Nettle is abundant across many gardens during Spring and makes for a hearty, impressively bright green and most importantly very tasty risotto.  This vegetable is the undergo of Spring but packs a tasty punch, is full of iron and histamines for hay fever preparedness. Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed.

All you need is: 

  • Stinging Nettle (from your garden or local store, hint – we suggest using the soft tips where possible)
  • Rice
  • Vegetable Stock
  • Parmesan
  • Unsalted Butter
  • Water

 

Buon appetito!
