Nettle Soup Recipe

Yet another healthy, vegetarian meal from Armenian cuisine: nettle soup.

While this nutritious green is in season, use the chance and cook it a few times. Add this nettle soup to your healthy meals or lent menu. I can guarantee you’ll enjoy every sip of it.







Different Armenian regions make this soup uniquely. I’m sharing my version, which is quite similar to my grandmother’s nettle soup.
