Wild Garlic & Nettle Soup


When I found a patch of wild garlic growing in my local park recently, I knew I had to make Wild Garlic & Nettle Soup. This is one of my favorite recipes from my childhood. I used to forage for nettles and wild garlic with my father in the fields behind our house. He’d wear thick gloves and pick the nettles and I would pluck the more delicate wild garlic leaves and flowers. We’d bring back our bounty and set about making nettle and wild garlic soup together.

And this is one of the best nettle and wild garlic soup recipes I have come across. It’s really easy to make too. Start by sautéing the onion, leek, celery, carrot, potato until softened. Add stock and simmer before adding the nettles and wild garlic in batches. Blend the soup before pouring in milk for creaminess. Serve with my Wild Nettle Bread rolls.

To make the Wild Garlic & Nettle Soup, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Wild Garlic & Nettle Soup


Melt butter and oil


Place 1 tablespoon of oil and 25 grams of butter in a large pot and heat until melted.


Sauté vegetables


Place 1 diced onion, 1 sliced leek, 2 celery stalks, 1 carrot and one small chopped potato in the pot with a good pinch of salt. Stir to mix. Cover the pot and sauté the mixture for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Add stock


Pour in 1.2 liters of stock and simmer for 10 minutes.


Add nettles and wild garlic


Add the nettle leaves in batches, stirring between additions. Add the wild garlic leaves and simmer for a further two minutes.




Remove the soup from the heat and blend until smooth.


Add milk and season


Return the pot to the heat and pour in 3 tablespoons of milk. Stir to combine and taste. Adjust the seasoning.



Place the soup in large bowls and drizzle with extra oil. Sprinkle some wild garlic flowers on top, if you have them. Serve with olive oil and some edible wild garlic flowers on top.

I love the design of the dish and how flavorful it turned out to be.

Used soy milk instead of normal milk and it actually went really well with everything.

Arely Baab

Wanted to add a bit more to this so tossed in some bacon bits and cheese.

This was really tasty and green! Two of my favorite things in a bowl.

This is even better if you chop up some chicken breast and toss it in there, it can be a full lunch :)

This is like a resturant served soup that I managed to make in my own household, just perfection.

Anneliese Feigelson

Kinda grainy in my opinion but it wasn't too bad or anything, just had it with some white bread.

Had this with some flatbread [the recipe is also on this site] it was ultra good together!

Great recipe, I enjoyed this garlic nettle soup more than the celery soup, much more flavors in this one.

I made this before I made dinner and honestly this filled us up more than any other soup could, we had to wait another hour before eating something else.


I love this! So healthy & delicious!
