Incredible Cooling Nettle Lime Soup

Well Taryn had a craving.  She needed something cooling and refreshing, yet potently green.... An Inspiration came to me and from that OMG,
I made a very tasty amazing soup.


Incredible Cooling Nettle Soup.
A bunch of fresh nettles, enough to jam into a large pot.
1 Lime
 2 tbs.Lemon Juice
 A handfull of shredded Coconut
5 tbs.Fresh Butter more or less
2 tsp. Toasted sesame oil
Salt to taste
Cayenne to taste
Celery seed 1-2 tbs.
Coriander 1-2 tbs
Dry fruit… optional I put in some plums and strawberry leather I made
Ground almonds 2 cups
OK, first you steam the Nettles for 20 miutes...
Then you stick them in a blender and blend em up
Put em back in the pan, and save any leftover water from steaming them and make tea.
Grate up the lime rind, then add it to the soup...
Squeeze the lime into the soup and if you want you can throw the halves in and cook. 
Throw everything else in and simmer for as long as you can stand it and not eat it....

Eat it right away, or make it a cold soup...put in fridge and cool it off.. Yummy

Start with a packed full pan...add just enough water to steam for 20 minutes

 ...Puree it Up...

 Add in everything, then simmer.
We got some nice yummy organic butter from some friends with a cow, cheaper than store bought.
Taryn said it was just what she needed...and " The Best Soup Ever"
