    Eismeer's Note:

    This is a traditional Austrian dish, and yes, it really calls for the ordinary stinging nettle, which has, when cooked, a distinct, nutty and aromatic flavour, that reminds a bit of spinach. You can buy young, tender nettle leaves at farmer markets or be daring and pick them yourselves. But don't forget to wear gloves. The nettles won't of course sting any longer when cooked. This soup is really worth a try, you won't regret the effort. Delicious! You can substitute young spinach leaves or swiss chard for the nettles). In the ingredient list I had to select spinach, as nettles were not recognized as edible food :)
