Happy New Year Nettle Fans!

Because it’s a new year, a New Year’s resolution may be on your mind. Perhaps losing weight, changing your wardrobe, saving the planet, reducing your carbon footprint, living healthier? Have you ever thought about going vegan? Give it a try for a month and you will see how many good things you can accomplish with that. Everyone is different, every body works differently, you have to find what is good for YOU. No pressure, just ask your human body: “Hey, would you fancy a vegan nettle pesto as a start of 2021 Veganuary?”. If your body says yes, here is how you can satisfy its needs:

  • 1 cup dried nettles soaked in 2 cups of water
  • ½ cup parsley
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ½ tablespoon sea salt

Soak the dried nettles at room temperature overnight (or 6-8 hours). Drain excess water. Add all the ingredients, use a kitchen blender or food processor until creamy. Spread the pesto on top of toast, crackers or pasta. Enjoy!
